Update - has now been hunting, proving sensible, happy to stand etc and he enjoyed it.
Oliver is a willing, honest, and fun-loving pony. Adored by many, Ollie loves attention and is looking for five star home where he can continue to have fun.
He is clever and careful over showjumps, and has a lovely rhythm around a course - currently jumping 80/85 courses easily. He has jumped up to 1.10cm over a single fence, and round a course of 80-90cm. Furthermore, he is straight and bold cross country, with seemingly endless scope and ability. Oliver is capable of producing a nice dressage test, he is forward, straight, rhythmical and obedient. He works in a soft natural outline and responds well to the leg aids. He has numerous placing in working hunter classes with a young rider. He is clean limbed, a lovely type, and an unusual colour which stands out from the crowd.
He is responsive, snaffle mouthed, and has a safe and sensible outlook on life - we have never found him to be spooky or silly. He is good in traffic and hacks alone or in company, and will go in front or behind.
At 13.3hh, Oliver carries the leg well; the rider in the pictures is 5ft7. He would suit a competent competitive young rider who wants to compete and have fun. He loves his job, so must go to a competitive home where he can continue to compete and enjoy life.
Oliver is low maintenance, being barefoot and coping well. He lives in or out, and with geldings or mares. He is a good doer and is good to handle. His vaccinations are up to date.
He won PWPC hunter trials at 60cm, Brent Pelham hunter trials at 80cm, placed in several ODEs, qualified for PC dengie league dressage, did 3 Tetworth hunter trials and placed each time all with a young rider (from when she was eight to eleven years old). This year he did the Bloom cup 75cm ODE and placed fourth with a 33 dressage and double clear. He competed at the 2016 Gosling Cup (85cm ODE) and finished with the 3rd best dressage, a clear round XC, and an unlucky pole SJ.
I know that Oliver will make someone very happy, and I really want him to be out, doing what he loves and reaching his full potential. So please, no novices, nervous riders or time wasters as this one in a million pony will go to a five star home only.
