Description:
Robert is a very friendly horse, he is loved by everyone. I have owned him for about a year and a half now, but only been riding him for about 4 months if you put everything together. I loaned him when I was about 12, as you can imagine, with him being 18.2 and me being 12, he was very big for me! One night, he got me off and it was very nasty. I completely lost my confidence and really hurt myself, so he went back to his owners. A few years later, I was still really in love with him, I found out he was being neglected, so mum being mum she said I could have him. Now we have been through a hell of a lot with Big bob, firstly, we couldn't get on him as he had a roach back, which was causing him a lot of pain (which we didn't know about until he had a scan.) I had just plucked up my courage to get back on him but everytime I did I kept on falling off, really horrible ones too. But I now realise it was not his fault in anyway. So we got that sorted, but because at his previous owners, he was in pain so he wouldnt stand still when they were mounting, and because he didnt, he got beaten up with the whip. He used to be really awful, even though he wasnt in pain he used to buck and bronk everytime you got on, and you couldnt touch him for at least 10 mins with your legs, but we hired a horse whisperer and it made such a difference, but to this day you cannot get on him straight away, or with a whip. Then just as we were really getting going on him, he damaged his collateral ligament in his foot, and even after this was treated, he was on and off lame for at least 3 months, which was very very stressful. So we left him, just to eat and do whatever he pleases, and just like magic, one night we trotted him up after bringing him in, and he was sound!! And to this day right now (touch wood) he has been sound! His dad was ranked number 1 in dressage in england, and Bob is a very well schooled horse. He is perfect in every way, he jumps, really knows his dressage, and hacks out like a superstar. I now hack him out alone, and jump him. He has regained all my trust and I cant believe such a perfect horse has been under my nose all the time and I havent known it. But he really is perfect, and he is so big which makes you feel extra special ;-) plus he follows me everywhere I go, and knows lots of tricks.

    Brilliant my mares sire is Broadstone Westcountry

    Your horses bloodline goes right back to the Darley Arabian, in the year 1700, on his Sires side !
    Do know the Dams name ? Does Bob have a posh name on his Passport ?
    It makes you wonder how such special horses end up like ours did.
    Sorry to ask so may questions
