British Warmblood, Bay, Gelding, 11 years, 147 centimetres (AHC)
Roo (Risque Rooney) is a stunning British Warmblood gelding. 147cm and 11 years old in 2015
He has only had two homes and has been completely home produced by children. His full history is known. Never schooled or jumped by professionals or adults, he is the ultimate child's pony. He has 165 Foundation points and 8 BE points. We were lucky enough to find Roo when Zara was 11 and he has taken her from BE90 (a win and three seconds) up through BE100 (a joint win and a second) to her first Novice when she was just 12 years old, and to pony trials aged 13
He really is an absolute gem and this is a heartbreaking sale. He has been clear around 9 Novices now, including Weston Park Pony 3DE as a seven year old, finishing twenty seconds under the time. He is now really coming into his prime. He is bold and straight XC, having been trained by Caroline Moore since he was four years old. There is a video of him training on her website, caroline-moore.com under her clinics page. He has attended many FEI pony trainings including the FEI pony camp last summer. He is always much admired, he is the most stunning pony
He is very well schooled on the flat. With his previous owner he was trained weekly by Judy Bradwell. He can produce a rhythmical soft, supple test. He has 32 BD points and won the Novice 22 at College of West Anglia affiliated on 17th January in good company. His grand sire is Rubenstein, hence his good movement. There is a flat video of his previous owner schooling him on You Tube. Search Risque Rooney for Sale, although he has matured and bulked up since this was taken.
He is very quick XC, can easily get too fast time faults at BE100 if not careful, as he eats the ground and never alters his rhythm. He is very quick and very clever. He looks for the flags and the commentators nickname him the pocket rocket. He is ridden in a nathe bubble gag for jumping.
He is 100% to box clip shoe catch. He is very easy to do, he eats absolutely everything and is a real character, he will neigh whenever he sees you. He is possessive of his food so this is the only time you need to watch him as he is unbelievably greedy!!
He is always jolly, loves to work and will outwalk any horse. He is fit, 100% sound, and he does not have any special supplements, potions or injections! He is very easy to get and to keep fit, he is a blood pony, very light on his feet and gallops so easily.
He has been a member of our family and he really deserves another family with an ambitious child to enjoy him and love him as much as we all have. His best is still to come, he really is, at 11 years old, coming into his prime. He is experienced, knows his job and loves to work. He is a total gem, and is the perfect pony to introduce a child to eventing and bring them up the ranks. It is very sad sale of an absolutely adored pony. But Zara is now 5'7 and with ever increasing school work, and school sports fixtures we have decided it is not possible to compete a horse and a pony in 2015 and beyond. Not without everything else suffering. 10 star homes only for this beloved pony
He comes with his full wardrobe, including his Butet XC saddle and bridle, rugs and all his boots. Ideally we are looking for a confident capable child that is really ready to fly. Roo is exceptionally talented and he needs a young jockey to match him
He is clipped, fit, registered and ready to go. He won the Open ODE at Keysoe on 25th January. He is ready to give another lucky family a wonderful time. Genuine enquiries only as this is a very sad sale
