Astro is 13hh 17yo Australian Riding Pony gelding. Don’t be fooled by his age, as he has plenty of up and go in him! Definitely more go than woah and is not a beginners pony. He is suited to a confident intermediate rider with an independent seat and steady hands. Possibly a 2nd to 3rd pony - not a 1st. He is registered and has papers to go with him. He is great to c/w/t/f.

Astro is educated in dressage and has competed up to elementary with his previous owners and can shoulder in, leg yield etc. however, whilst he has been with us he has not competed, but rather done lessons at the agistment.

He can jump and has previously done eventing, horse trials, Pc etc. Happy to provide link to videos of rallies and events he has been to. He is also broken to cart!

Unfortunately, we believe that Astro is a one person pony and prefers a rider that has a good sense of direction and leadership. Kids can ride him, however, they must be confident, have good steering and be the boss of him - otherwise he can be typical cheeky pony! With small adults, he seems to be perfectly well behaved and doesn’t try and pull the wool over their eyes!

He understands voice commands and will canter purely by just saying the words.

He will stand for as long as you want, to be washed/brushed etc. However he can be pushy on the ground and girthy.

Astro doesn’t have separation anxiety and is happy to be alone or with friends and is usually the bottom of the pecking order. Gets along with other horses and is a dream to float!

He is barefoot and up to date with teeth/vax/worm. He is fantastic with farm machinery, dogs, kids running around etc.

Astro does have a sway back, but he has been vetted and is cleared to ride, however, we restrict him to kids or small adults under 50kg - I will not sell him to someone over this threshold! (I’m 5” & 47kgs, so I can tell) As I want to do right by him.

He is a good doer and requires minimal feeding if there is an abundance of grass, I only feed a small amount of hard feed to get supplements in.

He is currently in work about 3 times a week. Trial rides are welcome, but please no beginners or nervous nellies as he knows and will take advantage of this (nothing nasty, just clever pony stuff, can go into a more detail if you’re the right rider/handler for him).

Astro is located in Yarra Valley VIC.

His next home is of utmost importance to us, as we are devastated he hasn’t clicked with us and only want what’s best for him and his future.

We believe he would be best suited to a competition home with a confident and capable rider - whether child or small adult.

Or perhaps just a pleasure rider who knows how to use the buttons he has. I will not sell sight unseen!

Lots of footage available. 

Asking $5k slightly Neg.
