    Super Versatile Pony

    HorsesAll Rounders£ 8,500Lola

    We never thought we’d be doing this, but after a fantastic four year partnership, it’s time to find a new little, lightweight, jockey for our pony of a lifetime


    This pony has had a crack at everything and put her heart and soul into everything we’ve asked of her

    144.5cm LHC (14’2 on passport)

    Appaloosa mare (not remotely marish, nicest temperament you could wish for)

    15 year old - low mileage for her age. Had done very little when we bought her, so don’t be put off by her age. Full history known from the age of 5

    Jumps consistently clear at 90cm - 1m, week in, week out (can and has jumped higher but in the interests of absolute honesty, 1m is her comfort zone. She’ll take a jockey round 1m with ease). She loves a jump off and can do the turns

    She’s not remotely spooky SJ, will jump any filler, water trays, skinnies, rustics, spreads etc. Fireworks could go off, she’d take no notice. She’ll go as fast or as steady as jockey is asking her

    Daughter has literally 100’s of rosettes from her

    She’s been to British Show Jumping National Championships 2017, 2018 & 2019, placing 5th in the 90cm & the 1m Schools League Championship in 2019 (she has a BS record with 671 points)

    Cross country, she’s a machine, jumping BE100 fences with ease. She will jump brushes, ditches, goes straight through water without any hesitation. Completely safe in open spaces, has never bolted or been silly

    Show Cross, I don’t think she’s ever not been placed jumping 1m and 1.05m often against horses

    Hunter Trials, has competed and been placed at Breckenbrough Hunter Trial

    Hunting, she has hunted with the hounds and behaved absolutely impeccably, stands like a rock at a meet. She’s brilliant in company of other horses, has never kicked or bit

    Showing, we’ve had a go in the past and she qualified for BSPS Working Hunter in our Area

    Loads and travels like a dream, won’t stand on the box but will stand tied up all day

    Comes straight in from the field, meets you at the gate, has never not been caught, takes no catching, will be there to meet you, telling you to hurry up

    Is a lamb in the stable, you can muck out around her and put your hand in the bucket when she’s eating - she doesn’t have a bad bone in her

    Very easy to handle and be around, imagine a big dog. She’s lovely around little kids too, has been ridden competitively by a 9 year old and a 10 year old and really looked after them

    I cannot emphasise enough what a lovely temperament she has, she’s been my daughters best friend, you can trust her implicitly

    I think she’d make a cracking little eventer but daughter has zero interest in dressage

    Hacking - ok on her own and in company. Not remotely phased by any traffic, of any size, travelling at any speed. Takes no notice whatsoever

    Despite her nature, she’s a fast, forward & fizzy pony, so not suited to a novice. Whilst she’d completely look after someone less capable, she loves a job and needs a jockey as confident and keen as she is to go out there and have fun

    She’s fine with the farrier, has great feet and only has two front shoes (farrier actually said he’s her favourite pony to do)

    She’s ok with the dentist - teeth just done, no health issues

    She’s ok clipping as long as your fast, she isn’t patient being clipped (may need sedating, although we never have)

    She’s not a fan of the vet (ours jabs her in the chest, quick) - she’s up to date with all vaccinations

    We’ve absolutely loads of photos and videos

    We livery at an Equestrian Centre so have fantastic trial facilities

    Home is very important

    Asking price in very low five figures - she’s truly one in a million and worth every penny, you won’t find a more honest, versatile pony out there

    Please only enquire if you’re serious, this is really hard for us. If she was happy stood in a field, I’d happily leave her there, but she is bored and needs to be doing something, she’s fit and ready to go now that things are starting up again
