4. ‘Lovely

ex-racehorses for sale

Height: 16hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 12

Selling points: “‘Crab’ is a Shantou gelding who raced successfully for most of his career and is now looking for a change. He is a lovely lad, easy to do and loves human company. He raced approximately three weeks ago, and has been learning all about life outside of racing. He is a forward going ride, but not silly or fizzy. He has done a lot of racing and has some battlescars to prove it. His legs aren’t the prettiest and he has an old but visible tendon strain. He has raced without issue on this leg for years and will thrive with a slightly quieter life now. He also has a small fatty lump on his back which again, doesn’t bother him and can be discussed in more detail. This does not affect his way of going, and he is sound, fit and happy in his work. He is a beautiful mover, has a lovely collected canter and a flashy, powerful trot. He hacks alone and in company and is unfazed by traffic, farm life, and open spaces. He has attended several riding club rallies where he has proved he has a talent for showjumping and is learning quickly about distances, collection and fillers etc. He wouldn’t be suitable for a total novice due to his history, but will thrive in a home where he can have a go at doing a bit of everything.

5. ‘Incredibly sweet’

ex-racehorses for sale

Height: 15.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: five

Selling points: “‘Milo’ is an incredibly sweet gelding by Milan. Having only run in one point-to-point last season, he is an unspoilt, lovely blank canvass for someone to put their own stamp on. He is snaffle mouthed, good to do in every way and is good in open spaces. He is very willing, and enjoys his work. He is good in traffic and is getting used to busy farm life. He is however a green five-year-old that will need a competent rider who will be able to bring out the best in him. Since being with his current owners, he has been along to several lessons and has done lots of hacking.”
