Say hello to Buster!
Buster is ready to find a home as a happy hacker.
Buster is a very easy going gentleman who is looking for a perfect partner to enjoy hacks with a couple of times a week.
Happy to take it slow with a more novice rider, or step it up a little with someone more experienced, Buster is ready to experience the world with some pleasure rides/ beach rides and regular hacking with a perfect partner who will shower him in love as he adores affection and interaction with humans.
He has proven himself to be very brave and sensible in traffic both alone and in company and is the perfect gentleman on the ground 99.9% of the time, however he has been known to let his stomach lead the way and pull toward some grass if it looks especially tasty. He has never done this while ridden however.
Buster does not enjoy schooling and will nap at the gate, so we are looking for a perfect partner who will apprecaite this and not ask any schooling of him. While he will happily pop some logs while out on a hack, due to his age and lack of experience he should not be expected to do too much jumping.
