It was really sad to see him go, but even harder for me to try and make him show jump when he is really genuinely so frightened of those scary coloured poles.
We weren't doing each other any good and I hate pushing such a genuine horse who has done so much for me. I took ages choosing the right home, and his new rider talks to him in German and feeds him lots of bananas! (His favourite!), so I'm sure he'll be very happy.
