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.

Mick (sold)

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 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.

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.
