Punkin is very cheeky and is used for pony rides with young children.  He has been with us for several years and likes to have a free run around the property to find the greenest grass . He is semi-retired, but loves to come back to work for trail rides and lessons.

Chocci has been with us for years and has helped many children learn to ride. She is a bit bossy in the paddock with the other horses but is very kind to the children on her back. She likes to go fast and she LOVES pony games (as you can see in the picture below). She is easy going for the young children, but fast paced for the older kids. At her peak she was runner up Junior Show Jumper of the Year. Can you see the map of Tasmania on her forehead?

 

Name: Chester

Sex: Gelding

Age: 25

Breed: Quarter Horse Cross

Colour: Skewbald

Chester used to be a pony club horse. We wanted to buy him after we saw his (then) owner sitting underneath him, between his legs, while it was raining. He is the perfect school horse. He is very patient and is a great teacher. The children love him and there is stiff competition as to who gets to ride him, as he is so popular. He is an ideal beginners horse for all ages.  He is also lots of fun for the more experienced rider.

Aslan is our Australian Warmblood stallion by Holsteiner sire Falkland Victory. Sharon bought Alsan as a 3 month old foal as a back up horse for her Olympic training squad at the time. She kept him as a colt due to his flamboyant movement. He started at the very first Parelli colt starting course in Australia as a 2 year old. Sharon then turned him out for 18 months and restarted him at the of 3.5. In 1996  at the age of 5 he qualified for the Nationals after only 2 competitions and won at his level.

Aslan has produced 50+ foals, many of which have been gone on to be very successful competition horses up to and including FEI level dressage and competitive showjumping. Recently Alsan’s Gold was named Champion Hack at the Royal Darwin Show.
