Louie is a 12yo 16hh Thoroughbred who is looking for a new home. Sadly, his owner has had a stroke and cannot care for him or his buddy (Cohen) anymore.
Louie is a friendly boy who is genuinely easy to catch, trim and rug. He was never raced and at some point had some training on the flat and in jumping however has become sour in the arena and no longer enjoys this work. For this reason, we think he would be suited to a confident rider who wants to trail ride or pleasure ride. He is very quiet to deal with on the ground. He needs some time with floating and may take a couple of times to get him on.
Louie is currently in care with Karen who offered a temporary solution for both boys when the family needed help. Karen got a professional rider out to assess Louie to see his suitability for her. Louie had a small pigroot at the start of the ride but was confidently ridden through this by the professional. He did not display any of this behaviour out on the trail and was good in traffic with no nasties, no pull or bolt. We believe he would be best suited to trail riding with someone who is knowledgeable and competent with horses.
Louie is currently located in Panton Hill, Victoria. His adoption fee is $650. If you think you can offer Louie a great future, please contact Catherine on 0417 977 847. Karen is also happy for you to contact her direct on 0407 512 474.
