12yr old 14.1hh
Registered:- Palomino and Quarterhorse
Bred in the purple to work cows and he is a very smart, quick, cowy horse. He is as close to bombproof as you can get with stockmans and obstacle challenges,our 4 year old has taken him around challenges and completed everything ,including whip cracking.
He competed in Battle on the Bidgee this year,scoring highly in the drywork, obstacle, cattle cutout and whipcrack with our 14yr old.always scores a 10 for the gate!! Most of these type of horses are great allrounders but not many can go out and win Champion Show hunter on the same day. Roco is also very successful in the show ring,they have won many awards including junior highpoint and 3rd horse of the year amongst many other awards for the past four years with NSW palomino Society, the State show for four years and Sydney Royal this year.
They have competed successfully at interschool competitions, pony club, dressage ,combined training and horse trials. Roco is quite talented at dressage and is solid in his lateral movements with very smooth half passes and leg yeild,he is working on flying changes and starting to show a few steps of piaffe which is quite naturally easy with his powerful hinquarters,he has established rollbacks,sliding stops and sidepasses.
The list could go on for ages but he is part of the family and a huge character,he is always in trouble for finding a way to steal food and he can be a bit temperamental so wherever we go everyone knows and loves Roco,he is near on perfect colour of a 2dollar coin and turns heads wherever he goes,this is an extremely hard sale as daughter has outgrown him and he is the centre of attention horse and is not too happy about not being number one,two and three!!
Roco can be clipped,wormed,shod or pretty much anything that gets him attention, without even a halter on,he self loads on a float,is good in traffic, rides at shows and even the fireworks at Sydney royal didn't bother him,he is great in crowds. He would suit an intermediate rider and upwards or lady rider wanting to further his dressage as he can be stubborn and he is a very smart horse that learns very quickly and likes to do as little work as possible and get lots of pats!!
A Million dollars cant replace this horse and how much he means to us!! Price is negotiable but home is not and him and the kids will tell us who he wants to go to! Located at Jindera,just outside of Albury.
Genuine enquiries only please as the kids will be struggling big time when this family decision hits reality.
