Pepe is an absolute legend, loved by all who have been around him he is a true gent and needs to be treated as such. He enjoys being looked after like the Prince he is and in return he will ensure your child has the success they deserve. Pepe is a true BS pony who has excelled in the bronze league over the last few years, his jumping technique is excellent and he really knows his job. Pepe knows how to win and he needs a jockey who is going to work with him and follow his lead, he is also the safest pony you could ask for and always looks after his rider he is extremely experienced there isn't a major venue he hasn't competed at and placed at. We have had Pepe for just over a year now and he came to us from a hugely successful and knowledgeable show jumping family so has always been very well looked after and managed well. He is not a pony that has been over worked he has always been treated as he should and this is very important to us so a knowledgeable home is a must. Pepe competes regularly at 90cm and also jumps 1m in springboards but he is more than capable of going up to 1.10 and has done so with previous rider. We have jumped him to 1.20 at home but we wanted to focus on U11 and stepping stones classes with him this year. Pepe is great to hack but does prefer company, and we have also been doing some XC schooling with him which he has loved and shown he can truly turn his hoof to anything but make no mistake he is a SJ pony. He is so kind and caring in his stable our daughter loves to spend time fussing and grooming him, he has been turned out with Mares and geldings and has no worries. Unfortunately the partnership with our daughter hasn't gelled as we would have liked and this is why he has come up for sale. This is a very difficult decision for us as we all love him dearly, and we also know that the new pairing will most likely be a huge competitor on the circuit. As when he has the right partner he is very very difficult to beat. But we have come to the conclusion that it is best for Pepe to have a rider who has the same style as he does and we all just want the best for him, as do previous owners and we would want to stay in touch as would they with new family.
