Experienced in - showing / WH / Eventing optional / proven jumper

I am a light weight experienced adult seeking either a large M&M (Connemara preferred) or small sports horse / all-rounder to compete at a reasonable level – Workers, hunter trials, some showing.

To be kept at a very experienced 5 star professional yard in Suffolk with only the best care & training. I have had many horses / ponies over the years, competing at both local & county shows.

I have recently had a break after my last to raise my family & balance my career. I am now looking for that special pony/horse to look after me & enjoy competing again. Due to being a working mum the time I will have to spend with them will be precious so the right horse is essential.

He/She will be loved & treated as our own & will not want for anything. Any age considered.

I do mind anything strong and keen however must be safe, well-mannered with a kind / safe temperament. No bolters/buckers/rearers. Safe to hack, handle, load etc

Ideally someone who has “been there, done that” , a school master who loves to jump & who isn’t phased by anything. I’m not necessarily looking to jump huge but would like to know I will get round.

I know my wish list is a long one but if you have that horse/pony out there please call me for a chat. References available if required.

Super Future Competition Prospect

Ref #: 174588
  • Reg Class 1, Irish Bred, Excellent Bloodlines
  • Talented all Round Family Pony
  • Snaffle mouth
  • Connemara
  • Grey
  • Mare
  • 5 years
  • 14 hands
  • Reg Class 1, Irish Bred, Excellent Bloodlines
  • Talented all Round Family Pony
  • Snaffle mouth

This lovely pony has been brought on slowly over the winter and spring and has proven to be a quick learner, very trainable, bold and showing huge potential over a fence when XC & SJ Schooling.

Totally unspoiled genuine novice with snaffle mouth, she has a delightful and sweet nature and only wants to please. She has excellent confirmation and good movement.

She is good to catch, in traffic, with farrier,vet & dentist. Goes in trailer or lorry. No stable vices. Vaccinations up to date.

We have shown her lightly in hand and she is only for sale now as a recent move has meant we no longer have jockey based locally to get her out and about.

A kind, knowledgeable long term home where she can continue her training and start her career in earnest, is a priority.

Correctly educated, this charming pony has the scope and ability to make a top class RIHS / HOYS standard WHP and / or super PC Eventer.

No Dealers.

Rules for Showing

Prospective purchasers of Connemara ponies should be aware that under BCPS Rules for showing – ‘No Connemara exceeding 148cm may be shown or take part in any competition restricted to Connemara or Registered Mountain and Moorland ponies within the jurisdiction of the BCPS.’

‘Where it is reported to the Society that this may have occurred then the Society may require the animal to be measured or re-measured in accordance with the Rules of the Joint Measurement Scheme -

The penalty for the contravention of the above Rule may be cancellation of the registration of the animal concerned

They should also realise that both the Irish and British Connemara Societies register ponies under a classification system. Briefly, all foals are registered as Class 3. Adult ponies (2 years and over) – Stallions and Mares – are registered in Class 1 if they pass a visual and Veterinary inspection, and as Class 2 if they fail the visual, but pass the Vet, or are over or under height, or blue eyed creams, and as Class 3 if they fail the Vet or have not been inspected

The progeny of Class 3 ponies remain in Class 3 and cannot be upgraded
