13 year old bright bay gelding




RoR Registered


Raced 16 times; last race over hurdles but the rest flat; did win twice


Extremely sad sale as i can't give him the time he truly needs. Owned for 5 years.

Not a novice ride, i feel he would suit a quiet confident rider who could bring him out to his full potential.

Snaffle mouth not strong at all

Has been placed county level in RoR (Northumberland county show 2018 ) but I  believe he could go further in the right hands as I can get very nerves when competing.

Has done dressage. Last prelim 67%

He loves to jump, jumping 95 at home with me but I believe he has the scope to jump bigger.

Has been crosscounty schooling. so could easy event; he has never stopped while I have owned him. He's bold and honest.

Hacks alone and in company; great in open spaces and it doesn't phase him when other horses canter past him.

He does love a good groom and scratch. Excellent to clip but is a little head shy. Good for the dentist; up to date on his vaccinations

He dose have to be sedated a little when having his feet done. This is mainly for his back feet. Domoecedan - only a 3rd of a tube.

William is happier on a quiet yard and is best grazed on his own in a small paddock as he can be difficult to catch. However he has been out with others and had a friend to play and was no bother to catch.

He is good to load but travels better in company; he cannot be left on his own on the trailer or wagon if he's travelled with company. I have travelled him on his own but I have left him alone.

Currently living out 24/7 but does not like to be left out on his own but is happy to be stabled as long as he can have a roll; indeed would happily live in.

He does windsuck but always has his collar on and since he has been on a low starch diet he doesn't do it much. he doesn't hold on to any thing.

This is a really hard sale and I will be heart broken when he is gone. Please no time wasters as this is hard enough as it is. 
Tack and some rugs available at extra cost.
