I have a 15 year old, 16.1hh Irish Hunter cross gelding that I am looking to sell. I am looking for a professional to get him fit and sell him on behalf.

I fell off him in December and broke vertebrae in my neck and back, and so am unable to ride. I don't know the reason for the accident as I have no memory of it, but I have had him for 5 years and he is a well-behaved, calm horse. My best guess is that a wild pig or deer jumped out of the bush and frightened him.

He was a dressage horse for a few years and when I bought him he was being trained by Greg Johnson for a career in show jumping (his one quirk is jumping gates and fences). He can jump very well but at the higher levels he was dropping rails so wasn't sold as a show jumper. He is a great all-rounder.

Do you have any recommendations for a good person to get him fit and sell him. He's currently in Upper Hutt, near Wellington, but I can send him anywhere in the North Island.

There are plenty of professional riders who offer this type of service.
I would recommend someone like Donna Smith Eventing or Ngatamahine Equestrian

Confirmed horse addict.

Any reason why you don't want to send him back to Greg? he and Dianna trade as Chester Farm www.chesterfarm.co.nz/ they also sell on behalf from time to time. sorry I thought I read Greg Jamieson, but you say Greg Johnson... Greg Jamieson runs Chester Farm.

We sent my Daughter's ''no kick, bite or buck'' advertised mare to them a few years ago after daughter was chucked off 3 times in a row and suffered a broken collarbone (supposed to be a grade 3 pony club type). She went to Dr Morris the equestrian Doctor for a scan to check her ovaries were ok too.

In the meanwhile I watch ''cheaper'' trainers nearby run round chasing horses with plastic bags and tying things onto tails,or letting silly 15 yos lunge the horse until its near collapsing.

For my money I would be using chester farm again.
