Due to a tiny human arriving in late May I am unable to give my beautiful fur baby the love and attention he deserves and it’s such a waste for this talented little dude!
Mickey Mouse is a Bay 15.2hh Stockhorse x Thoroughbred Gelding. 16yo (I’ve had him since he was 7), retired from Polocrosse (he taught me the game and we played for 5+ seasons, looked after me the entire time, could turn on a dime this little pony, very agile!), moved into adult riders (not suitable for polocrosse anymore) and took to entry-level ARC like a duck to water for 2 years – he was thoroughly enjoying these new challenges and turned heads every class.
Has a heart of gold and will give you his all, but he needs an experienced rider. He needs someone that will remain calm, assertive, confident, patient and motivated. Once you’ve established that bond, he really comes out of his shell. He’s a TOTAL sweetpea, everyone who has met him says he’s a total sweetheart but he relies on his rider for encouragement and guidance as he can be a little bit on the nervous side when exposed to new things. Would prefer he carries on with ARC & Horsemanship (and I think with the right person he would thrive at Equitation. This was my goal before I fell pregnant) as this has been good for his conditioning, confidence and keeps his brain ticking. Can’t be used for jumping due to leg injury a few years back, but trot polls and cavalletti’s are fine and encouraged (great for his back).
All gear will be provided (including saddles, bits, bridles, grooming gear, etc if required) and use of my 2 Horse Angle Load float if you need. Will discuss this in further detail upon application.
He is located on a beautiful property in Bullsbrook and lives with a herd of 2 Fresians and a thoroughbred. I am the only agister on this property and he has moved with this agister 4 times and been with her for 7 years. She knows him inside out, back to front and has NAILED his diet and condition and shares a very special bond with her. The property has an arena for use.
Taking applications/expressions of interest now. I’m due to pop at the end of May and would love to start the handover process while I can still waddle 🙂
Cheese and wine ‘enthusiasts’ favourable but not required 😉
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with further questions.
