Hi, I’m Sky and I stand at a proud 14.2hh.Sadly my mum is writing this as my current loaner moved home at the end of July, so I’m on the lookout a new partner in crime.
I’m a typical Irishman – cheeky, fun, great company and drop dead gorgeous! My current loaner was up here on a year’s work placement and together we’ve had some great times so I’m really sad to be seeing her go home. I’d like a lightweight rider who’s confident and kind. I’d like someone who can give me a pat of reassurance when I'm nervous or a bit of a 'come on' when I need it. I can be a little nervous and spooky at times - especially if something at the yard has changed around a bit!
I LOVE to jump… I’d try jump the moon if I could! XC, SJ, WH, Arena eventing, I love it all and my dressage is coming along nicely too scoring in the high 60’s at prelim level. I’m also a polite and sensible hunter - bold over jumps and ditches. If you want to grow in confidence when jumping – I’m your man! I’ve recently been helping a young girl of just 9 years old regain her confidence jumping.
If my mum has friends over that have never ridden before she will always trust me to look after them when she takes them for a ride around the farm… I guess what I’m trying to say is I can be calm and steady, but also step it up a gear if you give me the go ahead!
I also love to hack with a friend for company, but I’m a bit nervous when I go alone. Mum is working on this, and I’m getting there with a lot of encouragement. Luckily, it’s a busy yard and there are always people to hack with at the yard. I travel well in both trailers and wagons… my mum has transport so can take us places if we wish.
I’m based at Swanland in East Yorkshire, and I love it here so would like to stay – there’s great facilities and we can have hours of fun hacking without even leaving the land! If you’d like to come and meet me, please get in touch.
She’ll be looking for a £120 per month contribution for half loan (all other costs covered), or to talk about the possibility of full loan. Stable duties are up to you – Mum will always cover them, but if you want to do some too then that is fine too.
Please contact for videos of me in action!
*update* recently been SJ schooling at bishop burton and was sensible and brave and found the jumps effortless.
Please no timewasters, Sky is now re advertised due to this. He will not be moving yards unless I personally know the YO and was very local, a lot of work has been put into this pony to help him overcome his nervousness and I am very protective over who he'd go too.
