Are you looking for a horse that the whole family can ride? Meet Romeo… Romeo is a 3 ½ year Standardbred gelding who hasn’t raced but is broken to harness. Romeo is a 14 3/4hh brown gelding with a beautiful personality and super quiet nature. Romeo was placed with me (to prevent him going to the Meat Works) and has proven himself to be very unflappable as he had never been on a float before or even been off the training facility. Due to his very quiet nature after only two weeks with me, I decided to take Romeo to the Redcliffe Show in the 3 Years and Under Led Standardbred Class. Romeo was awarded 2nd place in this class and handled all the crowds, rides and activity, not to mention plaiting and primping like he had been doing this for years. Since then Romeo has been broken to saddle and been to pony club where he has participated in a muster and competed in a trail day where he exceeded all our expectations by walking over carpets, picking up blocks, going through a ‘road hazard’ block and walking under a ‘fly door’ screen with streamers (something which many horses did not manage to complete with far greater experience). Romeo is frequently used on trail rides and is ridden unassisted by children from around 7 years old right through to Beginner Adults. Romeo is a little lazy but is quite comfortable leading on the trail ride, being in the middle or back of the group. As you would expect with a standardbred, Romeo is eager to learn and will canter when asked. Romeo enjoys the pats, cuddles and attention from everyone which will make him a wonderful horse for a family who are looking for a horse to love and be part of their family. Due to changed circumstances, Romeo is regrettably for sale only to the very best of homes. Ph: 041 252 4707 for futher information.
