Hardy Nose Bags
$45 each Only have 2 left. Great for feeding your horse/pony with out taking them out of the paddock and away from their mates. Horses should only eat with their heads low, (great head posture). They don't waist feed and are very handy when out and about.
Ben was restarted in April/May, he would have to be the smallest pony I have started yet and the hardest one to stay on, because of his little fast trot but all good fun. He is now back home and been ridden by his owner.

Timed trail ride middle of February in Okaihau 12km.
Spent 3 weeks starting 5 horses including 3 beautiful palominos by Showtym Spotlight (Texas). Spent the first week working them on the rope, round penning and saddling them up. The next week was spent riding them in the round pen, for the remaining week they were hacked out on the farm and on the last day they were quite enough for the owners to ride out on a trek around the farm.
