Sugargum Uabba Poddrick
Poddi is a solid boy, rising 7yo Connemara x grey 14.3 1/2hh gelding. Poddi is very quiet, cute, friendly and loves life. Always the first horse in the ute window to say hello, when we drive out to the horse paddock. He has perfect conformation and is a very strong little horse, which would carry anyone. He has 3 even steady paces, and is a really nice soul to have around. He was broken in as a 3yo and has been ridden around the farm by his teenage owner, mainly for trail riding and jumping the logs around the river banks. Poddrick is very much an easy going, more whoa than go, horse, but will still get up and go if the rider asks. Surplus to his breeder’s requirements the difficult decision has been made to reduce the herd after struggling through the drought, in addition his owner attends boarding school, which restricts time spent with the horses. With the younger ones coming along we seem to dedicate our time to them, rather than the older ones who are now ready for much more. We know that Pod will be very sort after, due to his confirmation, perfect size, temperament, age and way of going. He is happy to go on the float at any stage, usually beats us in, he likes attention and hates to miss out on activities. Over the years we have taken him into the lake 20 mins away and given the horses a swim on hot summer days. Pod has never been an issue in any way, boats, skiers, jet skis even low flying pelicans not a drama, he just loves the water. Tie him up on the float and swim the other horses and he will stand there very patiently, until his next turn. We are hoping that Pod will find a loving home and that he will be appreciated for what he is. Pod has just come into full time work and is going super under saddle. He has also attend a few PC rallies but not on a regular basis. He had not been ridden for 6 months and the worst thing he did was stop before he was asked, he is as honest as the day. Though his education is basic at this stage, he does pick up things quickly and would benefit from continued riding/education now, he is a good age to get into some serious work under him. Recently used for lessons with a keen, confident 12yo beginner and he took bouncy hands and flappy legs all in his stride. Currently in work with friends to be sold. He would suit a mum wanting to go riding with the kids or to attend PC or ARC. Maybe a teen wanting a nice quiet project to bring along. But in saying that “horses for courses” his new owner might just want to plod around, just enjoying the sunshine, he would be very happy with that too. This is a very safe, kind and fun little horse. Farrier, drenching, chiro and teeth all up to date. Asking $4500.
