HENDRICKS

Breed: Trotter
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Bright Bay
Height: 15.2hh (still growing)
D.O.B 31 March 2020

Hendricks was born at the Sanctuary to Ginny.  Ginny herself stands at only 14.3hh and Hendricks is already closing in on the 16hh mark at just 20 months old so we’re guessing his dad was pretty tall and he’s going to be a big lad himself.

He is good to handle in general but would really benefit from some consistent one to one handling.  He has recently returned from spending the summer living out as a companion to another youngster and this has led to him being a bit hit and miss to catch although this will soon improve as the horses are coming in at night and being turned out for the day during the winter months.  He is wary of new things but is good with the farrier and to be groomed and led.

At present he is far too young to commence ridden training but will benefit immensely from ground work, walks in hand and lots of reassurance with new experiences.  This handsome boy has a LOT to give to his potential fosterer and will go far in the right hands.  Someone with previous experience with sensitive youngsters would be ideal for him.  Someone who is in no rush to ride and will work at Hendricks’s pace.

If you would like to find out more or think you could give this handsome young lad the home he deserves then we ask that you complete a foster application form in the first instance.
