Talented TB below value -OWNERS HEALTH FORCES SALE: 15.3hh, 9 year old bay TB with white stripe on face, off the track for several years.

Tahi is a beautifully put together NZ bred TB, very quiet, easy to handle and do anything with, tie up, show, float (self loads), worm, hendra vaccinated, teeth up to date. Easy to handle in every way on ground and under saddle. Handled by youngsters, teenagers and adults with limited horse experience.

Easy to keep weight on, low maintenance horse. Can leave in the paddock for a few weeks and pull out and he's just as good as the last ride. He has beautiful paces and a really nice consistent canter. He is pretty enough for the show horse ring, has competed in dressage and eventing.

Super Jump, just gets better with work each time. Attended cross country clinics with Kevin McNab, Brett Cantle, Sandra Trott and Show Jumping with Charlotte Price (Kelecyn) and David Finch. NEVER stopped at a jump, will jump what ever you put in front of him, whether show jump or cross country. He is very bold, brave and genuine horse, with a soft mouth and easy to control. Trained xc over intro and prelim fences, show jumping at 1.3m at home with confident teenager. His jump gets better the higher he goes. I just can't take him further to campaign at higher levels.

Tahi moves of the leg beautifully, can do shoulder ins and out, haunches in and out and started lateral work but needs more work to fully establish. I am unable to continue his training due to my health and will be very sad to see him go.

He is very trainable and an honest horse. Tahi loves to please, likes to snuggle and has had 8 weeks work in total with professional trainers Charlotte Price from Kelecyn (go http://youyu.be/4v7lJfG0g4l) and Sandra Trott (https://www.facebook.com/kate.laughton.73) who campaigned him for dressage initially.

Only lightly campaigned due to work commitments and health issues. Soft mouth, ridden on flat in fat snaffle bit. Natural carriage and flowing paces.

This horse does not buck or bolt, but can get horse shy (as green for events) and has reared at an event when a rider rode her horse directly into him and scared him. Because of this, he is not suitable for a beginner unless for pleasure riding, and suited for a competent rider if going to competition home. Would make lovely pony club or inter school mount or suit adult wanting a competitive horse.

In competition condition, just needs more fitness training as due to my health he has had 3 weeks off then only light work.

He can be ridden out alone on a trail, ride on lose rein, and used to noisy show environments which do not phase him. Does not get hot at all. I have chosen to sell him quickly rather than have him out of work sitting in my paddock.

Due to my health, I am selling him well below his true worth, he is easily worth way more than the asking price. $4000 Neg
