Age (Year Born)
16hh, 12yr old gelding by ngahiwi one eye
Bloom is offered for sale due to rider downsizing horses. He is the easiest horse to have around, currently barefoot and has super feet (hunted barefoot no issue), super good doer and not clingy at all, can be left tied up in the yard for hours no hassle. Floats and trucks, self loads.
Bloom needs a kind rider who won’t get up him, he is sensitive and can get stressed but a kind hand is the best thing for him. He has wins in sj to 1.10m and show hunter to 1m he has also hunted and xc schooled to 1.05m, he has also hunted full wire as a youngster and attended a hunt this season with me. Whilst he is very talented I believe he wouldn’t thrive in a fun allrounder home not a super competitive home that wants to go compete to the top every weekend. Great to hack out and leads off other horses.
He is quirky and can buck has reared before but in no way feels unsafe and isn’t a regular behaviour. He does have mild shivers which has never caused him any issue and shouldn’t put people off but price reflects this. He is able to be shod, back up and stand in a yard no issue. We have kept him barefoot purely as there isn’t a real need to have him shod but he is fine for the farrier just needs a little longer to do his hinds. Happy to discuss quirks further with genuinely interested parties.
Bloom really deserves his own best friend to give him the time and love he deserves, I am unfortunately too busy with work and my other horses to do him justice and don’t want him to sit in a paddock. Home is incredibly important.
