Bobby - Available

Bobby "True Bobby"

Approx 15.2hh 16yo gelding

DOB: 1/9/2000

Retired December 2009

Bobby is a dream to ride under saddle, however has issues settling into new environments, which makes him no good out on trail rides unless you are a confident rider wishing to deal with his "away from home" issues. However in the arena at home has an amazing work ethic.

Currently out of work in fat paddock condition.

Can be grumpy around food, can be dominant in the paddock

$500 current condition

DOB: 17/10/2004

Retired August 2013

A solid little boy. Caesar has been ridden a handful of times. Experienced rider only. Not to be used for hard work as he has bled in the past. He will make an awesome trail plodder.

Casper - **SOLD**

SOLD April 2017
Congratulations Kelly
Casper "S5130099"
Approx 15.3hh 3yo gelding
DOB: 2/11/2013
This cheeky boy is sure to win everyone's heart. He is just a big kid. First to greet you in the paddock and then steal your hat or take another horse for a walk if you're not paying attention to their rope. Full of personality and charisma this boy is going to be a heart stealer. With a little bit of bling and exceptional conformation, he will be well suited to the show ring or any other discipline.
As a 3yo, he is currently too young to educate to saddle, but he learns quickly and his ground education will be soon to commence.

Dallas - Available

Dallas "Ohoka Dallas NZ"

Approx. 15.2hh 12yo gelding

DOB: 17/10/2004

Retired April 2015 won an incredible $368,843

Dallas is an incredibly sweet natured boy. Gets along well with other horses and loves attention and being fussed over.

He has been started under saddle. He is forward and sensitive but also a responsive boy, so will do well with a balanced rider.

Dallas has windgalls on his front fetlocks, so not suited for a show home, but will ideally be suited to pleasure riding . He raced with his windgalls with no issues. But with his gentle nature I think this will be exactly the retirement he deserves.

Congratulations Jaqui from Pinery

Doofus "Captains Fury"

Approx 15.2hh  9yo gelding

DOB: 18/11/2007

This gorgeous boy is nothing more than a gentle giant. A nosy boy, he loves to be exactly where you are and know exactly what you're doing.

Dreamer has had a few rides now, however he is still a little nervous and is pacing a little, canter to die for.

Will make a great allrounder. Sure to excel in any discipline. Great with other horses.

Hilly - Available

Hilly "Uphill Battle"
Approx 15.2gg 11yo gelding
DOB: 14/11/2005
Retired June 2016

Hilly or as he has become more affectionally known as "old man", is a true gentleman. Very easy to handle and gets along well with other horses.
Uneducated to saddle, ideally he would be well suited to a retirement home or companion home as his race owner believes he will be very "hot" under saddle as he was like this in the cart.
Yet he is such a very easy going boy and with four small white socks he could potentially do very well in the show ring with the right education.
Exceptional home only for this special boy. POA

For a 2yo this boy is just amazing. Very easy to handle and do anything with. Gets along very well with other horses.

This stunning little mare will be sure to excel in the right hands. Nimble has been out to paddock for the last 12 months to mature and was bought back into work by her race owners in June , however she no longer has the "race" in her, so her owners have retired her to CL.

Sox - Available

Sox "Think Red"
Approx 15hh 7yo mare
DOB: 2/10/2009
Trialled only
After three years away, Sox has returned to us through no fault of her own on 8/1/17.
As her name suggests, Sox has four little white socks. A simply stunning mare. Show quality. Very easy to handle and do anything with, however she can be quite the little challenge under saddle. She can intimidate her rider for the first 5-10 mins approx of her ride with piggies and little squeals, after that she can be a wonderful ride.
We will be investigating further as to why Sox does what she does and start her on some gastric ulcer treatments.
For an experienced home only.
