Foxhall Diggit

Foxhall Diggit (2008) 10 year old gelding, 148cm, piebald. Jumping / eventing pony.img_9056

Abilities

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. img_9053

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.img_8925

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.

Riding and Showing

This pony has been shown both in hand and under saddle and has won both. Ponies rarely come in a better package with a  combination of looks and a fabulous step and rideability. She cares for her rider and has that absolute star quality. Cheyene keeps her calm when out and about and is a dream to both ride and handle. At shows she knows how to strutt her stuff without getting hard to handle. This absolite Gem of a pony also has a great ability and mindset to jump, nothing fazes her. We continuously go to several different arenas therefore she is used to a variety of fences both cross country and showjumping.

Temperament

This is a very kind and stable pony. She is easy to load, clip, wash, lead etc etc. She is a real rock and has a very willing and ready to please attitude. we bring the ponies to all sorts of new environments and she remains the same pony, does not get over excited. Cheyene has been ridden regularly by 7 year old girl.

Future

This pony would suit someone interested in the Connemara breed. She would be the perfect broodmare or showmare. Cheyene is currently being ridden and is ready for new goals in her ridden career, jumping, dressage or eventing included.

John’s Choice (sold)

Jumping pony

Gelding born in 2007, bay, 148cm.

This is a fabulously positive jumping pony, he just loves life and lives to please. He definitely deserves the very best in life. He jumps tracks of 1.10-1.20 easily and can do a tidy dressage test.

Temperament

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!

Update 10/05/2018

We have no consciously been working with Johnny to improve his gaits and his understanding of aids. This has proven very productive as he now almost never shows any signs of his previous trottery manners. This will no doubt continue to improve and has furthermore cemented our love for him. He is just such a tryer! Impossible to not love.

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.
