Meet Ben

Ben is a sweet natured horse who?s easy to worm, float, trim and rug. He was retired from racing in 2008 and is broken to saddle but green. Out of work currently, Ben requires a competent rider with a sound knowledge of dressage principles to continue his education. Someone with solid breaking / retraining / young horse education is ideal. Ben?s suffered abuse in the past and has a very soft disposition, he therefore needs an owner who is fair, kind and consistent. Ben is a smart, athletic horse who will excel with one on one care and consistent training.

Ben was adopted on 26 September 2012 after 1.5 years in foster care
