    Ollie is 9 years old, registered welsh section C (green passport) chestnut gelding, 13.2, quite a slight pony, and so it’s just starting to show that my daughter, at 13, is getting too big for him.

    In the time we have had Ollie, my daughter has gone from a rider with her confidence in tatters, to the rider she is today; competing in arena eventing, doing XC clinics (on a BE 80 course alongside adults), British Show-jumping, along with unaffiliated show jumping pretty much every week. Hes tackled ditches, banks, logs, brush fences etc. We regularly take him for a gallop on the beach, and she has recently done her first pony club camp with him, along with all other pony club rallies. Honestly, this has been down to what Ollie has given her. He is a fun, forward thinking pony. He is never sharp, and is very kind natured; he has never ever bucked, reared, bitten or kicked. He is fantastic in traffic, and does not bat an eyelid hacking out alone. He stands perfectly to be clipped, for the dentist, farrier etc.
    During our time with Ollie, he has shown that he loves to jump, and he rides a mean jump off! In show jumping it’s a rare occasion when My daughter isn’t placed, she has a wall full of rosettes in the relatively short time we’ve had Ollie (attached pic is all rosettes from Ollie gradually progressing to the latest long run of 1st places). He regularly competes at 75cm, but at pony club camp and at home he has been over 100cm. When we first got him as my daughter was building up her confidence she started out with 45cm events, and he’ll do this with his eyes closed, not needing the same level of rider input as he does over the bigger jumps.
    Apparently, with his previous owners, he got good comments from the judges when showing him in hand in M&M classes, although we’ve never done any in hand showing with him. I have also spoken to his owner previous to this, who had him for some time, and his jockey then was a 10 year old boy who absolutely loved to hunt with him, which I’m told he excelled in (their words ‘he flew over all jumps and behaved impeccably’ ). He has lovely paces and loves to jump. He has shown a passion for XC especially, and is not at all fazed by water.

    He is forward going, but DOES have good brakes. This has suited us absolutely perfectly as after finding her feet for the first month or so, my daughter certainly would not enjoy a kick along, but she needed to build up her confidence again on a pony she could stop. She is now regularly to be found flying round the field on him bareback with just a head collar and lead rope on (!?!)
    So, the things to be aware of with Ollie to make an informed decision. He can be fast, especially on a jump off, and at first this made my daughter nervous, but as she got confidence that this was a fun fast and not a scary fast, she has come to love this about him. His safe but forward approach has really enabled her riding and competing to come on quickly. He does have different gears, and we’ve recently made a bit change, which has allowed My daughter in her lessons to be able to access these much better. He can occasionally need a firm hand on the ground, e.g. if he sees some particularly tasty grass he'd like to head off to, he can be strong then, but he's really great to handle, my daughter gets him in, tacks him up and loads him by herself.
    This is a very sad sale, and I am very keen that Ollie goes to the right home. Unfortunately I will not consider loans or trials, but we do have an arena at home for trying as many times as required.
