Value the babies please...

First my little mare, Miss Chloe. 14.1hh dressage pony, 20yo. She has competed successfully in Preliminary level thru EFA and Pony club scoring an average of 60%. She has completed 2 Novice level Pony Club tests, scoring 61.25 and 55.42%. Has competed in showjumping (1m max) as well doing very well. Has schooled 1.2m.
Has completed 1 ode at intro level going clear in both xc and jumping and done a xc schooling day taking various Novice and one star obsticles (the course at Toowoomba showgrounds if anyone knows it). She is now purely a dressage horse.

She is also extremly sweet, anyone can handle her. We have had a 5yo cantring her around a round yard jumping 40 cm on her. She has also taught many kids t jump (she never runs out or refuses, I can free lunge her over 80cm - a and in a 1/4 acre paddock, not a jumping lane)








(that was on a lunge line, at 95cm)

Same day, warm up for the larger one.

Free lunge

She is also trained to ground tie, follow behind me when asked, or stay put if I mush dismount in a large open area.

Sounds like a fancy little mare but because of her age, if you were to sell her I don't know you would be able to ask much.

Number two, the baby.
Grandeur Ice Magic, 4yo registered arabian pony gelding. Green broken, mouthed and backed by me, and then ridden by a stockman to him going. Will soon be going off to be educated by Richard Prew, who has won a national cutting championship among other prizes, and also breaks for the top TB trainers in Sydney and Melbourne (they fly him all the way from the Toowoomba area in QLD).
Has been show in halter once, took out first and went into the champion gelding of show (all the winning geldings of all breeds), and was in the top 3 (of 9).
Has an adorable temperment, a real sweetheart, and incredibly intelligent, fast learner. Loves to be with people and is very easy to handle from the ground (still has baby moments tho).
He is a dressage prospect, a stunning mover, good size for an arab at 15.1hh (still growing). He is the great grandson of German import and Australian champion Amir El Shaklan, who is regarded as "The Australian Legend" due to his show record and his influence on the Arabian breed. Amirs sire is still considered the most successful show and breeding stallion in Europe ( by arabian followers). He is also great grandson of Aussie bred Simeon Shai (EXP USA). Shai is the 1991 triple crown winner (same year champion at the US Nats, Canadian Nats, and Scottsdale show), and later that year was crowned World Champion stallion. (First stallion ever to take out all 4 titles)

I don't do critique but I love your Miss Chloe. I like a dapple gray horse. I think she is a good age, been there done that, do anything for you which is pricless to me.
Your Arabian is stunning, I can see why he took first in his halter show. Looks like you kinda like him too

Shai is awsome. Such an amazing boy.


Yes I love Nudgie, he is such a sweet boy. He will come up to you in the pasture and stretch his neck out for kisses. And he loves being scratched along the neck, his head dips and he twists his neck towards you, and gets the most adorable look in his eyes!!

Chloe's a sweetheart. Today I was picking up the horse poo and she was following me everywhere, as soon as I stopped walking shed come to me and stand beside me, close enough that her cheek would be touching my arm. But she wouldnt do andything, shed just come up til she was touching me and then stand there and close her eyes. She's so sweet.
