I have several questions but I will try and give you as much information as I know about the horse. He is a 17 year old Irish Sporthorse (will be 18 this spring) gelding imported from Ireland. No vices, easy keeper, front shoes only if you are riding him. Easy to handle and gets along so well with other horses.
His previous life he was a fox hunter, eventer, and jumper through 3'9" . A chip to his coffin joint along with some normal aging now his job is w/t/c for advanced beginners or beginner adults. Okay to jump smaller jumps. Great on the trail and on the fox hunt he is fine.
My concern in the chip in the coffin bone. Could/would this cause me problems if I don't want to use him for jumping as I just had to put down my horse in August for a leg injury.
Please if anyone can offer advise it would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I would be getting for free.
