17.3/18hh Gelding, 13 years old - Purebred CB.

Has been out of work over winter, would need brought back in/fitness worked on/muscle tone etc.

He had been out of work when I bought him for a year or so, but was great when I got on. Hacks alone and in company, green in school and jumped with previous owner but sustained an injury (2020 i think, it wasn't disclosed to me at the time, I found out later so not entrirely sure of ins and outs, but I know it required paddock rest - I can provide vet history on this, and it doesn't seem to have caused any long term issues after, but I'd prefer he went as mainly a hacking use/schooling to begin at least.

He needs work on the ground. He is good to lead to and from the field, and comes to call. Does not like the stable - he is not bargy when I am in and will stand back and let me out the door etc, but when I leave he gets anxious and will eventually try to come over (or through) the door, so ideally looking for a home he can stay out 24/7 with a shelter or someone with the tools/time/experience to put into him and work on this, unfortunately again this was not disclosed to me and having a toddler I do not have the time to keep him in a solid routine to be able to work on this. He gets fidgety if left tied up, but is OK (most of the time) if you're beside him. Can be a bit of a nuisance for the farrier, just as he doesn't like to stand but is very food orientated and my farrier is great with him. Best lightly sedated for vets/teeth/clipping due to size.

I will be as honest as possible with any questions so pop me a message if any. Main priority for him is the right home with time, understanding, love and patience to work with him and build a bond as he is a sweet boy (90%) of the time and wants to be loved - he is not bad, he just hasn't had the greatest of starts.

Home most important therefore, priced at a fraction of true CB value as he need brought back into work and obv worked through issues. Sold from field due to requiring a new saddle, comes with rugs and a new fitted bridle. Not for a novice, experienced riders/handlers.
