Orion is a brown 3 year old Connemara Sporthorse, approximately 14.3hh. He is by the stunning buckskin roan Connemara stallion Clairvale Constellation out of a Hanovarian (Carbine) x TB Mare.
He has had five weeks professional education with J’Lacy Park Equestrian Services for a light start under saddle. Orion is now on spell and will require an experienced home to resume and further his ridden education.
With the most beautiful soft nature, even temperament and lovely movement, Orion has the potential to become a sensational child or adult’s performance mount in a number of different disciplines. He has excellent manners, floats perfectly, remains quiet in different environments and is a pleasure to handle in every way. Orion is up-to-date with teeth, hooves, worming and vaccinations and is fed a simple low-sugar diet.
Orion is very quiet and sensible, and on the rare occasion he is spooked, returns to normal programming immediately. He has been handled by children and is universally adored by all who meet him. Under saddle he is more woah than go and has no issues going through water (he loves it!) or obstacles. He has been ridden out on trails in a group and is happy to lead or follow. His groundwork is excellent and he has been occasionally lunged over poles and small jumps.
While Orion is very chill, he is also quite a sensitive horse who tunes into the energy and body language of his rider/handler. For this reason, he will not suit either very nervous or really gung-ho riders at this stage in his
education. I have no doubt he will grow into a bombproof unicorn with
consistent education and exposure.
I will only sell Orion to an approved, competent home where I know he will loved as much as he is here. Orion is located in Barragup (Mandurah) and is available for $6,500 (including some gear).
