I am in auckland and would be using him for farm hacking, beach rides etc. Thats a good idea about trying him in scrub as some of the bush around my place is pretty thick and I would like to try and create some more tracks. I think the forest where I am going to tomorrow is mostly pine though.

Stan, that sounds like fun! A guy that I ride with uses a machete from his horse to clear the track when it gets too overgrown for us to get past, it always impresses me how his horse doesn't bat an eyelid with this huge knife being swung around her head.

I think the mare was a tb and the stallion a full andalusian. Will try and attach a pic of him.

I like that she said if you can ride he is a horse that you can become confident on really quickly as he is really easy to read. Soft hands I can do although might take a little adjustment on my part as my stubborn old plodder has a pretty hard mouth at times.

If he is good with other horses, are you interested in trekking, if so I can forward you the information on treks as they are arranged. The next big one is the bay of islands last week of November. Its a two day event most meals provided and it attracts riders from all over the country. We bunk down in the float or a tent.

I ride the Kai Iwi lakes district so its beach, farm, forrest, bush its all here. However the treks attract riders of all ages right up into their 70s

The one at the end of November is to raise money for the northland riding for the disabled.
If you want to be informed on the treks PM me you email address and as the info comes up ill forward it on to you

Good luck with the horse.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.
