Tommy (Uniek) is a 16 year old Dutch Warmblood gelding by Indoctro. Tommy was purchased by his last owner in 2010 for her daughter to compete at Show jumping.
“He was very laid back to handle, but completely stressed out under saddle. He had been permanently strapped up with a market harborough or draw reins and just lurched around in a very manic manner. Despite having passed a 5 star vetting he was clearly a horse who was very uncomfortable.”
After having treatment for his bad back, a new well fitted saddle and gentle lunging and re-schooling he started to make progress but unfortunately, after a full body scan it was discovered that Tommy had ‘Kissing spine’ and ‘suspensory ligament damage.’
Tommy is now happily retired at ARC, he is a sweet boy who loves to be around people and enjoys being with his herd. He has a very funny character and likes to play around.
