8yo TB Gelding

Hi everyone,

I have an 8 year old Thoroughbred Gelding that I might end up having to sell in the near future....I've left for college and haven't been able to bear to part with him yet but is really impractical for me to keep him at this point. It absolutely breaks my heart, I love him dearly. I thought I would post him on here to see if there was any interest.

Born in 2000
Very cute horse with a lot of personality. I got him off the track, he was very antisocial and not happy at all, but now after 3 years he is a very sweet and happy horse. I have been training him for jumping, and he's making a lot of progress. I ride him in a D-ring snaffle which he goes pretty well in. Here are some pictures and a video of him, please let me know what your opinions are on him!!

I was thinking of asking around 5k for him. Thanks for the advice!

More info on Charlie:

He has amazing feet for a TB. Very large and strong- he has been barefoot for over a year with no problems whatsoever. He's stockier than the average TB as well, very muscular. He stands well for the farrier, loads very easily. He lives outside and is really happy, pretty easy on blankets as well. He is a really wonderful horse.

*gurgles* That is my dream horse!! He is so utterly, completely beautiful... If I could afford him and afford to ship him to Australia I'd buy him in an instant.

he is sweet!! all I can say is the horse market has not rebounded yet so tho $5,000 is a fair price you might not get it. I have a 15.3 7 year old tb mare trained in dressage and jumping and am asking only $4,000 (selling for friend) and she is a dreamy mover and jumper and had only mild interest so far. But good luck, best to sell him since he is so young and can make someone a nice horse rather than be a pasture ornament. I know its hard to do .... best wishes

Awe he is amazing! Where are you located? My current horse's lease goes up in April, and I am looking forward to a horse of my own. Your horse sounds absolutely amazing! I bet he's such a sweet boy.

Haha nevermind. I didn't see the location under your username...I'm kinda new here.
Unless you would deliver to Georgia, I don't think it would work.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
