Description:

Fly Away Peter, fondly known as Pete, is a beautiful kind and loving boy who loves pats. Pete last raced in February 2019, retiring with 31 starts for two wins and two seconds. Pete was then retired to the trainer’s riding school due to his temperament.

I purchased Pete last year February 2020 with the intention for my partner to ride and train him to become my competition horse. I hadn’t ridden in over 10 years, Pete was the first horse I’d ridden and I fell in love with him.

We began his training with lunging, using voice commands. Pete was in work for around six weeks before a number of rider injuries (not horse related) meant that has been on spell since around June 2020. Pete is happy out on spell, but is going to waste.

Pete’s slight clubbed foot and previous throat operation do not affect him. He successfully continued racing after his operation.

Pete is currently in paddock mode, but once in work his manners will return. He is easy to do anything with and will suit any discipline.

This is very regretful decision and one that has taken me months to decide. I need to do what’s best for him. Please keep in mind, he is in paddock condition and therefore I can’t jump on him to show you what he is like. He doesn’t have any dirt, and I don’t envisage he will be hard to bring back into work.

He is currently spelling at an agistment centre in Benga, just past Harvey. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
