Horses for courses

NAME. Rebel but we call her Nibbly

AGE . 6 years

BREED. Quarter horse

SIZE. 14.5 hands

RIDER . Experienced

Nibbly is very well trained she know leg aides side passes and is very soft in the mouth. She can be very marey and bossy with other horses especially where food is concerned so she does need to have a suitable distance around herself. Nibbly hasn’t any dirt in her but I say she needs an experienced rider as she likes a loose rein and a learner tends to hold on with the reins and this frustrates her and she will throw her head around and get cranky.

Nibbles has an excellent slow lope and is keen to please , she is a sucker for apples, carrots and pears, in fact  anything eatable. She has a gorgeous nature is so very soft and plump, loves a cuddles and any attention. She is first to come over and will always neigh a welcome when she sees you or thinks you have something for her.

Rosie is a lovely big girl that still has a lot to give. She has spent most of her life being used as a trail riding horse on the Mornington Peninsular showing off the beautiful vineyards.

    Nibbly looks great Annemarie, beautiful colour and conformation. At only 6, she has a long wonderful future. I look forward to giving her a “cuddle” one day. It says she is 14.5HH, should that be 14.3HH Annemarie? With age on my side now, my last horse was 14 HH which suits me to get on and off, however. I ride all types at the Billabong Ranch.
    Have a lovely day, shall see you Wednesday.

    Cheers and happy riding from Jenny
