Touchy Subject – a showjumper for the very biggest of classes
Touchy Subject truly is a fabulous young pony. Born in 2012, he is 8 this year (2020), he is measuring full up the stick 148cm (measured for Irish Lifetime Height Certification 2020 which is stated in his passport). He has proved himself out and about and has so far gained 112 Showjumping Ireland points with many clear rounds at 1.10m level.
The pony – Touchy Subject
This pony knows how to jump and he does it with ease, scope and fabulous technique. It comes totally natural to him, 1.40m seems like a crosspole, no exaggerations needed. He competed at 1.10 level during 2019 and had lots of clear rounds. He is ready for 1.20 and was going out but as we all know COVID-19 stopped the season in its tracks. Touchy has jumped a variety of fences both cross country and showjumps and comes across as very brave and he does not look at anything.
In the stable
Cool as a cucumber. He just stands there whilst you fiddle about with the clippers, brushes, shampoo and everything else you might want to do. He is also good with the farrier, good to load and easy to catch in the field. Touchy is really sweet tempered and is a joy to be around.
The Future is bright for Touchy Subject
We believe this pony is the ONE! He skips over a course of fences at 1.40m so could easily jump around the European Championships. The question is, are you the lucky rider to accompany him? We are hoping for a rider with real interest and desire to reach the top level of pony jumping.
