15.2 Bay Gelding. 6 years old - Rescued from the Bull Ring In France

Trained and raced in France and showing little on the track this 5 year old was going to be sent to the Bull ring to tease and train the bulls for the so called spectacle of bull fighting.  Brought back to England by a young lady who took pity on his pending plight.

We gave him a few weeks to settle as he clearly struggled to interact with other horses, and had no idea how much fun rolling in mud could be.  His return to ridden work was uneventful although a quiet rider was needed as being heavy handed with him would have resulted in a display of misunderstanding. 

Billy liked a routine and could get a little unsettled if things were changed quickly. 


He has now been rehomed and happily living on Exmoor.
