Trialing 17.1 hh Tb

Im trialing a 17.1 Thoroughbred, I brought a very experienced trainer with me who rode and tested the horse and will continue to assist me. Im not expecting him to go into a frame, do a dressage test, do a whole jumping round ect. Just trail riding, pleasure riding and natural horsemanship. His a very cheap horse so I've asked all the basic questions to seller, checked sellers history selling horses and nothing seems shady.

Trial is 3 weeks long and with a contract Will get a basic vet check at end if horse doesnt buck,rear,pigroot or has float problems. His information 14 years old Gelding No nastin,ess Done trail riding, Done pony club for 4 years, Has jumped 1 metre at pony club, Been ridden by beginners. Floated well with me good to catch and lead tiday, Good to jump today Has some seperation anxiety, but seems to just neigh Doesnt know how to tie up was good to walk,trot and canter today Was good to trail ride today Was good to ride today decent mouth, but a bit lazy.. has been out of work for six months and is a bit overweight.

. I liked his temperament and he seems very calm as he was walked through town around dogs,cars and along roads and footpaths.

Aths he didnt spook once.

The horse is called Red and after walking through town for 40 minutes he was tender footed on the footpath, so he could be a bit tender footed for a couple of days. His feet are a good shape but have cracks because his feet are to dry so I will oil them. He's just been living of grass and being a thoroughbred maybe that's why his feet are like that, but I can't hard feet him because his to fat and I need to get him to lose weight with me so I can see his "true colours".

Good looking horse. Hope he works out for you.

If he doesn't, ask him how he likes polo and cows!

I have videos but I look really bad, and when jumping I had bad position and got left behind and I couldn't remember how to jump ! So ill have videos today. He was trying to evade from trotting an wanting to canter but he has been ridden by a beginer and you can just tell from how hard his mouth is ect. I wasnt letting him get away with cantering and he easily gets over it but its a little annoying.

His also green because of not being in much riding work, but my instructor has seen me ride (fair few times) and is looking at horses for me even if they are green because she knows ill be able to handle them if their not nasty or silly horses.

Sounds good! Horses that have done years of pony club are often good general riding horses, as they've done a bit of everything and put up with a lot!

Hopefully he works out fine :)
