Very sadly my daughter has given up riding so her wonderful pony needs a new home. We have owned him for nearly 4 years and he has been ridden by my daughter since she was 7, now a tall 10 yr old it would have been her last year on him. They have mostly show jumped, he has taken her from 40 cm up to 70 cm, they have had great success riding for pony club and NSEA, competing at Hickstead NSEA champs in 2022. He is very forgiving, mostly being pulled out of the field for a competition then performing beautifully. With schooling, fitness and a confident jockey he could take a child far and give loads of confidence.
He has been active in the pony club, lots of rallies, show jumping, 3 times at camp. She only stared xc with him last year but we took him xc schooling, to xc farm rides and competed at one 70 cm ODE which despite being a first for both pony and rider, went really well although a few stops xc he flew through the water. We have tried games but he gets a bit over excited so wouldn’t recommend him as a games pony. He is great on the road with traffic and general hacking, he likes to be up front in canter. We have never hunted him so I don’t know how he would behave. He has a fantastic personality, he is confident, forward and really fun, you have to be careful tying him up as he knows how to untie the rope! Perfect to clip, shoe, groom, have teeth done, catch and load (we have a lorry, have taken him in trailer a few times). He is very used to children, dogs, cats and general chaotic family life – fancy dress, round the world and being leapt on and off. He loves a cuddle and a scratch and will stand very patiently for children to groom and pamper him.
He is best suited to a confident rider, I would not recommend him as a first pony as he can be a bit keen sometimes.
Up to date with vaccines, teeth, worming and recently shod - he has front shoes. Sale includes tack.
I have loads more videos and pics that I can email. Experienced homes only. He deserves the best!
