Marty is a gentle, quiet-natured horse with a good temperament both on and off ground. He is great to ride, with well-developed paces, and has a lovely soft mouth, so requires someone with soft hands.
He is an OTTB, and went to competitions and ARC with his previous owner. He is a bold jumper; however, due to a slight soundness issue in his right hip and some minor arthritis, is best suited to light jumping, general/pleasure riding and bush hacking, for an adult rider, looking to start, or end, their day and spend their weekend in the saddle. He has, however, been commended on his lovely paces, and has promise as a good dressage horse with the right training.
He is currently not in work, so therefore, requires someone who is looking not only for a pleasure horse, but also for a training project. He is a lovely horse to ride, but since being out of work for quite some time needs someone who is willing to put some time and work into him before they can see his full potential. He also needs someone who is willing to manage his arthritis.
Marty has been on trial for the last two months with a lady who speaks very highly of him, but unfortunately, due to circumstances, was unable to take him on permanently. She will, however, be bringing him back into light for work me and is willing to answer any questions you may have about him.
Price is quite negotiable, and all gear is also for sale.
Vet checks are welcome.
Marty is for sale through no fault of his own. It is with a very heavy heart that I must sell him due to uni and work commitments.
For more inquiries, please give me a call.
