For Sale - Playful "Oreo" at 15.1, a horse: but with a true pony personality and feel. In the almost two years since we have owned him, he has hunted, trail ridden alone and in company, pony clubbed, been shared by friends, been dressed up, ridden bareback and swum in creeks. He can be taken anywhere at any time – and he has the same calm, can do attitude. He has never needed lunged or schooled at a show – and can be left in the field for a couple of weeks without any shenanigans when asked to work.
Extraordinarily sound, he is an easy keeper who loves his food – has rock hard feet and superb legs.
Dressage judges love him – in our first dressage season he has scored consistently in the high 60s /low 70s at Training level: winning at Lamplight – and taking third in the Training level Musical Freestyle at Pony Club Championships.
He is an enthusiastic jumper – winning the IDCTA Combined Training Championships at Starter Novice Level. He is forward going and catty in the ring: but calm enough for gymnastic exercises and grid work. He is honest cross country – taking confidence from his rider - jumping banks, water and ditches without a fuss. He has eventing ribbons through Novice with his previous owner.
He passed his C1 Pony Club rating without a fault.
So why is he for sale? Abby now aspires to greatness with the confidence he has imparted. She has started to ride our Thoroughbreds, and hopes to compete next year in Hunter/Jumper ring. She is also almost 5’6”…..and growing by leaps and bounds. Knowing it takes a while to market a horse these days, we want to start early, whilst we are still enjoying him, and find him the perfect home.
His perfect owner? A keen Pony Clubber or Adult Amateur who wants to excel at dressage, enjoy a trail ride, safely trail and hunt, and pop fences in style.
