Highview Ruler Nz (Inky) SOLD


Meet our little pocket rocket Inky, aka Highview Ruler Nz, who is in the care of HERO Retrainer Elle Moro at Moro Equine Services.

Inky came to HERO from the Adam Kelly stable and instantly endeared himself to all and sundry. He’s the cutest pony with a big personality.

We’re not going to say he might have been spoilt as a racehorse, but let’s just acknowledge that he’s always been a bit of a favourite.

Inky was a super racehorse winning 10 of his 28 starts and graduating to compete in metropolitan class.

He’s a seven-year-old gelding by Elsu who was born in NZ before being brought to Australia.

Inky raced in Tasmania initially prior to crossing to the mainland and made an instant impression on the track winning his first six Victorian starts.

Unfortunately he suffered an injury which sidelined him for 15 months in 2017 and although Inky returning to racing 100% sound early last year, his heart was no longer in it.

His connections therefore made the very commendable decision to retire him and give him the opportunity to move into a second career via the HERO Program.

Inky is a ripper package. Standing under 15hh and very solidly built, he’s cute as a button and super easy going.

He only commenced his HERO retraining recently but it’s pretty obvious not much is going to worry him.

We took him back to the races earlier this year as a part of Pat Your HERO and he handled himself like a true professional. He was entirely unfazed by being back in the racing environment.

Inky graduated to trail riding very quickly and has proven himself to be very reliable, both alone and in company.

We’re sure with ongoing education Inky would be perfectly capable of any ridden pursuit but in our opinion, his absolute forte is going to be cruisey hacks out with a no fuss rider who just wants to make the most of the opportunity to get back to nature.

There are absolutely no nasties whatsoever with Inky who is a dream to do all the basics – catch, tack, shoe, float etc.

But there is a little ounce of cheekiness, which is very easily checked but might intimidate a young rider.

To arrange an inspection, or for further information, contact Elle Moro on 0401 839 027.

Inky is located at Eppalock, on the outskirts of Bendigo and offered for sale at $3000.
