Brownie is a lovely handsome horse who has had a successful 2* eventing career but now needs a happy retirement home. He hates going in the school, but is good to hack, he is not a clingly horse and fine mixed in with others. Brownie is the farriers 5star horse! He has never hunted or been on a beach, he is forward going so needs regular work which I cannot provide. He will be ok to do small hunter trials as long as he is happy and sound enough and hacks with the odd jump on.
