Say hello to Abbot!

Abbot is a 4 year old, 12.2hh, blue roan, cob gelding who is ready to find a home as a hacking pony.

**Abbot has a maximum rider weight limit of 8 stone/ 50kg**

With dashing good looks and a sweet, gentle personality to match, Abbot is ready to find a home where he will have plenty of opportunity to go on adventures, hacking around the countryside with his new best friend. Best suited to a happy-hacking home with the potential to do a little more in future with further education, Abbot is still green with limited life experiences so would benefit from an experienced perfect partner who can continue his education in a kind and sympathetic manner. Abbot is good to do in all ways, is always eager to please and always gives 110% of anything asked; you can’t help but fall in love with him when you see him approaching.

Abbot is currently in work 4-5 days a week; a mixture of hacking, lunging, long-lining and pole work. He has been out on a trip to our second site and took it all in his stride, really enjoying the new adventure presented to him.

Abbot lives out 24/7 with access to a shelter and is happy to stable when needed.

Rugs: Only if clipped and in work.

Abbot can live with both mares and geldings. He is passive within the group and never causes any issues.

No hard feed given and restricted grazing to appropriately manage his weight. If grazing becomes too sparse he is supplemented with low calorie hay.

Farrier: Barefoot and trimmed 6-8 weekly. He is good for the farrier.

Dentist: Sedated as standard Bransby Horses procedure.
