Spike is a lovely gelding who will suit a variety of disciplines. He was bred to play polocrosse but is too tall for us. Would make a good intermediate or mens polocrosse horse.
His dam is a unregistered Australian Stock Horse. Her sire was Finur who has sired some excellent polocrosse horses, one being Berragoon Percussion – 3rd time winner of Overall Champ Polocrosse Horse at Nationals.
His sire is a horse bred for polocrosse and performance sports. There is a full description of him in the “stallions” section of Cavaletti.
He is broken, self loads in float, travelled in truck, feet handled, and been out and about a bit. Had a couple of preparations. Has been stick and balled for polocrosse and polo. Starting to pop over little jumps willingly. Has basics of walk, trot, canter, sidepass. Can be ridden in group or out on his own. He needs an experienced rider only as he is young and sometimes a bit cold backed. Spike is a gentle and willing horse, who I am sure will a lovely horse when mature. He is friendly and kind with a good attitude. His full brother is showing significant talent in jumping, so I believe he would jump well.
You can see more pictures of him and his siblings on our facebook page “Springbrook Stock Horses”.
