Tommy is a cheeky cob, Who is looking for an experienced home and rider. I have owned him since he was 3, broke him in myself with ease, but due to me having a child early on in his career, he missed out on some of his basic training as a youngster. We did achieve some placing's in prelim dressage and were just starting jumping lessons and clinics. He loves to jump.He is lovely to hack out in company, snaffle mouth, nice forward going and never bolted, but has always had a little excitement buck in him.

    He is looking for an experienced home as a project pony. He is totally wasted and bored with me. After a bad saddle fitting, a year ago, he developed an occasional bucking bronco habit. I have completely loss my nerve with him and I am unable to ride him throw it. I have had a very experienced good friend of mine ride him who didn't think he was that bad and managed to sort him out within 20 mins.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Saddle, back and teeth all checked after the bad saddle fitting. He has had laminitis in the past, so you would have to be careful that he did not have too much or rich grass, but would be fine in full time work.He currently lives out 24/7 but is happy to be stabled too. His back and feet would probably be exempt now due to the bucking & laminitis problems in the past. Otherwise never lame, ill or sorry.
