Halo Shine is a striking 16hh 8yo Thoroughbred gelding retired sound off the track just over 2 years ago. He was acquired by my 15yo daughter who was a showjumper at the time as he showed natural ability over jumps. He started his re-training with her for the first 3 months until she gave up riding. I took over his training and he has been competing dressage with me ever since achieving percentages in the high 60's and low 70's with many first placings and championship wins. He is currently competing Preliminary but ready to move up to Novice. We have recently competed at the Qld State Championships in the Amateur Owner Rider class and placed in the top 10. Also competed at the National Amateur Owner Rider Championships where we also placed top 10. Shine is light on his feet, has a lovely active hind leg and 3 balanced paces with natural self carriage. Very easy to handle on the ground, good to c/s/f and been exposed to competition environments. He is taken out regularly for training, lessons and clinics. He is a very energetic horse with lots of stamina which would make an ideal Eventing mount for a confident teenager or young adult wanting to bring on their new superstar. Shine also has a presence about him that stands out in a crowd and would make a nice show horse. He has the fundamentals established and is ready to find his new owner to have some fun with him. Shine is a sweet, sensitive boy who can get a little nervy occasionally but has no dirt in him, just needs to be ridden forward. He requires an experienced, calm rider who can continue with his training to help him reach his full potential. He is up to date with teeth, tetanus/strangles, has been Hendra vaccinated previously but not current. This is a very hard sale and will be sold to an approved home only. $10,500.00. Located Sunshine Coast, Qld.
