This young 5 yr old thoroughbred gelding by ‘Planet Five’ is for sale.

Please note that the price is a figure that is negotiable. Willing to lease/trial for approximately 3 months or for an agreed period.

*** On the 30th of July this year, Rebel competed in Albany’s “Have a go Hack day”. It was his first casual competition. Won Champion Hack for the class that he was in, 30-40 yr old riders class. Also first in the Trot class and second in the “pairs”. 

**A friend of ours named Sian Nichols, rode Rebel for us. My partner and I are not experienced riders for the Equestrian Industry. So please forgive me if I am not able to answer your questions in that area. We can ask Sian to speak to you if you would like another opinion.

On the 11th of August, Sian and I took Rebel to Izzafield Riding School for the Ladies Lessons. He was with 4 other horses. He did mainly the basics and went over a couple of little jumps. (More so trotted over them at first).  I do have some videos, that I can send by email.    

Below is some history on Rebel.

He was broken in and educated by my partner and I. We have owned him since he was 10 months old. 

‘Rebel’ has that “bling”.  He is registered Brown/black, with white markings on all four legs. Approximately 16hh.  

Rebel’s nature is superb, he does not bite nor kick. Loves attention. Very easy to ride, even after a long spell. He does not shy. Very athletic, always willing to be ridden where ever you please to go.

He is sound with good legs and feet. He does seem to have a bit of a breathing affirmity. We have not had him Scoped. The reason being that my partner and I have had experience with Racehorses having breathing issues that were still able to compete and perform well enough in their races. To give you an example on what speed Rebel could manage comfortably in track work, he was able to gallop 600 meters on a sand track and a grass track , anywhere between 36-38 seconds, depending on the condition of the surface. He was and still is a good worker. With a Cross over Nose-band, his breathing was less noticeable. Helps him to breathe through his nostrils more. He doesn’t have to have one on, but at least you know that he accepts it.

He does like his mates being around. He has very rarely been on his own, but he is okay for a little while if you need to take another horse out, he seems to know that you will be back.

He is use to being with other horses while in training and when spelling, yet he is fine when ridden on his own, he doesn’t have to work with another horse. He is a very complying horse.

Excellent to handle, loads onto any float whether it be straight or side load. Can handle long float journeys.

He behaves well for the Farrier (my partner Kevin is one) and having his teeth attended to, either by Kevin or a Horse Dentist if needing to have them done.  Loves to work. Enjoys being ridden on the beach and while wading he likes to play in the water. (He has not been to a beach where there is big waves crashing on the sand).

Lightly raced. Last start 02/03/17.

He is use to grazing with cattle and other horses in large paddocks, also sensible in a walk in walk out stable. 

I doubt you will find that Rebel is not your average “off the track thoroughbred”. 

We would be surprised if he was not what you were after. Rebel should give some individual or a family, enjoyment for many years. Hopefully a “forever home”.

If you think that Rebel could be the horse for you…and that you could help him to excel in his new disciple, please contact either Kevin 0411437429 or myself 0428423914 for more details. 

Please try not to send text or private messages. If preferred you can send an email to Kevin and I.  You could let us know a bit about yourself etc.                                       [email protected]

Thank you.
