HAPPA Galaxy is a 5yr old 14hh Coloured Cob Gelding who is looking for a Forever Home as a companion, could you offer Galaxy, or one of our horses here at the Centre, a home?
Galaxy is a rather handsome cute cheeky boy with a big personality, he is bright and bubbly with a laid back attitude to life in general. He has excellent manners and is good to do in all ways, he is totally uncomplicated easy to handle from the ground, good for the farrier, and dentist, and he has no health issues or ailments.
He would make a superb companion for any kind of horse. He has no malice in him towards humans or equines, he happily mixes with both mares and geldings and can be turned out 24/7 or he is happy to come in after a few hours. He will fit most routines and be an asset to any yard.
Galaxy has been broken to ride and went through the process fine to begin with, further down the line he developed a back issues which was resolved with careful management. He was under physio and he had a made to measure bespoke saddle. Galaxy had the perfect criteria to make a lovely ridding pony. However, after several weeks we knew something wasn’t quite right when he developed a couple of little quirks that could no longer be ignored and needed to be questioned. It was obvious that the issues were related to his back and that he just wasn’t happy being ridden.
After investigation and consultation with a variety of professionals including the Vets, sadly we didn’t find a diagnosis but in the best interest of Galaxy a decision was made to end his ridden career and change him to a companion. For Health & Safety reasons, and for Galaxy’s welfare, it is important that he finds a Forever Home as a pet or companion pony and must not be ridden in the future.
