Competitive showjumper or eventer – Future Juniors prospect
Muzzleburst or “Muzzy” is a 15.2hh, 9 year old thoroughbred gelding with a fantastic brain, great work ethic and a huge amount of talent to go with it.
I have owned and had the pleasure of working with Muzzy since he came off the track in October 2020, where he quickly learnt the ways of show jumping. He has proved to be an incredibly safe, reliable and competitive horse who tries his heart out for his rider in every situation. I have taken him to a number of local ACT competitions and agricultural shows around regional NSW where he has jumped 1m classes clean and confidently, and has shown very clear potential as a serious show jumping prospect.
Muzzy has been just outside of the placings in the majority of the classes he has competed in, and recently won the Open 75cm class at Gundagai show at one of his first shows back for the 2022 season. He has exceptional balance, allowing him to turn quickly and be quick against the clock. His scope and ability combined with his balance leave me with no doubt that, with more miles, he will be a competitive 1.15m+ horse.
Muzzy has recently been ridden by a competent, petite, 13yo girl who he has responded to and looked after beautifully. At their first show together, he placed 7 th in the 75cm out of a large class of competitive juniors, also jumping a fantastic 90cm class. He is happy to take a miss and is incredibly bold, not blinking an eye when out on the cross country course. His flat work is coming along very nicely, relaxing into a beautiful soft frame, and he is very safe and sensible out on trails by himself or with other horses.
I knew Muzzy very closely throughout the majority of his racing career and can confirm that he has remained 100% sound with no injuries from this. Muzzy is easy to catch, shoe, and float and has no vices.
Having known and loved this horse for so many years, this is an incredibly hard sale. I had my heart set on keeping him forever, however I leave for the Northern Territory in April for the remainder of the year and would love to find him an incredible home before I leave. Not suitable for beginners. Will accept a 5 star home only.
More video available on request. Price is negotiable to the perfect home.
Located in Bywong, just outside of the ACT.
