Meet Dazzle

Thoroughbred Gelding 16.2hh - 14yrs

Dazzle is a beautiful horse with excellent conformation. He was badly abused during the breaking in process, however in spite of this he's a willing, inquisitive and curious horse. He has a quiet nature and is not easily spooked. Dazzle hasn't been ridden for several years so is suited to an experienced rider only. After re-starting or sending him to a trainer he would enjoy long rides, rounding up sheep or cattle, or would make a lovely dressage horse. He's highly intelligent and a talented jumper who can think his way out of problems. Dazzle is tractable, easy to train and responds well to the principles of natural horsemanship; however he's a big, strong horse who requires an experienced and thoughtful person to be his rider/trainer. He's previously been ridden by a 15yr old girl, and due to his history of abuse Dazzle's unsuitable to be ridden by men. To get the best out of this wonderful horse you must be a calm and confident rider who is gentle and caring. Dazzle loves to jump and has exceptional natural jumping ability, he'd also be suited to ARC, showjumping and one day events.

Dazzle was adopted on 25 March 2014 after 1.3 years in foster care
