With a lot of thought and heartache we have decided to put our beloved Marty up for sale. We have only had him since September but since then he has been adored by all of us a true member of our family. Marty is a stunning Irish grey sports pony who does have a slight Arab in him too. When we bought Marty his previous family were competing with him most weekends. Doing all aspects of PC and would regularly do XC on him. He was comfortably jumping 1m and always coming home with a ribbon.
When Marty arrived with us we decided to let him settle and we were hacking and light Schooling for the first few weeks to let my daughter and him bond and get to know each other. After this we introduced a jump and to our amazement Marty did not want to know. After eliminating his back, teeth, saddle etc and having numerous instructors, we feel maybe that he has lost his love for jumping. He has been over a few jumps recently and is definitely improving but as a full time nurse and being on a livery yard with not the best facilities I just don’t have the time to get him going again. This boy is amazing on the road, loves a good gallop but is super safe. Will hack alone or in company and would be a great mother daughter share. He has also been excelling in dressage over the last few months with weekly lessons from a local top Eventer instructor.
Marty will live in or out, great with other ponies. He just loves people and lots of fuss. Great to shoe, load but will need a light sedation when clipped (previous owners told us this but we didn’t clip him as his coat is quite fine and felt it wasn’t needed) he can be a little head shy in stable but soon softens when he gets to know you. Marty will come with all tack and rugs. Please only genuine enquiries as this is a very sad sale. I can send videos of him jumping on request. Many thanks Mary ...Read full description
