Mon is 20 years old (but don’t tell him that!) 16.1hh OTT full of life, and just the best schoolmaster. Mon was originally bought for my husband, who at the time had only been having weekly lessons at the riding school. We take him to the beach, clinics, shows, you name it, nothing phases him.
Mon evented up to 105 (ready to go 1*) with his previous owner, but unfortunately due to an injury he had to have time off. He is a super careful jumper and will never knock a rail in a competition (trust me, he knows the difference between home and shows!) and is not scared of anything.
He has taught me so much, and given both my husband and I so much confidence in our riding. Whilst dressage is not his forte, he will work nicely in a frame, he has scored in the 40s with his previous owner. We have never been eliminated at a show, and he has never embarrassed me by misbehaving out in public! I did a season at 80cm eventing, but I have show jumped him up to a meter. He is ready to go 95 eventing (when you are, he is also quite happy to do 65 or 80).
He is really easy to feed, and doesn't have issues maintaining his weight or muscle. I've had 12 months off due to pregnancy, and whilst he has been lightly ridden by others during this time, he is ready to go, just as I left him.
Mon doesn't like to be left by himself, so would be suitable to a property or adjistment where there are other horses around, at shows he is quite happy provided he can see other horses from his yard.
This is a heartbreaking sale, and only being done as right now I don't have the time to ride him and compete him as much as he needs (this horse thrives off work and going out). There is the option to buy some of his gear if required.
Please note Mon would not be suitable for extremely hot locations, and will not be sold to someone who hasn't come out to meet him.
