15 year old bay gelding


Eligible for RoR Elite Series


Very sad sale of Darcy.
I have previously had a couple of sharers on him but I feel he deserves just 1 loving owner and I don't have the time or money to provide this to him.
He is 15 years young, does not in any way act his age, very forward going but also has brakes, would be perfect for hacking and maybe small competitions. I think he would be amazing at pony club and he also loves hunting.
He is not a novice ride as he is very up on his toes and can be a little skittish, just very traditional thoroughbred.

He loves to jump and is amazing at cross country jumping anything I show him. I have jumped him up to 3ft courses and he does them with ease. He is ridden in rubber snaffle in the school but normally a Pelham if doing cross country as he does get very excited.
Great to catch, to clip and with the vet or farrier.
Shod on the fronts only without issue and up-to-date on worming. Teeth done only last month.
Darcy has good ground manners. He is very good on the road and has no fear of bikes lorries buses or tractors.
Brilliant with dogs and children.

Darcy is a real character with a very honest personality and I am very sorry to be losing him.
Happy for him to be vetted, he had kissing spine when younger but had it operated on so causes no problems.
Recently fitted with a new saddle that can be sold with him separately.
I am really looking for the perfect home for him so I would want to come and visit and see where he would be. I am open to him being on full loan for a few months first to check it is the best home for him.
I want him to go somewhere with field friends not to be out on his own, he has been in fields of up to 20 other horses and even in mixed herds with mares and geldings with no problems.
He lives out in the summer without any problems but should be stabled at least at night in the winter.


£1,900.00  with all rugs and tack except saddle.
Saddle is another £600 and is a leather GFS with an adjustable gullet.
