UPDATE: Rex has been rehomed to a fabulous experienced family with mum and three daughters all horsey. He will be partnered with the youngest daughter post-retraining and I am sure they will be perfect together. He got lots lots of cuddles when they met.

Rex is a rising 5-year-old, bay thoroughbred. He is approximately 16.1hh (best guess) and has a fine build. I expect he will chunk out more now he has stopped racing. He was bred and trained by a husband and wife who have a small team of horses. I have been told he is a sweet, quiet guy. He is lightly raced with only 10 starts and is sound. I met him for the first time the day after he arrived at the spelling place and he was already very settled and easy to handle. This trainer transports his horses in an angle float. I am told he is good for the farrier and vet. He has no known vices. His trackwork rider has said "He'd be pretty chill having a crack at anything...... he's been to the beach. He is not a spooky or nasty horse. He is happy to be out on his own or working with another horse. He galloped well at home but just didn't enjoy racing,"

He looks like he would make a lovely all-rounder and needs a small to medium rider. He has Encosta De Lago lines and they generally make pretty good jumpers, You will need to be experienced with retraining Off the Track Thoroughbreds and ideally be someone I know or you can be vouched for by someone I know. Like all Off the Track Thoroughbreds, he is not a beginner horse but may be suitable as a second or third horse for an older child once retrained. A vet check is welcome if you wish to organise one.

I am happy to answer any questions and if I don't know the answer I can ask.

If you are interested in Rex please fill out an Online EOI Form. If you have completed a form in the last 6 months just let me know you are interested.
