Come and meet him and you will instantly fall in love!!!
Registered thoroughbred, Underage, but answers to Major. Looking for a loving home as a pet/ companion and trail/ hobby horse. Could possibly make a competitive mount in the future.
Located in Crows Nest, QLD.
Major is a stunning, 16.2 hh 2001 gelding. He is by the amazing Mister Kwila, out of a mare named Miss Minor (by Gist (USA)). He is a real sweetheart, loves to be patted and cuddled, and is extremely gentle and easy to handle. Loves kisses on his nose. He ties well, stands during grooming and tacking, and is good for the farrier and dentist. Had corrective trims and shoeing by top farriers in the area, and is now going barefoot.
Although he is technically a brown, he turns a lovely shade of black when rugged and groomed constantly, and he always has a natural shine. He is currently in paddock condition.
He has attended Pony Club rallies and has competed in dressage, showjumping and eventing with his last owner. Schooled on the flat regulary since I have had him, as well as trail riding, which he enjoys. He would do well in led thoroughbred classes. Is also easy to lunge, and free lunges over jumps. Shows lots of promise in all disciplines. He is very calm and would be no trouble when surrounded by showday chaos.
He is very easy to catch,worm, float, handle. Recently had teeth floated. Up to date on worming. Can be ridden in a snaffle. He is also very good in the pasture, and is well socialized with other horses - he loves their company and is never aggressive. He can be led around the pasture by just placing your hand under his chin.
Had an injury in his left fore prior to my owning him, which he is still recovering from. This sometimes causes a slight limp that is noticable in the trot and canter. Hopefully he will fully recover with time and light excercise. His new owner needs to be understanding to his condition and work at his pace. It is because of this lameness that he is offered cheap - If it werent for his limp he would make an amazing competitor.
Vet checks are welcome at buyers expense.
