For sale through no fault of his own, rider has outgrown him sadly!
Riva is an amazing pony with the biggest personality. He has done ponyclub; Irish Pony Club Festival showjumping qualifiers&finals (winning the qualifier), Pony Club Camp, Eventing and even games!
He had lots of experience hunting as a youngster. Has done some low-level working hunter shows, but as a pure connemara would be eligible for Connemara Classes.
He has done inter schools up to Open level, multiple placings overall and top ten in the 2019 Finals!
Evented & Showjumping unregistered up to 100cm
This year ventured into SJI registered showjumping - up to 1m going double clear almost every time!
He has been ridden bareback and tackless. Happily hacks out alone or in company. No problem being Lunged. Has gone to the beach. He has pretty much done everything!!
Riva is such a special pony with so much personality.
He is an angel on the ground - you could nearly crawl underneath him and he wouldn’t bat an eye! Loads well. He is just as good for the farrier/ his feet being handled. Perfect for the dentist/clipping/ injections etc.
He is not a novice ride however, he can get strong at times (no badness - only enthusiasm as he adores jumping!) so will need a confident rider - would be better suited as a second or third pony, rather than a first. He does take a little getting used to, but once you adjust he will try his absolute heart out for you.
A very sad sale as rider has moved onto horses, he truly is part of the family so will only go to a 5* home
