Meet Zac

12years, 16.3hh

Zac is a stunning 16.3 Brown/Black Thoroughbred Gelding who is 12 years old and very healthy. He is looking for a loving owner as a low use horse as he has mild arthritis. He would be OK for weekly walking trail rides (slow pace only). Zac would stay at his current agistment at Maraylya. The current owner would pay for agistment, daily feeding, rugging, worming, hoof care and all vet expenses. As a leasee all you would need to pay is $50 a week and you would have full use of Zac and could ride him anytime. Where he is agisted there are lovely grass trails (no road riding required). There are also a few ladies who agist their horses who go on regular trail rides who you could accompany with Zac. Zac needs an experienced rider although he is quiet.

He is great to handle and easy to care for. He gets along well with other horses (all sizes) and is a very loving boy. This would be a great opportunity for someone who would like to get back into riding but may not have the time to visit and take care of him every day. As the owner is paying for him to be fed and cared for you can just visit when you have time knowing that he will be cared for until you return. As the owner is subsiding all of the costs it is also a much cheaper option for you to pay just $50 a week total expenses. You will need your own bridle and saddle and saddle cloth and helmet but all other items such as brushes rugs, halters etc. are available.

Long term lease with continued assistance from owner if required.
