It's with great sadness that we are having to advertise Cody on the RoR website on behalf of his syndicate. He has been an absolute super star and everyone here will miss him immensely. Although 12 years old (13 in May) 'Good Old Cody' didn't start racing until late - so he has relatively low mileage.
Unfortunately, for the past couple of months he has not been able to withstand intensive training on the gallops. Charlie (trainer) is sure he's sound enough to go on to a dressage, showing, riding club home or possibly even a low level eventing home - but his soundness is being tested by the pressure of his current training, hence the decision to retire him from racing. He has had time off racing for a tendon injury in the past, but this fully healed and he raced through the whole of last season with no issues and even a couple of wins.
Cody is easy to do in all ways, a quick learner, a good do-er (puts weight easily when he's on his holidays), easy to clip, shoe, box etc and we're sure he would pick up his new job quickly. He is probably not a complete novice's ride. Please note: we are looking for Cody's forever home and will be vetting prospective new owners. It's very important to us that he goes to a decent home.
