On property free part-lease available for a lovely gelding located in picturesque Burekup (20 minutes from Bunbury). The owner has a new job so can’t work him enough. Suitable for someone that wants to do a bit of flatwork, some jumping, bush-riding, camp drafting etc. Major loves variety and is always keen to try anything! He is quite the character and is a loveable, funny horse.
He enjoys leading the pack when going out bush. so would suit a confident rider. Major is learning about staying soft and maintaining a consistent contact and is starting to stretch out and work softly. He can be a little cheeky but no nastiness what so ever—just a ‘pretend’ shy occasionally. When he is worked regularly the cheeky behaviour goes.
Has done some jumping over small jumps and loved it—would definitely enjoy doing that!
He is normally more whoa than go unless out bush. Has done some endurance. The owner is happy for him to be floated places for lessons, bush riding, and possibly even shows etc. Prefer him to be ridden 1-3x a week, and his owner will ride him another 1-2x. No upkeep costs; owner will pay for his agistment, feed and farrier. If you do any shows etc that is your cost. There is a grass arena to ride in and you can ride out around Burekup from the property too. There are people that will go out riding around the area with you too if interested, and a coach that normally coaches the owner is happy to be booked in for shared/private lessons on Major with whomever leases him.
I am not Major’s owner but I am the owner’s coach and am helping to find a suitable person to lease the lovely Major.
