- All Rounder, Pony Club and Show Jumping
- Kalmara What a Surprise has been a fabulous pony and taught my daughter a lot but she is now ready to move onto something to take her further still. If you're looking for a second pony to teach your child to ride then Surprise will do that.
*Speedy jumping pony - if you want to go and win she will win 50s/60s and even 70s , rarely has a pole
*Great for mounted games, loves the speed, a little worried about the flags but we only did one session and she got a lot better towards the end
*Travels well on her own in our small lorry and will stand on the lorry all day long
*Great away from home has done pony club camp and Trailblazers
*Doesn't behave any differently at shows
*Not nappy at all when been to pony club, riding club
*Fit and healthy, no cushings, history of lami etc
*Great out hacking, not spooky, goes past all traffic
*Good for the farrier
*Fine being clipped
*Up to date with vaccs, dentist, physio
*Done lots of pony club rallies, does a good dressage test, stands on the buckle while others go out cross country, showjumping etc
I don't think there is a perfect pony, there are always going to be faults and I want to make sure she goes to the right home.
*She is a bit spooky with fillers, we have worked for ages to help her get over her fear but she never gets better, this isn't going to change - has a small BS record and this reflects her fear of fillers
*She's happiest jumping up to 70s, she has done 80s with her and jumped the puissance wall at a metre but I don't think she really enjoys jumping the bigger jumps
*She will take a while to settle, she is a typical chestnut mare and will form a bond with her little person
*Doesn't like travelling on her own in a trailer
*Isn't a massive fan of standing and being pampered, she wants to go and do something, saying that she has mellowed a bit and my daughter can faff about with her a bit more than she used to
She's a super little pony who knows her job and would be happy in an all round home where she can do a bit of everything. She does need a confident, gutsy child who wants to go quick when out jumping etc as she does want to get on with the job. A nervous child would not suit. She has taught my daughter a lot.
