Missy is a beautiful dark bay thoroughbred with a delightfully cheeky and inquisitive nature. Standing approx. 15.1- 15.2 hands high, she was quite depressed when she arrived, and was very dull in the coat and eye. At eight years of age, she was hesitant and unsure. It didn't appear that she was familiar with the experience of daily hands on attention and interaction from attentive humans. But Missy quickly regained her confidence and spark! She now greets you at the paddock gate, gallops up to see you at a whistle and has decided that humans are the best thing out! She has beautiful confirmation and movement, and demonstrated athletic ability! She is very relaxed in and around the stable environment, but just as happy out in a paddock with a mate to play with. Delightfully natured, she is super quick to learn, easy to handle and has the right smarts and intelligence to go places! On arrival, Missy did exhibit windsucking behavior, though this has modified now to the occasional episode. And whilst Missy was ridden by a teenager at her previous agistment facility, she has clearly demonstrated a lot more spark since acquiring more condition and would probably need an experienced rider who could develop her potential.
Oni is an 8y.o. Arab Gelding standing 14.3hh who has been in long term care with a Project Hope member but has now returned to us to find another long term home. Oni is a little flighty by nature, and will need a patient approach when catching and handling. Oni appears to have had some natural horsemanship training and will continue to need an experienced handler. Oni shows some potential for endurance work, has just been trimmed, wormed and had the dentist out. Oni is ready to go straight to another long term Project Hope carer so please contact committee member Anne Batey on 5428 9112 or 0438 437 700 for more information or to arrange a visit to Oni.
PHHWV Tiny .. update ..Nov 2013 ...NEARLY READY TO RIDE
Available for lease: January 2014
PHHW Tiny is a bay TB mare, 14.3hh, 6yo. After initial rescue and education, she was leased as a riding horse. This proved unsuitable as Tiny was unpredictable and could react suddenly to unexpected actions without regard for humans. One assessor then said that she wanted to please but wasn’t sure what was wanted, and reacted (aggressively or with flight) when she became unsure.
From last March until now Tiny has been learning groundwork from Rhonda, living in a herd of 3 horses. Rhonda speaks highly now of Tiny’s cooperation and mood ... she is a pleasure to be around, and obedient.
On 15 November AEBC( Equine Behavioural Centre Clonbinane) will take Tiny to reassess riding and educate her where required. Rhonda will ride Tiny in December to establish the new learning. What Tiny has learned has to continue to be reinforced. The lessee will need to follow on with steps Tiny has learnt.
PHHWV Tiny could be leased in January 2014. If you are interested please get in touch now to follow the next few week
