It is fast going towards winter (even though it will be 30 degrees today) and before it gets dark and wet there is a lot of work to be done. We need a light on the arena and a driveway and parking area next to the arena and eventually a shed as well. All these things come with pricetags so unfortunately some of the horses are for sale and others are still up for part-lease. I will miss them greatly but beggars can’t be choosers.
For sale are:
15.2hh bay TB mare going on 5 years old. Ash is a lovely gentle soul. She is no dressage star yet as she will need more training but she is currently used as a school horse and does a great job with the complete beginners in walk off the lunge and in trot on the lunge and the better riders who can make her go in a nice outline and do a bit of lateral work with her. She has been hacked out to the Riding Club grounds along the roads, she has worked in private lessons and group lessons, done trotpole work and some small jumps. She is easy to catch, loves a groom and a smootch, no problem to trim (currently barefoot) and great in a paddock with other horses, not a “marey” mare. She did her first level 5 dressage test last Sunday. (picture is quite old, will see if there is any newer ones of her as she has grown into herself much more and is quite pretty)
$2500,- including GST
“Dun Manus Peader”
14.1hh grey Connemara gelding going on 4 years old, currently in process of being started under saddle. Peader is a real head turner, he won at the Connemara Showcase last year under Irish judges, he is a very typey Connemara. He is a pleasure to have around, comes up to have a cuddle and is not fussed about much. He has had a saddle and bridle on, lunges well. Has had a rider on his back at this stage but is certainly not a ridden pony yet.
$3500,- including GST
These prices are firm as they are very reasonable.

For Part-lease are:
14.2 and a bit hh chocolate buckskin Connemara gelding. Stirling is the easiest horse you will ever ride. He is very light on the aids and has very smooth gaits. Stirling has been to many adult riding club and pony club days and other clinics and shows. He has been to Riddells Creek ARC, to Gisborne and District Adult riding club, Riddells Creek pony club. He did the dressage and the quadrille at Werribee National Equestrian Centre for the Connemara Showcase and was demonstration pony at a clinic with Manolo Mendez who loved him and his trainability. Stirling is a school pony and will keep doing lessons when he is leased. He will be available to take to riding club or pony club and to competitions in mutual agreement.
14.1hh blue eyed cream Connemara gelding.
Zeus is a very special boy with his pretty blue eyes. He is 13 years old and quite new to the Yggdrasil team but is proving to be a great addition. Zeus will also be available to take to pony club or ARC rallies with his lease person.
I need to measure Darragh I guess he is around 15hh. Grey Connemara x Australian Stock Horse. Darragh is a lovely boy who through some bad luck early in life is only able to do dressage and trot poles but will not be able to jump. He is going well in school lessons and is a nice soft bouncy ride who looks quite pretty under saddle.
Part lease is $165,- a week. This includes a group lesson, all costs for the keep of the horse (rugs, tack, trims, worming, vet, saddlefitting etc) You can just come and ride your horse as many times a week as you like (most people manage about 3 or 4 rides a week on their horse) And of course you can take your horse to club rallies if you join a club or go to clinics etc in mutual agreement.
