**ANDREW WILSON & CO ONLINE AUCTION JULY 15th-16th**
LOT NUMBER: 11
NAME: Tyson (Ultimate Exclusion)
HEIGHT 15.1h (NOT MEASURED)
DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor)
15.1hh Gelding ( Gelded 25/05/21)
Retired in March, not raced since July 2020. Ex pacer, so he was aloud to canter in his work and has a lovely lope when ridden. Rarely paces under saddle, does bunny hop when transitioning into trot occasionally (sometimes excitement, sometimes just unbalanced). Has shown no buck, rear or bolt, and is on very hot feed and in heavy work with a professional breaker. I am seeking an experienced rider/home who understands how a freshly gelded horse can take some time to become socialised again. He has be paddocked with other horses, and ridden with other horses with absolutely no issues, but he is excitable when meeting new horses, and also is bossy at feed time, so is suited to being paddocked alone and slowly introduced. Hes not nasty, just excited and squeals. He will meet you at the gate, great to lead, tie, float, clip, rug, shoe, needle and worm. Currently up to date with vaccinations, worming, EMT and trimming. Not girthy or humpy, good after a spell but does get hot/excited the first ride back from a spell (doesn't carry on, but requires someone confident to keep him calm) He will walk on the buckle of the reign otherwise, even when ridden independently on roads, and is alot more relaxed and quiet when off hot feed and "in work". He has been ridden on roads and trails, great with cars and dogs, not spooky or silly with a confident rider. Solid lad with still more growing/maturing to do, and is being fed quite alot of hot feed. Currently in work, ridden on road and trails and is established in the canter but does still get a little muddled when doing circle work, but he doesn't pace unless under pressure or unbalanced.
When in work, he's easy to ride and get along with and will thrive with a confident/knowledgeable rider. He has been used as a school horse for learner riders, but unless someone was to continue with lessons, I'd prefer him to go to a knowledgeable rider to keep him down the straight and narrow while he's still young. He's had a couple of outings to Equestrian Centres, and was extremely relaxed and happy to plod around, also quite lazy.
He enjoyed Cross Country and popped over a few jumps and went through the water crossing/creek. He had another two green horses working around him and he kept his cool.
He will come with his rug and feet/teeth/worming up to date. Hes a lovely horse with a bright future, and seems to really love trail riding.
