DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor)
Sadly I am having to put Basil up for sale. Quiet but sensitive, Basil has all the talent in the world. I’ve only had him since March last year. He’s been to xc clinics, riding club, show jumping, trail riding and attended his very first (and only) ODE. He was bred as a performance horse and not to race. Unfortunately I had a fall off my old horse in Jan and due to my injury I haven’t been able to ride since. I’m also starting a new career and just don’t have the time for him. Therefore he’s just coming back into light lunge work at this stage. All this and COVID has really set us back time wise. I had great plans for this horse but I need someone else to take over.
Basil is a very affectionate horse who loves to be in your pocket. He’s been out with other horses and stood by the float by himself without a problem. He’s never bucked, reared or even had a shy. He will go anywhere you ask. He’s great with water and ditches - he will go places my other old horse won’t.
Basil was a late starter so he hasn’t been over worked. Since bringing him back in, he has pulled back a couple of times when having his feet done, so I use a collar on him now. It could be because he’s been out for nearly 12 months.
Conformation wise, he has a couple of scars on his legs but nothing drastic, he has a slight thickening on the inside of his near fore cannon bone (he had that when I got him) which my vet has checked and wasn’t concerned. These are just signs that he’s tough and willing to have a crack at whatever the challenge is.
I feel that Basil will make a great partner for a confident teen or adult. He just wants to be in amongst it and having fun.
