Jackpot Joey

Beautiful gelding by 5* Nations cup stallion KEC Maximum Joe out of a Zirocco Blue mare. Joey is born in 2012 (6years in 2018), 165cm. (Link to the respective stallion showjumping).

Joey was broken to ride as a 4 year old but was then turned away due to personal circumstances. He has now been brought back into work and has settled really well.

Joey is riding well and is ready to be brought out to some competitions shortly. He also works well on the ground and could well do dressage.

This horse is subjected to a range of fences, both xc and sj. He is keen to jump and does not worry about how the fence looks. He rides out in group or alone.

Handling

There are never any problems with handling this horse, clipping, loading, washing, loading or shoeing no problems!!

Future

We believe Joey has a good and athletic jump that together with his psyche and willingness to jump could bring him far in the sport. He could also suit as an eventer. Joey is indeed a very suitable name as he has a very springy and scopey jump just like a joey (baby kangaroo).

Film and further photos to follow shortly.

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.

Lux Z Boy (sold)

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.

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.

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.
