Morris was adopted by us from the RSPCA as a 2YO having been tethered and starved. We backed him at home as a 4YO have have used him mainly for hacking. He lives out with our other horses on our farm. He is easy to do, barefoot, travels well and loves his stable but not kept in on a regular basis. He has some bare skin from his early neglect so need some sunscreen or a light rug on sunny days. He can be grumpy around food but not hay or people. He is fit and well, teeth and jabs up to date. He is handsome!

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Morris would appreciate a confident rider and loves to hack, never fizzy on open ground - he has been ridden on Exmoor for the last four years. He walks into the trailer. He does not need to be ridden daily, 2-3 times a week is fine, as he is calm and sensible. He can be willfull on the ground and around food so needs a confident handler, 16+ or an adult, He has been ridden by both male and female teenagers. He needs a good rug and shelter in winter/rain. He has just had two weeks schooling by a prof. rider
