Meet Dunlavin

Dunlavin is about 15.2hh and would be black if rugged. He is nice moving and is ideal for trail riding. Dunlavin doesn't spook easily and has been ridden past wombats, wallabies, goannas and large birds without blinking an eye. Due to a previous tendon injury, he would not be suited to being a performance horse. Dunlavin is currently on grass but would do better with some hard feed. He has a tendency to windsuck when stabled, but not in the paddock. He would suit an intermediate rider when being ridden in the company of other horses, but gets separation anxiety and requires an experienced rider when taken away from his buddies.
