Eventing, Dressage and Pony Club
14.2hh rising 7yo dapple grey Class 1 Connemara gelding. The ultimate competition pony in the making. Storm is a very correct and athletic model, a truly fantastic example of the breed and why they are so brilliant as top performance ponies. He has a very sweet and kind nature and is very easy and polite on the ground. Storm is currently working at elementary level on the flat with a genuine, willing and trainable nature that will surely see him continue to progress up the levels with the right production. He is very well balanced with 3 rhythmical, uphill paces and is obedient and forward off the leg. Consistently achieving sub-35 dressage scores this season with the potential for sub-30 scores with only a bit more experience. Storm has done PC, NSEA, unaffiliated showjumping and dressage and BE. Careful and bold, adores cross country and finished his first eventing season without a single cross country jumping fault. Evented up to BE90 in his first season, finishing on Bicton 3 day event. Schooling at 100 level. Storm is a very versatile pony and a real workaholic who loves any discipline. Always tries his hardest and wants to please. He is snaffle mouthed in all disciplines and rides in a nice outline. He has qualified for 9 different championships this year including PC Regionals eventing, Science Supplements Eventing Championships Qualifiers, BE, SEEL Champs in Arena Eventing and Sunshine Tours in every discipline. Storm hacks alone and in company and is good in all traffic. He is the most honest pony and will always jump for you no matter what stride he’s on. He’s been to various BEu18 camps and PC camps. Easy to load, shoe, wash etc. Recently shod, checked by the dentist and physio. Fit and ready to go! Storm is a truly talented individual who has been very well produced so far by his teenage rider. As you would expect from a pony of his type and ability Storm is a sensitive ride who needs a quiet, confident and capable rider to match his ability and continue progressing his education. Storm is looking for a busy, competitive life and is not suitable as a first pony or for a low activity home. Very sad sale due to rider having to move off ponies.
