Nimbus (Achernar) is a 15 year old imported New Zealand Thoroughbred. He looks nothing like the typical American bred TB's, he is built like a warmblood, massive, well structured, big feet, great hoof quality. He stands a solid 16.3 H and has a great work ethic. We rescued Nimbus from his previous owner who was no longer able to keep him. We are offering Nimbus at a $0 adoption fee. Because of our new schedules we are unable to work Nimbus and he is much happier when being worked.... (read more) He has been out of regular work for about 4 months and will need a confident, experienced rider to brush him up and polish him off. Nimbus is forward and fun to ride. Don't let his age fool you this boy has more energy and stamina than all the young horses we have ever had. If anything you benefit from his age in the way that he thinks and behaves. He has never misbehaved under saddle in any way. Nimbus does well at the walk, he will roll right into the canter from the trot if his rider lets him, canter is his preferred gait. He needs a strong rider to work him through this. With regular work this boy is amazing, he muscles up well and would work all day. We truly feel he could, in the future be a lesson horse, a fantastic show mount, or just a pleasure horse for an avid rider. Nimbus would free jump all day if we asked, and could make a awesome eventer. We are in the process of closing our horse farm and no longer have tack to fit Nimbus (saddles and bridles sold first of Sept), nor do we have a good place to ride him. For that reason we are offering a 30 day trial period. Which also helps us make sure that we have placed Nimbus with the right person.
