It's interesting for sure! You know what would be fun though, to be the wrangler for a movie!

And, I totally hijacked the thread there... sorry!

Sad fact - the main horse used in The Man from Snowy River ended up being neglected. He was rescued though, brought back into health and lived a long and loved life :) I'll see if I can find the article about it, it was in Horsewyse magazine yeeears ago.

Naturally I can't find any evidence of that article now online... it was years ago, like 2006 or something that I read it... Maybe it wasn't the main horse, maybe it was one of the stunt horses? Ah well, it was certainly a buckskin that had been in the movie, whether the main horse or not I can't remember!

Jealous!

Brumbies are one of my dream horses. The fact that the one you're leasing has done endurance just makes me even more jealous, as I want to get into it one day. Pictures are a must!

May your Brumby be the same! A good-will ambassador for his breed wherever he goes.
I have the same story, the very best horse I've ever owned is a "mutt, pest, feral" mustang.

You want to know the way I handle it when someone scoffs and looks down their nose at my horse just because of his breed (or lack thereof)?

I simply smile, walk away, and Dobe and I proceed to work circles around them and their little registered horse.

I've always been fascinated by Brumbies and I, for one, would love to see some pictures of him if you bring him home.

Sorry, just seen people get hurt because they said exactly what you did and let their horse get away with being pushy, then it escalated.

Anyway, other than that, he sounds amazing. Like Sky said, don't even pay attention to the dissers. Plenty of people said "You have a draft cross?" to me when I got Aires like it was some horrible thing. Now I just laugh at them because my horse is calmer and better behaved than their QHs.

Owner told me when she let her begginer boyfriend ride him and be around him he got pushy, not with her only with begginers that are scared of him. I need to visit him in person im doing it in 1 week.

Well... i think i will need to bring a different riding instructor to check him out, (see if we suit each other) take him on trial and will have time to decide. I messaged the manager of my agistment but got no response, maybe i should ring her. Paranoid that every one hates brumbies, maybe people think i can only handle a dumbed down horse.. but the horsei had before was hardly educated and not educated properly nor had he done any trail work and was a very unconfident jumper so i dont understand why people think i cant handle a horse thats more educated.

Is it worth getting a pre purchase examination ? Or start with visiting horse with a good instructor and than do a trial ?

Both those are really good ideas.

I can understand how you feel OP - my passion is Standardbreds and most people shudder when I tell them that lol. Many people think Stbs are "ugly with big heads and only good in harness". So I can understand being offended but you just need to get over it and prove them wrong ;)

I just have on the more extreme side paranoia so right now im thinking they wont let me have the horse at the agistment, but no one has said im not allowed who owns or mangers the agistment.
