For sale …. My yummy 4yo Snap Decision nearly 16.1 now, very lovely laid back attitude. Beautifully trainable. By A’seduction out of Don Herr bloodlines mare. I must sell him as we have the Pacific Highway coming through our place. 0402078882
Here are some pictures of our place taken from our front veranda, what a scene, just a bit of a reminder that we will not be here on this beautiful place for too much longer as the RMS is going to buy our place and we will have to move and set up again somewhere else.
The one of A Snap Decision is with Carissa riding him just the other day. Snap has got his Father’s laid back attitude, and yet is showing so much potential, he will be such a Star!!
I will be offering him and A Heaven Sent for sale soon. Both are super horses and have fantastic attributes to train and compete through to Grand Prix. Pretty soon I will do some video of both and they will be on the market. This is mainly due to the RMS taking our place for the new highway from Sydney to Brisbane.
I think that I might even have to give the Sydney CDI a miss this year due to the many different pressures we are going to endure. Maybe some good will come out of this!!
This is our last young boy by our grand Prix stallion A’Seduction. He is out of a Trakehner from the F-line. He is rising 3yo and about 15.3 hands now, which will make him a peeerfect height for competition, I think he will make around 16.2.
Secret is his name, and he has been under saddle and showed us that he has a very sensible head on his shoulders and therefore training him should be a fun journey.
He is for sale at the present moment for $15,000.00. I would like to do some more training on him over the Xmas break, maybe just some in hand work and a bit of lunging, then next year back into riding him. He is very sweet and a very nice mover, in his trot he seems to like to give the medium trot, you know “show off” stuff. J
If you think you might be interested in this fellow, please feel free to give me a call on 040207 888 2.
We also are training our racehorse over the summer break. I have been doing a lot of beach riding on him, he really enjoys this. It’s quite funny as the bush track we ride out along has got plenty of entertainment, a kinda like de-sensitising of the racehorse. We have seen wallabies, a big grey kangaroo, a huge goanna, snakes of course – it would’nt be an Australian Bush without, and last few weeks we have had black cockatoos flying over us, about 15 of them, and then on the beach we have seen the eagles. Well I guess I get to see them not so much Hef, our racehorse, since he is looking at the sand and surf….. We have even had 2 hornets fly past us, going extremely fast.
We are racing this Saturday, fingers crossed!!!!!! He should be the most trained and quietist race horse heading out onto the track, nothing should scare him!!!!
How good is this new boy going!! He had his first ever day out yesterday and was brilliantly behaved and went oh so well!! One can see he is still green at this dressage game, but he kept it all together and went super. He is now well on his way towards a successful life as an equestrian horse. Here he is ridden by young rider, Poppy Ellis-Southwell.
‘Russian Lights’ price has gone to $4,750. Potential all over him.
Below is the link to his Preliminary 1.3 test
And here is the link to a snippet of him warming up before the test… can hear Peter chatting in the background to one of his friends about football of all things.
Villa is still for sale for $2,500. He is a steel at this price. He is just improving all the time. He has a lovely big rhythmical stride and is a forward thinking boy!!!! Someone will have some Major fun with Villa!!!!
Villa suits a young rider. He has very nice action, 3 active under paces, and is suited for dressage and hacking.
He is the Beach Boy extrodinaire, he loves riding on the beach, and loves to eat pears!!
Villa will without a doubt turn into a super looking show hack. Villa has been ridden by me for most of his work on the racetrack and of course his beach rides. I ride him in a dressage saddle and snaffle, even on the track. He has a nice snaffle mouth and has been cared for and spoilt and looked after for the last 3 1/2 years by us. He loves life.
I believe Villa will make someone a very reliable horse (and a pretty one too).
