Meet Picasso

Stockhorse x Quarter Horse

Picasso was rehomed by DCH last year to a great home in Victoria. However, his new owner no longer has the time to ride him and doesn't want him wasting in the paddock. Picasso is about 16hh. He is quiet to handle, and has had natural horsemanship training on the ground and under saddle. He's done flatwork, jumping logs, riding in the bush, he's good with cars and getting used to trucks and motorbikes. He is responsive to neckreining, leg aids, stops and backs up on command. Picasso works well with other horses or by himself. He would be a good cattle horse/ barrel racer with the right training as he is quick on his feet and very smart and eager to please. He would suit an experienced rider to go on with. Picasso is fine in a paddock with other livestock, and also good around dogs.

Picasso was adopted on 14 August 2006 after 3 weeks in foster care
