Kilcorban Cool Hazel has done the lot, amongst others jumping, eventing, pony club, dressage, hunter trials etc etc. She has been brought on carefully and she has been well ridden and schooled by her owner. The pony has seen a wide variety of fences both cross country and showjumping. She is a very honest pony and does not shy from jumping anything. Hazel rides out in group and alone and there are no issues with traffic. Hazel is currently jumping courses of fences at 1-1.10m level and she has plenty in the tank to do more.

Hazel loves grooming time and is easy to do in all aspects of care. This including washing, clipping, shoeing, loading into lorry/ trailer, catching in field etc etc. She is controllable and sensible to ride yet an alert pony with the right amount of “sensitive”.

We believe Hazel is a lovely, quality pony with a bright future destined to go far in the right hands. Hazel has a scopey jump and 3 good gaits. She will excel at eventing or showjumping or as a top pony for the more discerning riding school.

Future

We believe that Silver is very well suited as a hunt horse, he is reliable and safe yet very eye catching and with his 17’2 in height he provides a good view.

This horse would also suit as an eventer or ridden hunter.

Jackpot Joey

Beautiful gelding by 5* Nations cup stallion KEC Maximum Joe out of a mare. Joey is born in 2012 (6years in 2018), 165cm. (Link to the respective stallion showjumping).

horse loosejumping
Loosejumping

Joey was broken to ride as a 4 year old but was then turned away due to personal circumstances. He has now been brought back into work and has settled really well.

Joey is riding well and is ready to be brought out to some competitions shortly. He also works well on the ground and could well do dressage.

This horse is subjected to a range of fences, both xc and sj. He is keen to jump and does not worry about how the fence looks. He rides out in group or alone.

Handling

There are never any problems with handling this horse, clipping, loading, washing, loading or shoeing no problems!!

 

Future

We believe Joey has a good and athletic jump that together with his psyche and willingness to jump could bring him far in the sport. He could also suit as an eventer. Joey is indeed a very suitable name as he has a very springy and scopey jump just like a joey (baby kangaroo).

Film and further photos to follow shortly.

Abilities

Just such a pretty boy!

Foxhall Diggit is one of those seldom seen saints! He is absolutely kindness personified. He tries his very best and even if the rider fails he still does everything in his power to help. This is the real babysitter pony. Having said this, he has still got the capacity to jump bigger fences and the courage of going cross country. Diggit rides out alone and in company and is used to traffic, farm equipment etc etc. He is also used to a wide variety of fences both cross country and showjumps.

Shows and competitions

Diggit has hunted a lot with his previous owner and has also done cross country and showjumping at local shows. There is never a problem travelling with Diggit, he takes everything in his stride and remains calm at shows etc.

Future

We feel that Diggit would suit someone who wants to improve their riding skills and go competing at shows both eventing and jumping. He would also suit for hunting where he really cares for his rider. Diggit would suit very well for a riding school as well.

Marilyn´s Mist

Marilyn´s Mist
Marilyn´s Mist
Marilyn´s Mist

Marilyn’s Mist foaled in 2012, currently registed with no pedigree (The piebald and skewbald association).

Misty has had a real glossy year 2017 competing at 1,10m level, currently on 44 SJI points (19/11/2017), this achieved with relatively few starts. Misty has been accompanied by Conor Leahy for most of the year reaching the finals of the Millstreet 5 year old championships.

We are currently introducing a new rider Thie Jones who will continue to compete Misty as Conor is on to horses next year.

We believe that Misty is destined for future true greatness. She is very careful and takes pride in doing her best 100% of the time. Big fences is not a problem, she is very brave and her heart is well and truly in it.

Temperament. Misty is a real cool customer, a comparatively easy ride, she is also a dream to care for and to have around. There are no issues, everything is just plain straight forward.
