Heartbreaking decision to sell my amazing Don (Chavez).
By Gonski out of Fox Dragon, Don is a stunning bay 16.3hh (unofficial) Thoroughbred gelding of 8 years. I have owned him for 2 years, and in this time have completely fallen in love with him. The only reason I am selling is because I cannot afford to keep three horses in this drought, and my other boy is retired and my mare is my original allrounder.
Don has AMAZING movement, more like that of a warmblood than a thoroughbred. His trot is super lifted and ground-covering, and his canter is a rocking horse dream. Can jump beautifully as well, however needs more work in this area as can be a bit scared of jumps.
On the ground, Don is a massive sucker for cuddles and could happily stand being groomed all day. Never an issue to prep for shows, and great to shoe, float, and wash. Loves water!
I have shown Don lightly since owning him and retraining him from a retired racehorse. He won his first ever class and has since had a very successful career in the show ring. Recently this was put on hold due to me breaking my ankle, so he is currently out of work. I will be bringing him back into work over the next few months, and so his price will increase to reflect this.
Very easy-going and willing to try, this boy makes training a breeze. Even my rookie boyfriend has ridden him out along the road and Don took absolute care of him like a true gentleman.
Please serious enquiries only, as this is very upsetting for me because I love him so much. Needless to say, prospective homes will be vetted heavily for suitability.
This boy has unlimited potential with the right owner.

$10,000 firm. Will increase as brought back into peak fitness.
