13.1 Irish Sports pony , rising 6yr gelding .
All rounder / potential pony club / happy hacker / hunting pony , he’s forward going - get on and go type so wouldn’t be suitable for a complete novice , more of a 2nd pony , mother/daughter share .
Easy to deal with , good for the farrier , stands without a headcollar on to fully clip, loads himself and will stand on the box all day long . Hacked out alone and in company , been through streams , open fields etc ..
been to arena hires and takes everything in his stride .
Lovely flatwork works in a natural outline , forward going but will go sweetly in a snaffle for flatwork , i do have him in a stronger bit for jumping - more to keep him together rather then him being strong as he’s keen and loves it . Bold with fillers , will happily trot into a fence or canter.
Showing plenty of scope over a fence , very careful so would progress up the heights in the showjumping ring . I can see him excelling out hunting next season , hunter trials etc as loves being out and about. Not a bucker / rearer / nappy .
No vices or injuries , stands to be faffed and groomed , can be grumpy and pull a face in the stable ( mainly when waiting for his feed or haynet ) but nothing horrendous . Happy stabled but equally happy living out - lived out 24/7 with his previous owner.
