Stanley - 14hds, 12 years old black gelding.
Stan has worked in the Riding School for the last 18 months, taking all levels of riders. He's a willing jumper, has reasonable flatwork and really likes hacking out. He will go anywhere on his own and isn't a spooky sort at all.
This was Stan the day after he arrived at Pocket Nook. It was his first hack from the farm. He encountered lots of things that would have most horses wanting to run for home, but he was excellent and enjoyed every moment of his solo hack.
Big lorries didn't concern him at all, he was very solid and confident in himself.
As you can see, Stan isn't wildly enthusiastic about school work and has become quite bored with the riding school. He would much prefer to have a more varied workload so his next owner will be one who likes to get out and about more, rather than going round the school day after day.....
