Mitch is the most amazing horse to have around. He is the true meaning of the words "bomb proof" because he is kind and absolutely quiet. Back in his racing days his nick name was "the policeman" as he was made to lead young race horses out to the track to calm them down when he was only two years old.
He is the only horse we have ever owned that would prefer to hang over the fence to watch a gun being shot at a target rather than run around. Mitch loves the beach, forest, hacking on busy roads- he is never fazed/spooky about anything.
I am sure he would love hunting also as he is a cross country machine.
Mitch evented to 3 star with his original owner Simon Gordon. He then went to another lovely family who we purchased him from 2 years ago. He was competing at 2 star level at the time we got him.
My daughter was 13 when she was lucky enough to start riding him. She has ridden him with success at 95 and 105 levels. Mitch is only for sale due to Molly making a decision to give riding a break to concentrate on important years at high school. Sad sale as he is a member of the family, but he is way too good to just leave in a paddock.
Our family friend Dannie Lodder has recently competed him at :
*Barge Park in the 2 star class on the 16th and 17th
* And placed 2nd in the Puhinui 2 * on the 2nd an 3rd March
