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.

Future

We believe Pickit has a great future either as a showjumping pony or as an eventer. She does a tidy dressage test and will take a young aspiring rider up the classes.

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.

John’s Choice

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.

Lux Z Boy

Lux Z Boy a 5yr old (*2013) bay Gelding by Lux Z – Cavalier Royale 165cm.

Lux Z Boy is a real looker with his white blaze and deep bay colour. He continues to impress with fabulous flowing movements and a very scopey jump. In addition he is very careful and loves to clear his fences. Furthermore he rides in a nice outline and would do a good dressage test.

Jumping career

We always attempt to school over a variety of fences both show jumps and across country hence we go to a selection of outdoors and indoors venues with different fences. By doing this, Lux Z Boy is continuously subjected to a huge selection of “looky looky” fences such as water complexes, ditches, water trays etc etc. This is proving to us again and again that he is focused on the task and does not easily get distracted. The willingness to learn and the great trust in the rider makes his potential and scope for jumping and eventing very high.

Shows

This glorious horse has started his showjumping career very well.  He has already clocked up 16 SJI points to date. This feat has been done in very few shows.  We are currently jumping at 1.10m level and are looking to move up shortly. We are in no hurry with this horse as we believe there are great things to come. Following link brings you to his Showjumping Ireland page where you can find his show jumping results.

https://www.sji.ie/Schedule/Search/Animals/Animal-Results/key/tD17De0oWK5dl3Vxb__fOw%3d%3d

Temperament

This horse is an absolute saint to handle! Working with him and around him is a joy and it feels safe and easy. All aspects included such as loading, washing, clipping, shoeing, grooming etc, there is nothing that presents as a problem. He is also an easy catch in the field. Lux Z Boy is an alert horse that responds well but even though he has the necessary spark to shine in the show ring he still keeps calm and makes no big deal of going to shows or new places schooling.

Future

Showjumping is a given for this talented horse. However it is our belief that because of his versatility he would be very well suited as an event horse. During XC schooling he shows his bravery and straight forwardness along with great scope. A horse that takes it all in his stride and definitely has a huge talent for the sport.

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.

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.
