‘Rory’, 6yo WBxTB, 16.3hh. Genunie horse with big future!

All rounder, eventing, Working Equitation, showjumping, trail riding! Rory is a quiet, gentle and willing horse who has participated in many activities.

He is an excellent jumper, currently schooling 80cm with ease and plenty of scope to go bigger. He has free schooled over 1.2m with ease. He is careful, soft and willing into jumps and is smart enough to get over them from a bad spot. Cross country he is brave and completes the course safely. He has a lovely stride between fences and is easy to pull up again.

He has competed in Working Equitation and came home with a ribbon in every class on his first outing. He is great at the obstacles and knows his job, completing the courses beautifully.

Rory has done plenty of trail rides with other horses and rides out nicely in big open paddocks. He does gates and is brave enough to go where you need. He has worked with cattle and has a good head for it.

Rory has completed several natural horsemanship clinics from the time he was weaned and thrives well on it. He has lovely ground work and excellent manners and is super quiet, calm and relaxed during ground work. I started him Bitless (simple sidepull/lightrider) and maintained that for a couple years before transitioning to a bit, he now goes lovely in a snaffle but could just as easily be ridden Bitless.

His dressage is coming along nicely and he is starting to work in a soft frame to develop self carriage. He does basic laterals and has three even rhythmic paces. Rory travels well in arena work and has good natural balance and a soft and pliable feel. He has an excellent stretch and can be ridden on a loose rein too. Though his dressage is further behind than some horses his age I have spent the time rounding him out as a genuine nice horse rather than focusing on one thing. Due to this, it wouldn’t take much to get him placing in dressage competitions too.

His dam (TB) is an exceptional jumper and comes from jumping lines. His sire is a stunning WB by Regardez Moi.

Rory has dabbled in basically everything and could do it all, now he needs a rider to take him to the top in one chosen field. He is fully sound and guenuinely unspoilt.
Rory is genuinely quiet to handle, stands well for the farrier, ties great, is easy to worm, rug, clip, etc, and I often get comments from vets, dentists, farriers that they wish all horse were like him. He floats like a dream and has done several long trips.
He is a super sweet and affectionate horse who loves spending time with humans and horses. He likes human cuddles and treats and also is good with dogs and other livestock.
Though Rory can do a lot and is an seriously awesome horse, he is still learning foundations and needs an educated rider who has loads of patience, is well balanced and forgiving and who works with natural horsemanship (Buck Brannaman style). Rory has absolutely no nasty in him but may get a bit exited when in a new environment and so needs a confident and calm rider to support him though this.
His new rider must meet my standards of riding and will be proven knowledgeable, confident, competent, calm, soft and patient. Rory is not for beginners.
I will not sell him to anyone who uses training shortcuts, training gadgets or is only interested in winning. Rory is too good to be spoiled by any of that. You must also prove your commitment to the horses welfare first including full care and appropriately kind training.
A lease will commence first and option to buy will be made available if you and Rory are working well together. Rory must initially stay on his current agistment while on lease. Negotiations for change of location may take place at later date.
Very sad and regretful decision due to other commitments so Rory will only go to the best of people.

All his gear can be sold with him as I will no longer be riding.

Lease cost is the price of agistment - $105 p/w and other services such as the farrier (Rory has always been without shoes), worming, etc are additional to that cost.
