John’s Choice

Gelding born in 2007, bay, 148cm.

This is a fabulously positive pony, he just loves life and lives to please. He definately deserves the very best in life. He jumps tracks of 1.10-1.20 easily and can do a tidy dressagetest. He is the kindest in the stable with lovely manners, keen to cuddle and loves a good scratch (good to handle in all ways including loading, clipping, washing, grooming and catching in the field).img_7552

We believe he suits someone who would love to compete and have rosettes to show for it. He could also suit ridingschool.img_7518

So to the catch…. There is possibly a trotter in the breeding somewhere which can be seen when the pony gets too much in a hurry. We have though seen that with a bit of groundwork this disappears. In any case it does not affect his ability to jump!

We believe he would be very well suited as an event horse and he has been schooled over a variety of xc fences. He takes it all in his stride and definitely has a huge talent for the sport.

He is an absolute saint to handle and is easy in every way possible (loading, washing, clipping etc.)

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.
