Description
Rory. Rory is 17yrs He has been our family member for nearly two years and we adore this gold dust pony!! He’s simply outgrown in size and ability. Rory has done a bit of EVERYTHING! He’s safe as houses but a forward ride with good brakes. 100% traffic, handle, box - load/ catch, easy type to do! Rory was predominately a show jumper in his last homes, but we feel that this is no longer his favourite job, he’d be happier having a gallop over the mendips!! He would still be competitive at upto 70cm but we want him to step down from the affiliated high profile shows - although his behaviour doesn’t alter for the rider - he can show some anxiety and we feel he deserves now a change and some all round varied fun! You can ride Rory on the buckle through an open space, and when asked he will happily take you for a gallop, he can move! But he comes straight back down to calm. My daughter does everything with this pony independently - including hacking alone. Her grandmother happily looks after him while we are away and he’s the pony we pop the novices on for a hack. That being said he’s no old plod! He likes to be upfront with a swagger in his step We tried for the first time two pony club pony races this year where he was very successful - and he and my daughter were just having so much fun! Their adrenalin was shining through, and the trust they have for each other was abundant and obvious in the joy on both their faces! They came 2nd at Dorset PTP in their first ever race over 4F and then 4th at wincanton race course over 8F!! He loved the rallies at the gallops leading up to this too!! He’s done pole clinics, camps, XC, fun rides, hacking, sj, … Rory is the sweetest, kind and submissive pony - we are looking for a family who will adore him like we do. He is accustomed to a pampered life, as he has looked after my daughter, we care for him very much. Only the best of homes for this loved boy! He is truly a safe, forward bundle of fun - please serious enquiries only, he won’t go to just anyone!! We are located 10 mins from Bristol airport and 10mins from Clevedon junction M5 Arena and facilities For the right home we will try accommodate as many viewings as we can to get the correct pairing and the home he deserves Full history HUNDREDS of pics & vids! Please tell us a little about YOU when enquiring so we can get the best match
