Santana King aka Louie
8year old OTT tb
16’1 solid and square. Bay no white
I have owned Louie for 3 years, in that time he has proven to be a kind, willing and snuggly! Louie and I have done everything from beach, river, bush rides in company and alone to various SJ and dressage clinics, ARC and ODEs. He definitely has more woah than go. Louie was bought from Team Equistar and had a further 6 weeks training with Primrose Court Stud to really cement his basics. I have competed E grade in ODEs and trained SJ to about 65cm, this is certainly due to my own confidence level and not louies capabilities, he is ready to keep learning! Louie stands happily at the float with his hay for prep and competitions.
Louie is an absolute dude on trail rides. nothing phases him with exposure to dogs, motorbikes, roads, chickens, kangaroos and trains. He rarely looks at sj fill or xc jumps and take very little reassurance to tackle anything scary.
Louie does have a little separation anxiety which can make him tense in warm up arenas or when his paddock mates are taken away but I’ve found this easily managed. I regularly ride alone, away from others or have others ride away from me with no problems. He is good to float, shoe and medicate. He currently has all 4 feet shod but would not need this in softer ground. He is a good doer and loves his food, he is currently only fed hay. He is respectful of fences, does not windsuck and has had his teeth, drench and tetanus/strangles done June this year.
I am hoping louie will go to someone who will continue riding and enjoying him as he has lots to give! I am asking $2500 but home is more important than price!
Happy to help with transport and open to trials 🙂
