Teddy - Available

Teddy "Awesum Teddy NZ"

Approx 15.2hh 8yo gelding

DOB: 23/11/2009

Retired March 2018

Teddy is a lovely natured boy who likes nothing more than to please. Teddy has been started under prior to coming to CL by his race trainers. He's come across from WA where they like to train their horses under saddle and teach them to gallop. Due to this he can be quite forward under saddle. However, as pretty as Teddy is, he will unfortunately not be suited to a show hack as he has some nerve damage in his mouth. This makes him very hard on your hands with a bit in. Ideally Teddy is going to be suited to a trail plod home where he can be ridden bitless.
