It is with great sadness that we put our beloved Ollie up for sale, due to absouletly no fault of his own we simply just do not have the time in a day to train him.
We bought ollie in 2016 as an off the track hoping to turn him into an eventer, which is what we believe he will excel in. He went his first year with us learning the basics, holding himself in a nice frame and going out in the bush, unfortunatley that had to stop as I had a fall and broke my back. No fault of his own, I was riding at the buckle and had my feet out of the stirrups when he got a fright (the reason i broke my back is that im not as young as i used to be if you see what i mean). But since recovery i have been lunging him in the ring as I'm ordered by the docter to not fall of again. Since being on lunge, he has come down very nicely and has let my 14 year old daughter ride him with ease, although she is not expierenced enough to train him nor does she have the time with school & her own horse.
With that being said, he will need an older teen or adult that has handled OTTB's before and will know their excitable, oh-what's-that behaviour.Ollie always tries his hardest to please you and adores everyone around him, not a bad bone in this horse. He definently looks for reassurance in his rider, it is important you let him know he is okay. He feeds off of confidence, if you are unsure so is he. And just general love is important, let him know he is a good boy.
Ollie is an anxious windsucker, he does it when it is food time or when another horse leaves him, but has a collar that helps like a dream. He has seperation anxiety but calms down after a few times of realising they are coming back.
Will come with all his gear + summer rug and fly veil for $500, or for free with just himself.
Serious enquiries only, no beginners please. I want him to go to a home where he will be loved and taken to his fullest potential.
