Charlie is a beautiful 20 year old chestnut OTTB gelding. I have owned Charlie for 10 years and despite his age he still has a lot to give and teach his riders. I am looking to lease him so he can have a steady job and a new partner to stay in shape with. Ideally, I am looking for a responsible adult, or young adult with parental involvement, who is interested in working primarily on the flat.
I have evented Charlie through beginner novice and competed at local horse shows. He is a wonderful dressage mount when he is consistent work. Charlie also loves to hack out or trail ride (alone or with company) and hunter pace. He would happily show with the right person as he trailers/loads, crossties, clips, and stands patiently for bathing and braiding. Charlie is a perfect gentleman for vet, farrier, etc. He is good around children, dogs, cats, chickens, etc. and with other horses. No bite, kick, rear, cribbing, or destructive barn vices.
I feel I must stress that even though he is a "senior citizen" Charlie is a very strong and, at times, opinionated horse. He can be frisky, playful, and spooky at times - not out of control or mean, but not necessarily the best for beginners. He will definitely require a confident and advanced rider for any type of jumping.
Will consider ON or OFF farm options with exact terms variable depending on situation. **Off farm lease ONLY considered up to/approximately 25 miles from Millville, MA the closer the better** I am in absolutely no rush and am in no way financially driven to lease. I will only lease him if the right person and the right situation come along. Would consider shared boarding expenses in the perfect scenario.
Feel free to call or email me with questions or for more information!
