For confident rider only. Benson has recently been in training with Jamie Dobson to bring him back in to light work. Benson has excellent ground manners and lives on hay only. We have owned him for 3 years and he was purchased for my husband to join me in riding, however after the birth of our second child 2 yrs ago Benson has basically been a handsom ornament. He is up to date with teeth, drenching, worming and has just had new shoes. Benson needs to be ridden at least twice a week to get the best out of him. He thrives on human attention and gets grumpy when left without human contact. As you can see from the videos he still paces occassionally when unbalanced and canter is a work in progress. He would be perfect for a gutsy young rider to be their best friend grow and learn together. He has been on trail rides, to the beach and can be ridden bareback. He is great to float and shoe and does not windsuck. Full vet check is welcomed. $800 comes with rugs and bridle.
