- Tentatively looking for a new 🏡 for our gorgeous boy Sunny…
14.2hh 12 year old grey Irish sports/ Connemara gelding 🐎
Sunny has been with us for 3 1/2 years having bought him as a 9 year old, in that time he has competed and trained very regularly with pc, showjumped up to 100, competed up to novice dressage and evented at UA90.
🎉Lots of top 10 placings at 90cm combined training, 2nd at Keysoe 80cm ode, 5th Tweseldown 80cm ode, 9th Hambleden pc90, 7th Offchurch 90cm ode, qualified for Bury farm unaffiliated dressage champs at novice🎉
Schools beautifully and consistently on the flat with established novice movements, scoring 72% in his most recent test. Beautiful show jumper, point and go who would happily take a smaller child around 70/80 whilst also being able to step up a gear and take a more competent child around the bigger classes. Very careful and tidy jumper who is very forgiving and always gets his rider out of trouble. My daughter has evented Sunny up to 90cm both unaffiliated and with pony club, and although capable we feel his heart is more within showjumping and dressage as he can lack confidence across country if not ridden forward enough. He does however absolutely love to hunt! Sunny has the sweetest temperament that you would want for a child’s pony, very quiet and easy to handle, tack up etc, just the loveliest pony to have around. We manage his clipping with light sedation to make it less stressful for him. Absolutely loves to hack and is perfect alone or in company, very safe in open spaces and goes first or last. Real confidence giver as he is never sharp or silly. We believe Sunny would be best suited to a quiet, competent rider to get the best out of him, as he can drop behind the leg (mainly on the flat).
Being an experienced competition pony, Sunny does have slight wear and tear in his right hock which has been treated, however he has never been lame and this has not affected his performance. Welcome to chat to our vet and physio about this. He is seen by physio every 3 months, teeth, saddle and vaccinations all up to date.
