Ash is a 13hh 15 year old gelding whom we have owned for 6 years. He was originally bought for my daughter who had 2 very successful seasons showing him. Since then we have been reluctant to sell and he has been out on lease. He is a genuine and safe all round pony that comes with a “fan club” of previous jockeys.
He is good to catch, load, travel, shoe, clip, bath, groom etc. and up to date with jabs & worming. He enjoys being turned out in the field and happy to be both out alone or in company.
He does not require lunging and can be jumped straight on no matter how long it has been since he was last ridden. He is exceptionally well-schooled, no napping, light in the mouth, and can be ridden in a snaffle or double bridle. He goes forward in a correct outline with balanced paces. He is a big mover, has an amazing stride in trot and also a great gallop – lowers & goes but always mannerly & easily comes back. He can be forward going but not strong. He doesn’t buck or rear.
He excels in show & show hunter pony classes and has competed at county level and qualified numerous times for HOYS & RIHS. (He was 2nd at HOYS in 2007 in the show pony class). He is registered part-bred arab. He has a good pop over a fence and although this is something we have not done with him I’m sure it is something that he could easily adapt to.
Unfortunately, as much as I would love to keep him we just do not have a jockey for him and it is such a loss for him not to be ridden & enjoyed. He now needs a competent & ambitious jockey to go and have some fun with him.
Please no time wasters or absolute beginners. Five star home required and more important than price.
