Very sweet 4 year old gelding, 15.2hh – Chivalry (Freddie on the yard) came home with me last July after racing just twice in June last year. He is a very affectionate boy with a very trainable brain and has been a lot of fun to bring on.
Given he was just 3, I started with lots of groundwork before lots of hacking over the winter and then progressing in the arena with him.
He has lovely big paces for a small horse, and will excel in any sphere. He loves a little jump and is very neat and careful with poles. I took him to our riding club summer camp this year and he was brilliant!
We did a little introduction to XC, played over logs, with steps and water (he took a little persuading and a buddy to begin with in the water) and he took it all in his stride. He loads well on a trailer or box and travels quietly.
We ride on national trust estate land and he’s never silly in open spaces. Of course he needs a rider who is confident, particularly with youngsters as he will test you.
Will hack alone but feeds off his rider and needs firm, consistent aids. He needs routine and boundaries as he can be pretty cheeky – typical youngster really!
Freddie is great with dogs, children, farm machinery and the traffic he has seen – our drive to the yard is next to the M40 and he isn’t phased by the noise or seeing that.
In the right hands this boy will go really far, so a 5* home is required. He does crib but this is easily managed with a cribbing collar and we’ve never had any issues.
