UPDATE: PARTON HAS BEEN REHOMED
Parton is a 3-year-old, unraced/un-trialled thoroughbred gelding by Your Song. He is bay with a small white star, a solid type with a short back and big arse. He is still a baby (in brain and body) and needs a confident rider to help retrain him. At approximately 16.2hh, he does not seem to like the racing life and the decision has been made to give him a non-racing home rather than persist. He definitely needs some help with his body awareness and would benefit from some individual love and attention. I think starting him again would be worth the time. His trackwork riders think he would make a competitive showjumper. I am sure he could do lots of other things as well but that was my first impression of him. I can also see him as a nice trail horse or allrounder. I would be surprised if he could cope with straight dressage. Would suit a professional or semi-professional showjumper, experienced amateur rider, or a retrainer. I have not treated him, I am told he got himself cast at some point, was sore, and had a break. Has come back into full work and appears sound. No vices I am aware of. He strikes me as a little shut down in his current environment and needs a quieter environment to figure out who he is. Given some downtime in a paddock or herd situation, I think he would be an amazing horse for someone.
You must be someone I know or know someone I know who can vouch for you, Vet check is welcomed if you want him for a specific purpose. I prefer people to come and meet the horse if possible so I can see you together. Located at Kembla Grange.
