Welsh Section A, Grey, Gelding, 10 years, 122 centimetres
HE HUNTS, EVENTS, DRESSAGE, SHOWJUMPS AND WHP!!!
Registered welsh section A 12 hand 8 year old grey gelding. He has perfect stable manners, loads himself, an angel for the farrier, turned out with any horse or pony, hacks alone or in company and is never ever sick or sorry.
Stan has done 2 seasons hunting with Rockwood Harriers and 1 season with Ludlow; jumping dry stone walls, wire, post and rail, hedges and anything else thrown at him! Never stops, never lets you down, no ground to deep or firm, no country too difficult for him! He is perfect for a child wanting to keep up with the big kids! Always snaffle mouthed.
Stan is a seasoned eventer ALWAYS high 20’s/ low 30's dressage, careful, honest SJ and skips round the XC. Currently competed in 80 classes, will easily do 90’s!
He has show jumped at all the local agricultural shows, Pony Club and NSEA over the full up 75cm & 85cm tracks (once again the smallest one!) he has plenty scope for more and affiliation will be no issue as he schools up to 1 metre! He is such an honest jumper, will jump out of a bad stride and do his best to leave the pole up too! (Children aren’t always the best ‘stride seekers’!)
As his eventing results show, he is a beautiful dressage pony, proving himself again, as he is the current NSEA Shropshire County Prelim Dressage Champion!
WORKING HUNTER PONY:
He is a beautiful stamp of a 122cm WHP, having several judges say he is absolutely top class, he is so balanced, so straight, so careful and scopey, and he will take on any open track with ease.
No, he does NOT weave box walk, crib bite or any of the rest of it! But he has a slightly nervous disposition, so with new riders, he needs someone who will happily give him a stroke when he worries and tell him they’re not going to hurt him! He also hates he riders hands getting very high, as he thinks he will get hit, so it is important that the rider can keep their hands where he can’t see them (where they should be anyway!), once you have his trust and friendship, he is your friend for life and always, always tries his absolute hardest for you!
