Scissors is a 12 year old Australian TB by Platinum Scissors. He is bigger boned than the average TB and often gets mistaken for a WB.
Scissors has been a much loved member of the family for the past 3 years. He has taught me so much and has sparked my interest in dressage.
Scissors is a good allrounder but is best suited to dressage and this is what he loves. He is schooling Level 3/4 dressage but due to lack of registration have only competed to unregistered L2. Lateral movements such as shoulder in, leg yield, half pass and travers are all established. During our Bill Noble lessons Bill believes that he could go right through to advanced level dressage with the right rider.
Some of his dressage results include:
o NEG dressage day 1B 2nd and 1C 1st
o Scandal Trophy winning all 3 of his tests including NZPCA test 3A
o Canterbury secondary school dressage 2nd test 1C
o Canterbury dressage winter dressage day 2nd 2C and 3rd in 2B
We have also dabbled in eventing at 65cm and 80cm and had some good results such as winning View Hill ODE 80, Waihora ODE 80 and Amberley ODE 80cm in our 2019 season.
Scissors is a pleasure to have around he is great to catch, shoe, worm and float (self loads most of the time). He has a very fun and loving personality and always puts a smile on our faces. However he is a TB and does have TB moments and so no beginners.
He is happy to hack out alone and in company, good with traffic and farm machinery. We have taken him to the beach and forest which he behaved well. He has attended pony club where is well mannered and well behaved.
This is a very sad sale due to rider going to University.
