This is the most absolute heartbreaking decision I have ever had to make. Benji has been very special to me and has been my best friend ever since I got him after my good horse died a few years ago. I’ve put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into making him the horse he is today, so please no time wasters, serious enquiries only. I am only selling him due to me focusing all of my time into bringing up my young horses. He is just too good of a horse to keep as a paddock ornament and have all his talent wasted.
Benji is a horse you can just tell what to do and he’ll do it giving everything he’s got in any discipline at all. He has lots of experience in many disciplines mostly showjumping, but also in dressage, horse trials and games. Before I got him he was competed up to level 1 HRCAV dressage. In 2016 we did a bit of sporting horse and competed in the royal Melbourne show in games and even managed to pick up a 4th place in the steak race finals. Benji has lots of experience at pony club, and pony club shows that include gymkhanas and horse trials. But his forte is showjumping, and it’s what he loves to do the most. I have competed Benji up to 1.20m at EA competitions, although he is most comfortable anywhere from 1m to 1.15 and very RARELY ever comes home without a ribbon. We won the state championships in 2015 and competed in the nationals coming home with a 3rd and a 6th. I have attended squad for the past 3 years with him, and done plenty of inter schools and agricultural shows.
Benji has no vices at all, good when getting his teeth/feet done, he self loads himself onto our truck although can be a little cheeky when trying to catch him, so I just take a carrot to him whenever I catch him. He has the biggest personality I have ever come across in a horse, he loves cuddles and is very cheeky. He loves to have attention and be pampered.
Ideally I’d love for him to go to a competition home. He would be perfect as a child coming off a pony and wanting to get experience at some bigger tracks in showjumping.
Please contact me if you would like to know anything else. Again no time wasters, this is a very hard sale for me.
He will only be sold to the BEST of homes, as he is special to me and I love him.
