A few months after posting my original listing this wonderful boy has done nothing but improve and will continue to do so in the right hands. My priority for him is the right home and I would rather have no sale than the wrong one, please give me a call if you would like to talk about him further but I will try to give as much info as I can below... Small but mighty, this little horse has a big future ahead. The kids named him Frangipani so he may be looking for a new name as well as a new home. At 4 years old and approx 14.3hh (not officially measured) but solid build and with a heart as big as the moon, "Franj" has taken on everything I have thrown at him like a mature horse. He has done minimal jumping due to young age but shown great promise and improvement in the training days Ive taken him to and easily jumping 60-70cm courses. We spent a weekend away to the Central Coast involving a 5 hour float trip, 3 different locations, arena work and a day out at sporting to expose him to kids, fast horses, cars, bikes and many other obstacles. All of this he handled beautifully even though most of it was things being seen for the first time. He is currently working as a lead pony for racehorses being broken in and copes with everything they throw at him (including sprinklers coming on while working yesterday!!) He is a forward moving horse with a flashy action, eye catching looks and a very affectionate personality after minimal handling as a younger horse. He is good to catch, groom, rug, trim feet (doesn't need shoeing), float and in general be around. Having now done some more "miles" I feel he would suit a less experienced rider with confidence as if you are confident enough to ask him for something he will try his best to do whatever you ask. In saying that please no beginners as although he has been very well behaved for beginner riders who have tried him I feel he deserves someone who can continue to help him improve. Regularly wormed and feet done, Franj holds his weight well on hay/grass and has all the makings to become a nice all rounder and competition type horse. He is a fast and willing learner and has been one of my more enjoyable "project ponies" to work with. Videos available, vet checks welcome, good home a priority.
