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

Dallas - SOLD

SOLD September 2017

Congratulations to Kaye & Trevor from the Riverland

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.


Dreamer - Available

Dreamer "Bold Dreamer NZ"

Approx 17hh 10 yo gelding.    DOB: 3/11/2006.    

Retired February 2013

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.

Dreamer has become apart of the furniture at Chapel Lodge and will only be sold to an exceptional home.

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

Spelled and ready to start his ridden career. Great with other horses and easy to handle.

Jake is pigeon toed. A nice solid boy.
