Jack is a 17 year old 14’2 Irish sports pony. He is an experienced eventer that has had a full competition life and has excelled as a cross country pony. He oozes presence and is enthusiastic about life and everything he does. He loves a varied life and looks forward to going out and about. He goes nicely on the flat and enjoys his jumping. Jack is very good to hack, alone or in company and is happy to go first or last, he is very good in traffic. He is polite and safe in open spaces and has been on beach/fun rides. He is good to load and travel both in a horse box and trailer. Jack is up to date with his vaccinations, worming and teeth. He is good to catch, clip and with the farrier. Jack is a pleasure to own, he is happy to live out and can be turned out with mares or geldings.
Jack has a proven record at BE Novice level and went clear at the Pony Club Tet 2019 Championships.
We have only owned Jack for 8 months and spent time getting to know him. He has recently put in a few stops with my daughter which has resulted in her losing her confidence in him. These may be because he needs a stronger more experienced rider, however after some investigations with my vet it appears he has some wear and tear to a couple of joints. I therefore feel that Jack would benefit from a slightly quieter life with less jumping, concentrating on dressage and hacking. Alternatively, a new owner could work with their vet to medicate his joints and spend sometime regaining his confidence in jumping. I will be happy to discuss his requirements further with serious enquiries.
