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 free lease him so he can have a new job and a new partner to stay in work with. Ideally I am looking for a responsible adult, or young adult with parent involvement, who is interested in working primarily on the flat - dressage, equitation, hunter under saddle, trail etc.
I have evented Charlie through beginner novice and competed at many horse shows. He is a wonderful dressage mount when he is consistent work. Charlie also loves to hack out, trail ride, and hunter pace. I'm sure he would still be happy to 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 with children, dogs, cats, chickens, etc. No bite, kick, rear, cribbing, or destructive barn vices.
I must stress that even though he is a "senior citizen" Charlie is a very strong and, at times, opinionated horse. When he jumps if he doesn't want to jump something he'll make you work for it and on the flip side when he's happy to be jumping he can be frisky and playful - never out of control, but not for beginners. He would require a confident and advanced rider for any type of jumping.
**Off farm lease ONLY considered up to/approximately 30 miles from Millville, MA the closer the better** I will consider lease terms of 6mo - 12 mo at a time, after 1 mo trial period. Leasee responsible for farrier, boarding, and emergency/unforeseen veterinary expenses. I will continue to pay for routine veterinary, teeth floating, and SmartPaks as well as providing blankets, wraps, etc. I am in no rush and will only lease him to the right person in the right situation.
