Dylanglen Stud has decided to offer Dylanglen Blizzard for sale. Dylanglen Blizzard is an outstanding show hunter/performance prospect who will also excel as a dressage pony. He placed first in Part-Bred Connemara and first in Show Hunter at his first show. We unfortunately do not have the time commitments or the room to keep him.
Registered with the CPBSA and APSB, Dylanglen Blizzard is 3/4 Connemara & 1/4 Warmblood. Click on the link below to view the full pedigree for Dylanglen Blizzard.
Blizzard (Blizz) has a very kind temperament and likes to please you, making him fairly easy to train. He works better with a soft touch. He is not bossy and usually finds himself at the bottom of the pecking order in the paddock, therefore we are very careful with who he shares a paddock with.
He has fabulous athletic ability, with big movement for his size and the stamina to go with it. He has been shown, rugged, washed, shod (currently bare foot) etc and handles all of the fuss well. He was broken into saddle during 2014 and even though he is green he has the ability to canter 20 meter circles and complete a basic prelim dressage test. He has also been taught to lunge and he floats with ease.
He was professionally broken into saddle by Bruce Ross, a very experienced and knowledgeable professional horseman in our local area. Bruce Ross indicated that this boy will make a “lovely dressage pony”. We are confident that he will make a great show hunter pony as well. The Warmblood side to him gives him that “big” movement, and mixed with a Connemara makes him quite comfortable to ride. He has been ridden for approximately 3 months but now we have basically ran out of room to ride him!
Bruce Ross did not need to lunge Blizz before riding him, but at home we lunge him first before riding him. He likes to be ridden quietly and is not ready for anything gung hoe just yet! He just pokes along for you and doesn’t argue much. He is not piggy and likes to go forward, hence he is easy to get moving for a green horse. He can handle 30 minutes to an hour of riding with ease. The only thing he has done under saddle so far is shy and he has a tendency to rush forward when he does shy. There is no buck or bite.
Blizz will only be available to the right home. He is currently not suitable for children. He is still too green and he has a strong build. He is only suitable for an experienced horseperson who knows how to ride and train a green horse. Therefore only genuine enquirers will be considered. No time wasters. Please refer to the “Contact Us” page should you wish to contact us. Price: $X,XXX incl GST. Located at Rand, NSW.
Updated photo’s will be added to our website http://www.dylanglen.com.au and our Facebook page “Dylanglen Connemara Stud” over the next week. Also, due to the recent purchase of a new camera, we will hopefully upload a video!! Again, our contact details can be found on the “Contact Us” page of our website.
Dylanglen Blizzard also has his own webpage on our website under the “Stock for Sale” section and his own photo album on our Facebook page.
