Great Trail Riding gelding.12 year old, 15 hh : Dino has a delightful personality, he is a very good “doer” and currently bare-foot trimmed. He lives on his own or with other horses, with whom he is always friendly, not a bossy sort. Excellent to float and catch. He loves people and the neighbours children feed him carrots.
A great trail riding horse, and loves the bush, doesn’t worry about Kangaroos, and goes willingly through creeks, opens gates etc. Also good after a spell. He will stand while I watch a bird or consult a map. He is very willing to please but needs a competent rider as he is forward going.
With his previous owner he did stockwork and trail riding. She also did small jumps and basic schooling, jumped logs in the bush etc. I just ride in the bush and up the mountain trails. He is a breeze to float on my own, wash off after the ride, or tie up while I have a picnic. He canters along the trails at the speed I chose to go and is easy to manage by an experienced rider.
He is not fully reliable on his own on roads not helped by my being nervous of traffic. He can be quite keen in open paddocks or if other horses go on ahead. He can very occasionally spook, not nasty but quite quick. He has led young horses past many spooky things and is a terrific lead horse, he has never been difficult to get past anything in anyway. He is good in small groups, I have never tried him in a big group. He also has an old scar on his knee, from before I owned, him which hasn’t caused any problems.
He is strongly built, with a broad chest and keeps condition extremely well. I have never needed to lunge him even after a 3 month break.
Only for sale as sadly I’ve been told (again) by my doctors to give it up. I have had him for 6 years, and will be very sorry to see him go but this delightful horse would love to go for rides again (we had three terrific rides at Easter) or keep other horses company. Video available.
$990 Negotiable, and includes rugs, to competent rider and to approved, experienced, caring home only.
