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.
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).
We believe he suits someone who would love to compete and have rosettes to show for it. He could also suit ridingschool.
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!
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.
