Greg is approx 16hh, 5 year old TB gelding.
He raced as Port Bowler and had 6 very unsuccessful race starts before retiring with me in May of 2017.
I have had every intention of working him sooner but it hasn’t happened clearly!
He has been in full work for about a month now and is a real cruisey dude.
He is understandably very green but he is so willing. He has the basic stop, go, turn down pat as well as the correct canter leads.
Defiantly more woah than go, as can be seen in videos on my YouTube. You can also see that he is working in a pokey, nose out frame with no collection so if he were to go to a dressage home, this would need work!
While he develops muscle strength and fitness, we have mainly been hacking him out and using him as a leader/babysitter for the other young/green/naughty horses. Some of which are older than him!!
He has just begun jumping and has done a course at 50cm at jump club.
He has had 3 outings now and loads on the the float and truck perfectly. He is happy to stand in a yard or tied up for hours (so long as there is food!)
He is proving to be so safe and reliable out around the farm with dogs, truck, bikes etc whilst the other horses are leaping about.
He leads off the quad bike and is fed up out of a gator so used to motor noises. Doesn’t care about flappy tarps/bags/balls being thrown off him (there is another good YouTube video of this!!)
He is currently barefoot with strong dark feet and he is good to trim. He is also a good doer.
His only vice is that he can occasionally be grumpy around food when you are rugging him, if you are just throwing food over the fence at him, he is perfectly respectful. He is at the bottom of the pecking order in a shared paddock so when he is in his own paddock and gets fed, he is protective over his food and he thinks you might take it away from him whilst taking his rug on/off. He just puts his ears back and threatens. If you are aware of this issue when going in his paddock there is no problems but for this reason, he will not be sold to an inexperienced home.
I believe Greg will be perfectly suited to a low level adult riding club home or a trail riding home.
$1,500 located in Howlong NSW near Albury/Wodonga.
He will remain in full work and continue to get taken along to outings until he finds his new person. He has been sitting in my paddock for so long that I have grown quite fond of him so I will be fussy about where he goes.
Please no time wasters or inexperienced homes. He is a young TB, as quiet as he is, he needs a knowledgeable home to continue his education.
