If you're experienced, 16.2hh OTTB

I am leasing my old horse (i know, ironic right) as i look for a new one. But he is in fact for sale. He's 16.2hh, EXTREMELY fit, perfect on the flat, auto leads, very very long flowing canter, always brave jumping, not a stop in him, 11yo, dark chocolate bay, never taken a lame step in his life, tough as nails and as sweet as a butterfly, THOROUGHBRED CONFORMATION, constant winner, extremely agile and quick through turns, rides quiet on the flat like a hunter or dressage, rides like a springy jumper in the jumper ring, hops over 3'9", schooled up to 4'3", unique jumper, very forgiving and honest, non-spooky (except he doesn't like rolled up carpet...), light on his feet (virtually no sound) and does not snort his way around (silent mouth, silent mind), very smart and learns commands fast, loads perfect, stands for vet and farrier and dentist, though he DOES NOT like clipping. As wonderful as he is, he is NOT for a beginner or even an amateur!!!! He is a horse who needs a rider who is CONFIDENT and knows CONSTANTLY what she/he is doing and exactly what she/he wants the horse to be doing!!! Rides in a gag but very soft, DOES get excited about jumps but never any bad behavior, running martingale and NO whips or spurs. Hes a very experienced and well rounded horse for anyone looking to compete in the Low-High Child/Adult Jumpers at A-AA shows. Wonderful boy, NOT for an amateur. Price is 15K. And a forever, showing, perfect loving home is a must. Texas located.

Do not bother responding if you do not intend to jump him 3'6" on a regular basis. Don't respond if you ever feel unconfident or lose focus easily. Experience needed.

I am a bit confused - you are requiring the buyer provide a "forever" home, but you are selling as this horse no longer suits your needs/wants to move up -- what if the buyer reaches that same point?

Well when i say "forever home" i mean someone who would love him for years and years as any horse should be. As i loved him and his old owners loved him. Hes come so far from when i bought him and is just the perfect little guy now and im being honest. His only "vice" is clipping, he has to be sedated. But his hair usually stays short and "clips" on its own.
