Chestnut Blank Canvas - lease or buy


Seeking Expressions Of Interest for this horse has potential to get National Level with the right/experienced rider. Can buy or Free 18 - 24 month lease with option to buy at a reduced price for the education he will have received.

This is my best bud, Comet. I’m a veteran and this 4yr old OTTB gelding has helped my mental health massively, my own therapy horse, so I’m looking for best home for him, it’s the least he deserves.

Experienced eventing/competing and home with educating experience only and no one under the age of 16 will be considered.

I started with establishing a lot of ground work with him (moving his feet, gaining respect, yielding, flexion etc. as well as working on the lunge (with and without Pessoa and saddle), to build muscle, getting coming forward and under, more balanced, collection, flexion etc and then under saddle worked predominantly on halt/walk/trot transitions.

I also took him out to the local state forest for a 1-1/2 rides. His temperament is amazing at home. He has not been exposed to a show / pc environment other than once on a recent trial and was quite agitated, at times, but as a first outing in a long time it’s was to be expected.

He first up to go to trial home but then wouldn’t (their float was very short and low and he had only been in trucks prior). A breaker/trainer came and had him in within 15mins so I don’t anticipate it to be an ongoing problem.

Under saddle at PC he did quite well, a lot of compliments, he did a couple of random bucks but otherwise for his first time did really well in the Class. Trial was with a 12yr old girl and he was just far too green for her.

Photos are from the trial
And also earlier this year (that’s my partner lungeing him, who has never lunges a horse in his life before that day).
There are also video footage which I can email.

With his great bloodlines and potential I seek an “experienced rider with large/green horses” and preferably a horse/eventing home for him, someone who’d like to teach him and take him very far, in eventing or show jumping or whatever suits him best and makes him happiest.

One thing I have felt guilty about since buying him, is knowing that he would thrive on getting out to do a discipline ... with me he was just a companion/best bud and hack that I wanted to have til his last day.

I ride him alone through the bush, walk, trot, canter and galloping he has semi trailer trucks and trail bikes pop up at times and has been great with those, I’ve jumped him over some homemade XC jumps, up to app 60cm and as said, have done lots of lunge work and arena work ,mainly bending, yielding, rounding, collecting and extending in walk and trot).

His temperament is incredible and he does have a little cheek. He can be pushy on ground if you let him so this is where the next person has to be strong and experienced enough to know not to let him. He soon learns that you are boss. But he also gives the most amazing cuddles, he is quirky and can stand very quietly accepting as many hugs and kisses and you have to give him. If he was a person I could see him being a laid back, Byron bay kind of guy haha.

I definitely was not a confident rider when I got him , I did grow up riding fearlessly, as a teenager and did state level
Trials but then moved out, being In the army, travelling, kids etc I just never had the means to have my own horse. I hadn’t had a horse/ridden for 20yrs, yet He has been an absolute gentleman, I’ve ridden him with no fear and he has been fantastic for my anxiety and health.

I want such a beautiful long term home for him, not someone who’s going plan to train him up and sell him on. I would love to watch an amazing journey for him from now to national level!

I also would love the opportunity to have first dibs at getting him back, if he is ever out back up for sale.... or otherwise have my details passed on to following owner... .even If I end up with him at retirement to give him an amazing lasts years full of carrots and cuddles, I’d be so happy with that.

I can include /negotiate all his gear /rugs also if required.

Basic details...

App height 16.1hh. Sound. Passed Vet check with the trial home. Basic training.

Just had annual vet check and up to date with vaccine etc.
