Pedro

147cm palomino gelding born in 2012. Great jumping pony with adorable temperament

Abilities

Pedro is the golden boy. He just oozes kindness and truly has a heart đź’“ of gold. He combines a fabulous temperament with good looks and abilities to die for. Pedro is a well put together pony that moves very well and has an honest and very brave jump. He is scopey too so jumping comes easy to him.

Practice makes perfect!!

We are currently bringing Pedro to different showjumping and cross country courses for practice. He travels well and never gets upset at new venues. He is used to a huge selection of fences and it all comes very easy to him.

Future

We believe Pedro will climb the classes in both showjumping and eventing. He is the most wonderful fun pony with a golden future for the competitive rider.

Pickit

13’2 jumping/ eventing mare *2011

This little mare is sweet as candy. Willing to please with a scopey secure jump. Suits someone who aims to progress through the classes. Super temperament.

Temperament

This little sweetie is just the most precious little thing. All handling is easy as pie, nothing excluded (brushing, leading, washing, clipping, loading and catching in the field).

Riding

Pickit has seen most types of fences, both cross country and showjumping. She is very honest and jumps what you aim at. She has a very scopey jump and she moves very well. We have been to some different tracks with her and she is very easy to do in new environments.

Mick

Gelding 148cm, born in 2011.

Mick, a potential show jumping pony,  is most likely a thoroughbred/ pony cross. This pony is alert and loves to please. There is great potential as he jumps with great scope and moves very well. He has shown that there are plenty to come and we believe he will do well both as a show jumper and an eventer.

Jumping

We are currently schooling Mick over both show jumping and XC fences. He is very honest and is a very fast learner. Our pony rider has been to a few pay and jumps with good results and will shortly start going to bigger shows with Mick.

Temperament

Mick has a very nice temperament and he is so very kind to handle. There are never any issues with grooming, clipping, washing, shoeing or loading.  Mick goes out in the field alone or with other horses, he is one of those that just float around without causing any upset and when you want him he is easy to catch. He travels well and keeps his calm when ridden in new places.

Future

We believe Mick would suit competitive teenager who would like to go up through the grades.

Barnaboy Tina

Barnaboy Tina *2010, 15’2 (158cm) almost black.

What a wonderful pocket rocket! Barnaboy Tina is a seriously honest horse, that would excel at eventing / showjumping,  as a hack or due to her fabulous temperament she could become a sought after riding school horse.

Temperament

Her stable manners are impeccable and she is a treat to care for (brushing, clipping, washing, shoeing and loading). When at competitions, Barnaboy Tina remains calm and concentrated even though she is alert and responsive to aids.

At home Tina is an easy catch in the field which makes life so much easier around the yard.

Jumping , movement and rideability

Tina moves well and have a scopey jet secure jump.  She is easy to follow and is a straight forward ride.  Tina is ridden out both in company and on her own, she is therefor well used to tractors, dogs, traffic and other things that might be encountered when out and about. We make a point of going to different places for schooling hence Tina is used to a selection of spooky fences both XC and show jumps.

Shows and outings

This marvellous horse is the prefect combination of a schoolmistress and potential comtetition horse. She has done pony club, combined training, hunter trials, mini eventing, showjumping and dressage. Nothing phases her, she really wants to please!

Future

We believe Barnaboy Tina would suit as a junior Eventer or for someone who wants to perfect their skills at eventing or showjumping. Because Barnaboy Tina has got such a wonderful temperament she would also be suitable for a riding school.

Barnaboy Ann (Sold)

Barnaboy Ann, 148cm, foaled in , bay mare.

Barnaboy Ann

This is a seriously lovely pony. It is everything all wrapped into one. Annie has a great potential across country which has only partly been explored. She has evented, done ponyclub, showjumping and tried out dressage. Her forte is eventing and we believe she has the potential to go all the way. She easily jumps up to 1.10 – 1.15 and no type of fence fazes her.

Annie has hunted with amongst others The Grallagh Harriers and is very well liked for this job. She is very good with the hounds, is very surefooted and courageous.

Temperament. Annie is an angel, put a small kid on her back and she transforms into a family pony. She really takes care of her little riders. She is also extremely easy to do including clipping, washing, shoeing, loading etc etc.
