Rare opportunity to purchase a once in a lifetime horse.
Breed: Foundation Waler
Age: 10 yo
Rupert was a part of the 2014 Equitana Waler Legacy program where he was captured, trained by Damien Judd and shown alongside other Walers in their chosen discipline, Rupert’s being dressage. There are numerous videos of his training on YouTube, search “Equitana Rupert”.
Extremely easy to float, wash, rug, catch and do all the basics with. Also very respectful of fences.
Jump on bareback with no halter on, after a couple months off and he’ll happily do as you ask. He’s got a huge personality to match his stunning looks. Rupert is a hearty horse that doesn’t require much.
Rupert has been mainly used in The Australian Light Horse, doing parades, re-enactments and endurance rides. He handles traffic, towns and other animals very well however isn’t a fan of large crowds and the constant clapping & cheering. The high pressure and testing environment of parades is generally tolerated, however at times becomes overwhelming for him and we have had to take that into account for his future in the troop. We have come to the extremely difficult decision to find him a new home, where he can enjoy a job that is more matched to his strengths. He is an intelligent, affectionate and well-rounded horse that is the perfect trail, endurance or general pleasure horse to have some fun on.
Rupert loves to jump, explore new places and has been started on the barrel pattern. He’s the perfect all-rounder for someone that has the time to dedicate to him.
Rupert is a very smart and switched on horse that excels under consistent work. There is no doubt that he could be used in any chosen discipline, we just unfortunately do not have the time he deserves to further his training and exposure to new surroundings, so we are looking for a confident leader who can.
He’s a dominant horse, who requires a confident leader, therefore no beginners. Selling to an approved home only, that preferably has other horses.
