Irish Sports Pony, Bay, Gelding, 6 years, 14.2 hands
"Clifford is a very smart, talented pony as well as being the cutest pony I’ve come across! Loves to lie down and happy to be suffocated by the kid’s cuddles. He’s been slowly and carefully produced which has led to a brilliantly mannered, safe and very enjoyable little dude! The whole yards favourite, always first to put his head over the door in the morning to say hello
He has recently competed in his first ODE, going straight in at BE90, a testament to his trustworthy character. A very respectable dressage of 32.5, a near miss on riders Satnav in the SJ lead to one pole down and as expected a very bold clear in the XC. Clifford wouldn’t ever let you down, a pony you can really rely on. Not to go over kill on the clichés, but he really is a mother/ trainer/ child’s dream! Safe, genuine, willing and talented – everything on the wish list!
Regularly been out competing at unaffiliated show jumping, combined training and fun rides etc. Never spooky or backs off at any fillers or situations. Has always proved to be as calm and sensible out, as he is at home, will happily stand in the middle of the yard by himself while he’s tarted up. Hunted lightly last season and completely unfazed. Very careful, scopey jump but reassuringly realistic. No unnecessary launches over poles on the floor. Will happily jump from any stride when required. Recently ridden and competed by amateur 14yr old girl, so not going to expect a professional. Clifford would never take advantage of a nervous or inexperienced rider. Faultless to hack. Snaffle mouthed in all three phases
Good strong legs, with one small splint, but otherwise very good and clean. As you can expect he’s good to clip, shoe, catch and load etc. Very low maintenance, lives in or out, individually or with others. Full five stage vetting in Oct 2014. Full trial facilities available, nothing to hide as he really has been faultless. The only time he’s scared me has been when he looked like he might try and sit on the quad and take it for a spin when he helps me poo pick in the mornings!
He really is one in a million, first to try will not only buy but fall in love him as everyone here has done! Clearly a loving home is important for this little guy. Lots and lots of pictures available on request
