‘Martingdale Rockefella’ aka ‘Marty’
Posted: Tue, 21st Jan 2020
FOR SALE (reluctantly) 'Martingdale Rockefella' aka 'Marty'. TB black gelding, 16.2hh. 9yo.
Gentle giant Marty is THAT gem. The ultimate pony club allrounder, who will look after the most nervous or novice of riders, but can rise to bigger occasions.
Purchased for my 13yo (now 17), Marty has done shows, gymkhanas, eventing, zone camps - the gamit. Best at hacking and dressage. Presenting aesthetically more like a WB/TB cross, Marty is a headturner and always comes home with ribbons.
However, he's a horseperson's horse, so while he's safe, calm and willing, he rises to the riders' ability. If you want pushbutton, this horse is not for you, as he will coast if you let him. He performs best on a short rein and firm seat.
If you want a safe horse that will have a go at anything, jumps a round and will then go straight in after and do a solid dressage test without a hint of fizz, then this may be your man.
We're happy for locals to trial him. But understand potential homes will also be on trial. It has taken us a year to convince our daughter to let someone else enjoy and use him, as she is going into Y12 and won't have the time to compete in 2020. So please NO time wasters or agisters, we do not want to offend.
This horse is very special and horse families who know how rare that is, and what that means, and who are looking for a horse to compete and grow with, will love him.
$8000 Negotiable to right home
