Charlie has been sold

After having a very successful racing career, Charlie is now looking for a life after racing through the HRNZ HERO Programme. Charlie is showing promising potential to be an exceptional show horse.

Charlie will only go to the best of homes and we would love to see him excelling in the show ring in the future! Charlie retired with a minor tendon injury so he will not be able to jump and would ideally suit a dressage/showing home. Charlie has been completely sound since retirement with no issues at all.

Additional Information
  • Charlie has been an absolute dream to start under saddle with walk and trot well established, he is cantering in a frame on both leads and will only get better with time.
  • Charlie will make a promising prospect for someone looking to produce a nice horse, in the right hands we envision him going all the way to Horse of the Year.
  • Charlie has a lovely refined head and has been to one Inhand show when he was fresh off the track and behaved exceptionally taking in the new environment like a pro. Picking up wins and placings and receiving some great comments from the judges.
  • Charlie is great natured and fantastic to handle in all aspects.
  • He is great for the farrier and dentist, has been trucked and floated and is good to clip.
  • Charlie has been well socialised with other horses and is good around dogs.
