'Blackie' is a superstar pony who has given my daughter so much confidence and fun over the past 2 years and brought her on from jumping 60cms to 95cm tracks with consistent success. Schools over 1.05 at home but we have not competed him at or above 1m though he competed at this height and above with his previous owner.
Fast and nimble in a jump-off, Blackie has scope and speed to jump off any stride and from all kinds of angles. Honest and unfazed by all sorts of fillers, water trays, WHP ducks or beehives. Bold and brave XC he jumps everything and has no issues with water or ditches.
Blackie has an excellent track record in PC dressage qualifying for the Dengie regionals for a number of years and going through to the Nationals in 2012 (coming 12th at Novice level overall). For the past two years he has qualified for and competed at the Addington NPS dressage championships, this year placing 6th overall in both the prelim and the novice test.
Blackie has many wins and placings at PC ODEs at level 1 and 2 with both his current and previous owner. He often has Best Dressage and generally goes double clear. He has completed the Stonar schools ODE 3 times, coming 5th in May this year with a double clear and low 30s dressage out of an arena of 40.
Alongside his competition record he also has the temperament of a family pet - ridden around our fields at home bareback, dressed up in costume for our PC branch musical ride at the PC champs and for the Emilie Faure Foundations 'Strictly come dressage' (his picture is on their website - look for the Harry Potter lookalike!). As he is sensitive and talented he is not suitable for someone learning to ride, but is ideal for a 7-10 year old child who is already balanced over a reasonable course of fences and wants to go out and compete.
He is good to hack out alone or in company, good to box, shoe, clip, teeth etc and is easily handled by a child having no vices in or out of the stable. He genuinely is a very honest, kind pony.
