Turning 5 in December (DOB 21.12.2016), Kev was bred, broken in and trained by us (Three Leaf Stud). Unofficially measured at 15.2hh, he is a truly delightful young horse who has shown himself to be incredibly versatile, talented and willing across a range of disciplines. While I’d love to keep him for myself – and will do if the right home with the right budget fails to come along – I still have 3 young warmbloods sitting in their paddocks eating too much, and Kev deserves to be the focus of someone’s attention.

Kev has really impressed me with his aptitude for the English disciplines and I think he would be an amazing horse for a teenager who wants to have a crack at everything and be competitive; equally, he would appreciate an adult owner who wants a fun horse to build a long relationship with. He’s currently jumping around 70cm+ with heaps of scope. Naturally careful and balanced with great instincts in front of a fence, Kev has proven to be extremely forgiving of my mistakes even though he’s still quite green, and he thinks that learning to jump is one of the best things that’s ever happened in his life.

In September Kev competed in his first (online) dressage competition, placing 4 th out of 17 with 70.179% in the EA Prelim 1B. Roger was extremely positive about Kevin’s ability and suitability for dressage, and I think the video demonstrates Kevin’s lovely willingness, movement and try. He’s now training all the novice movements plus some elementary work, and would have to be one of the most comfortable young horses I’ve ever sat on, and has a lovely soft mouth.

While Kev has mainly been focusing on his dressage and jumping over the last 6 months, he’s actually a (super fancy, international frozen semen) quarter horse who was bred for the cowhorse disciplines, and that was the focus of his initial training. I competed on him in February this year in a reined cowhorse class and while I am fairly useless when it comes to cowhorse disciplines, we finished in the top half of our rookies class and he looked after me. He has all the necessary foundations to campdraft and is super cowy, fast and athletic. He’s a very useful work horse on our property, great to muster on and is also ridden by me to “turn back” in the cutting pen at least once or twice a week. He’s heaps of fun to work a cow on, which I still do with him from time to time! Kev is also good to ride-and-lead, either as the ridden or led horse, and has had plenty of big days and wet saddle cloths doing farm work. He’s not been wrapped in cotton wool or treated like a precious snowflake, as a result he’s a well-rounded horse with good manners.

Kev thrives on variety and loves getting out of the arena for a ride. He’s the kind of horse that meets you at the gate, always in a good mood and ready to work. He’s a pleasure to own and handle, being a low maintenance good doer with hard black feet (barefoot, has previously been shod in front during the drought), plus he loads and travels well on both floats and trucks. He loves being groomed and fussed over, and can be paddocked alone or with others. He’s always been sound and the only date he’s ever had with the vet was when he was gelded!

Kev has no dirt in him and is not a hot, overly reactive horse, but he’s an enthusiastic, “life be in it” kind of guy. He won’t suit someone who’s looking for a “bombproof” horse that never puts a hoof out of line, because he’s a young horse and sometimes, “horses gonna horse”. Most of the time he is riding-school-horse-quiet, but in new environments he is more forward moving at first. I have no doubt that with more outings he will become very quiet. He would best suit someone who will share and nurture his sense of fun, and doesn’t mind a horse to occasionally have a playful moment. I’ve never felt unsafe on him and no-one has ever fallen off him. He’s had the occasional ride by a teenager and he was great for them. He really is a very kind and genuine horse who is extremely easy to get along with; riding him is often the highlight of my day and I genuinely believe that he will become someone’s horse of a lifetime.

Kev is a purebred quarter horse, rego number is Q-95109. He is by the American stallion Highlightcat (High Brow Cat/Grays Starlight) LTE $135,863 US, and is out of Clover Twin Kam (Bar Doc Hickory/Clover Kamali). Clover Kamali won the first Australian NCHA Cutting Futurity, ridden by Rafe’s mum Gail.

Further video footage is available and visits/test rides/vet checks are welcome.
