Ex-racehorse retired off the track Oct 2018

Tigger was bought at the latter end of 2019 with the intention of retraining him having come off of the racetrack at 7 years old. He was turned away for a few months straight of the track and rhen was quietly produced over the summer months.

Tigger has spent the winter hunting with the Blackmore Vale hunt and has been an absolute pleasure. He has impeccable manners, snaffle mouth, easy ride, doesn't pull and stands quietly on the buckle end. He has jumped all obstacles big or small – rails, ditches, hedges, gates, and wire to name a few. He lacked confidence in his jumping but this grew with time and will continue to improve with the more that he does.

He has been lightly schooled and jumps well over coloured poles, he has plenty of scope and shows good technique.

Tigger was turned away for a couple of months after the season to bulk back up and now looks a quality stamp of a horse who could easy show well in ROR classes. He has clean limbs and good conformation – no lame days or previous injuries. Was retired from the track sound – he was just a rubbish racehorse unfortunately!

Tigger is an absolute dream to have around the yard – you could trust your granny to look after him. Super quiet temperament, easy to do, clip/shoe/catch/box/teeth/vet all 100%. He has done plenty of hacking in company and leads or goes behind without bother; often used to babysit younger horses or ride and lead. He is bomb proof with any kind of traffic on the road. I have worked on his hacking on his own which is improving but he just lacks confidence and can spin when unsure of something so he would not be suited to a novice rider or one lacking confidence. Once he trusts you and you build a partnership then he is a dream and thoroughly deserves a 5 star home.

This horse owes me nothing and I will be sad to see him go but unfortunately with a number of younger horses to produce I just don't have time to do him justice and use him as much as I should. He deserves to go on to a home where he will be produced to his full potential and give someone lots of fun. He loves his work and has a lovely trainable attitude.
