Opps; forgot about all that stuff. :P Age;
11 History; Joe is a 15.3h TB gelding,
He was bred in NSW in Australia to Our Mazicay and Cariboo Lady, he raced in a couple of races, but failed as a racehorse, but that's all I really no since he was a rescue.
Joe has a very trainable mind, and this makes it easy to teach ground manners. He stands all day at the float, but when in a small yard [racing yard] he does pace at the gate. He has very good ground manners, and only gets pushy when he stands around to long, and he gets cinchy.
Joe has been trained in English such as jumping, dressage, hacking and mounted games. Although we have had a go at barrel racing, and he seemed to enjoy that.
Joe does have a slight roach back, but we were told by the chiro that this hasn't effected his overal performance. Joe does have some back problem, and this was caused when my Pop had him and he followed another horse that bolted through a wire fence.
In the saddle Joe is very willing, but often has trouble flexing to the left side of the arena, but we are working on this. He jumps just about everything, and has a big trot and a nice flowing canter.
My location is Western Australia.
I have competed in a couple of shows with Joe this year coming home with two 4ths, 2 seconds and a 3rd. I competed in my first offical EFA show, and we got clear rounds, but didn't place. He can also jump up to 1.05m and is currently competeing at 40 -70cm
