UPDATE: Mardi has been rehomed. Once he has grown up a bit more, he will be assisting with Equine Assisted Therapy and doing some trail riding.
Mardi is a 3-year-old, bay thoroughbred gelding that does not want to race. He is approximately 16/hh16.1hh, sound, and is a very cuddly boy. It was really hard to get photos as all he wanted was to be with me. Mardi is good with other horses and was raised at a stud which keeps their horses naturally in a paddock. He is still a baby so will need some time to develop and will also need help to learn some new skills, all he knows, is how to be a racehorse. Having said that he has a great foundation as he was started professionally by the team at Shane Rose Eventing. He has strong bones, a solid body, and a medium-sized back so would be suitable for a variety of riders. I feel he would be nice as an all-rounder or for adult riding club, working equitation, trail riding, farm work, low-level eventing, low-level showjumping, companion/nanny, or EAL horse. He is not suitable as a high-level competition horse as he was recently diagnosed as a roarer. This will not preclude him from most other things. He is considered a straightforward horse in the stable, easy to ride but can get a bit keen at a gallop. He has only had 1 start and 1 trial.
One of his trackwork riders described him as "very sweet and loving on the ground...very sensible and level-headed under saddle". She said he needs some time to grow.
He needs a person experienced at transitioning an off-the-track racehorse, someone who can manage a change in diet and overall lifestyle for him. He will need some time to just BE for a while then a little help with his body awareness and balance. You will be someone I know or can be vouched for by someone I know. Unless I know you extremely well, I would like you to meet him in person. He is located in Kembla Grange.
He is a gentle boy who is still finding his way, his personality is yet to fully form. A young, sound horse waiting for your guidance, he has Lohnro, Octagonal lines, and is by new stallion Winning Rupert (who I used to treat). What more could you want? Oh yes, to top it off, he is a really nice horse just to hang out with. If you are looking for a special EAL horse, this could be your guy.
