Meet Tilda

Tilda is a very sweet old girl and loves attention. Without fail she is always the first to the gate when you arrive for feed time, and loves nothing more than some carrots and a good neck scratch. She is good to handle, easy to catch and trim and travels well. She gets on well with other horses in a paddock situation.

Very little is known about her background. Tilda (Gain Time) was retired from racing in 2002. When the current owner acquired her she was suffering from serious neglect and possible abuse. She had to be brought back to health before any riding was considered. Since then Tilda has been saddled and lunged but not ridden. She is being sold as a companion horse at this stage, but in a knowledgeable home may be rideable with training.

Tilda is regularly wormed and trimmed. She is up to date with her vaccinations.
