30yo grey warmblood cross mare

Gina is an amazing old girl, sadly missed by her previous owners.

Gina is a retired polo pony who was apparently Qld Polo Pony of the Year for three years running at the height of her career.
She then broke her elbow, spent six months in a sling in a stable and six months afterwards, locked up in the box.
As the story goes, she then went on to win Qld Polo Pony of the Year once more. What a great old girl!

Gina clicks with the special pupils that she feels she can help most, and even jumped around  1m courses with one of our 12-year-old girls as well as being a confidence builder.

She too is a been there, done that kind of horse who is foot-perfect out on the trails. She also has the world's easiest sitting trot and is just perfect for those wanting to master that work.

Gina carried student Melissa Madafiglio to medal-winning status at the Special Olympics State Championships and was a star!

Gina now rarely carries adult riders but adores her little students and especially school holiday camps and students who like to go fast from a halt (shades of her younger days!)

We hope Gina will live to a ripe old age!
