Ima Little Rustler (aka Little Bear)

Quarter Horse Stallion

AQHA - Q-68342

DOB - 14/11/08, 6 years old

Sire: Murrumbo Gold Rustler Q-13990

$16,000 - home is more important than price so if you think you could provide the perfect home then give me a call to discuss it (0458298338)

It is with great sadness that I look for a home for Bear. He has been my companion and demonstration horse for 2 years now and is worth his weight in GOLD.

Little Bear would make a perfect reining horse or would be equally happy gelded and going to Pony Club at weekends and trail riding with Mum during the week. He is easy in every way, handled by children (even as a stallion and has no colty tendencies) and has the very best foundation training (meaning you can leave him for months and jump on and know he will be 100%). I always put any nervous or beginner riders I get on Bear because I know he will look after them. Horses of this calibre rarely come on the market.

Below is a video of his most recent demonstration at the Unbridled Festival of Horses, Music and Food in Canberra (15th November, 2014). I am afraid that the sound isn't terribly good but you can see how relaxed Bear is despite the crowd, other horses and loud music.

Bear is a pleasure to own in every way. Although he is a stallion, he has never covered a mare and shows absolutely no colty behaviour, even at busy shows.

Temperament-wise he is faultless and so quiet that when I have nervous riders, it is this 6 year old stallion that I get them to ride.

The only reason I am selling him is because I really feel he would be better off with someone that could give him more attention that I am able to. Currently he spends most of his time in the paddock and I get him out, with a couple of days preparation, to take him to demonstrate on, teach a clinic or show. He is bright and easy to engage and I feel would love to be a bit busier.

He has been in many different situations, demonstrating at Murrumbateman, Griffith and Mudgee Field Days this year, competed in dressage and Working Equitation at SIEC, attended Adult Riding Club and other clinics, just to name a few.

If you think you might have the perfect home for Bear (and I do understand that most people would prefer to geld him and I can't see a problem with that as he has never shown any stallion behaviour), please give me a call to discuss it.
