Photo's of Evo's Training Progress.
 
Hi,
I haven't really stated on this forum how my big boy Evo went off for some training before Christmas... before he left he was only walking and trotting, starting to carry himself (he has natural carriage and would try when I ask him to just come into my hand a bit more)... and not much else really due to my ongoing knee injury.
Now, he canters up and down a hill on my mate's property like he's been doing it for years, has been to the beach, schools at the walk and trot consistently and is working on it in the canter. He free jumps 1.15m and is gaining the confidence he needs over jumps. He can do a series of obstacles at around 50cm and is very honest in his jumping.
Unfortunately he's up for sale... he's just too amazing for me, and because he loves to jump and I don't, I'm not going to punish him and hold him back anymore. But I thought I'd share his amazing photos anyways - I'm so proud of my boy!

Evo on the beach - not me riding, but my friend's capable rider :)

Yes!
He might not be the tidiest in form, as he throws his shoulder a bit, but he makes up for it with the smile on his face and how much he tries... he puts his heart into everything... he's an amazing horse.
One I'm going to miss lots!

I'll take him! He's gorgeous! Post him down to Australia for me????:D Lol!

How much are you gonna ask for him?

mudypony 01-22-2009 06:43 AM

He's so georgous!! I would so take him if I could afford him and if I lived in New Zealand.

ohmyitschelle 01-22-2009 04:32 PM

Aw thanks!
I'm going to ask $1500 for him. I'd like to ask a bit more as I think he's worth more, but because he's a Standardbred and has only been to one show outing (inhand) but will be doing his first event next month and then if we still have him the month after his first ridden show, I don't think anyone would pay $2000 for him (I know its only another $500 but the market sucks atm and hardly anyone gets $2000 for a Standy). I mean he's learnt all he has in just over 6 weeks... he offers more than he's asked, so he's the type to learn quickly. He's a bright horse and with the right rider will do incredibly well.
The main thing though is finding him the right home, for the wanted price or not, his happiness comes first. Am trying to get me an Isabell Werth saddle and they aren't cheap haha.
Thanks again :)

He looks great! How old is he? I love the water shots.

Wow he's beautiful! It looks like he's full of heart. I'd take him in a heartbeat if I could!
