Danny
  
Danny, approx 15.3hh, 11 yo, TB X QH (By the General) gelding. Good to catch, saddle, float, do feet etc. I have had Danny since August 2011 and the owner before me knew him as a foal as her father bred him, so his whole history is known and previous owner can be contacted if you wish. Is handled/trained using natural horsemanship methods now he is with me (Parelli, Clinton Anderson etc), but wasnt in the past. Knows sideways, back up, moving front and hind quarters, lateral and vertical flexion both on his back and from the ground. Fantastic to do gates on. Has not had alot of jumping experience but has shown nice jumping style over show and cross country jumps. Has done lots of trekking since I have had him and I have found him to be active, bold and can go and go all day. It seems he loves getting out and about. Can be ridden alone of in company. With the right person Danny is is suitable for any equine pursuit he has the potential to event, do dressage, jumping, pony club, rodeo etc or would be just as happy as a farm hack! Danny has no vices but he is very keen, has a SUPER fast walk. Make a fantastic trekking horse as he goes all day and isnt a slug. He is an absolute gentleman on the ground and respectful of his handlers space. Loves attention etc. Can be ridden bareback, in a halter etc or normally with saddle and bridle.

Maverick
  
Rising 6 year old, 13.3hh, Kaimanawa gelding. Good to catch, saddle, trim feet, handle, brush etc. Has been floated a good few times with success. Easy to own, low maintenance type. Maverick came to us straight from the 2008 muster, we have had him ever since. He has been extensively trained on the ground using Clinton Andersons method & is very respectful. He understands the importance of respecting his handlers space & using the thinking side of his brain. He knows how to move his hindquarters, forequarters, lower his head, walk, trot & canter on a circle & back up. Under saddle Maverick is further proving his respect for his handler. He moves off light leg aids & respects the bridle, this is evident with his super soft head flexion & backup! He has an established one-rein stop, walk, trot, canter, back up, hindquarter turn, forequarter turn & sidepass. He rides out relaxed on a loose rein, is not in a hurry to go forward, has been ridden alone & in company. Maverick has not had any official jump training but is very athletic & has demonstrated his ability to jump on numerous occasions. Knows how to flex vertically, hold gait & make smooth transitions. We have done lots of work getting his body soft & supple with serpentines, one-rein stops & other body maneuvers. Can be ridden bareback or in a saddle, halter or bridle. Maverick is a safe wee boy who tries very hard to please. He has no vices. His ideal rider would be a small adult or youth with some experience. He has the potential to be trained for any discipline as he has a very solid foundation.

Kotare Queen
     
14.2hh, rising 5 year old Kaimanawa mare. Came in the 2008 muster, I have owned her ever since, know her whole history since her fist handling. Queen is good to catch, saddle, tie up, brush, with dogs & motorbikes etc. We do lots of desensitizing exercises and ground work. Through these exercises she knows how to independently move all parts of her body in a soft, respectful and responsive way and not to panic, but use the thinking side of her brain. Bold and confident pony, point her at logs & banks, she jumps them all without hesitation, is a natural jumper. Not at all worried with river crossings, mud and changes of terrain. Has an established walk, trot, canter, gallop & back-up. Soft & responsive pony, disengages hindquarters & forequarters with light, gentle aids. Working well on the flat- naturally balanced, currently developing her vertical flexion at walk and trot. As well as this she is moving side ways both stationary & at walk & beginnings of a trot. Queen is an easy pony to have around. She is good alone or in company- happy to plod behind &/or stay with group. Good with other horses, no dirt. Safe wee girl with a one-rein stop (emergency brake) established if ever needed. Is getting quieter and quieter as she gets older. Not suitable for complete beginners, but I feel she is very close to being able to be!

Can be ridden with nothing on, in just a halter or bridle. Does not need regular riding, can be pulled out of the paddock and hopped straight on.

Comet
   
Great for beginners, Comet is a pleasure to handle in every way. He is a kaimanawa (from the 08 muster) gelding and stands at 13.2hh. Very honest wee fella, not a slug, but not forward moving either. Very laid back nature, is not fussed when other horses take off and leave him behind. Smooth, balanced paces make him a comfortable ride. Loves cuddles and attention, will stand all day being brushed. Will happily graze with some one sitting 
on his back with no one on. Does not need to be in regular work, he is the same reliable pony every time.
