Romeo is a 4yo dapple grey registered Connemara gelding by HOYS finalist & multiple show champion Moyabbey George and out of an I Love You Melody mare.

I bought Romeo in Ireland last summer as a 3 yo and he has become my best friend! He is an absolute pleasure to deal with in every way, he has an exceptional temperament and is very intelligent.

Romeo has been slowly and correctly produced. He is working beautifully on the flat and has three balanced paces. He is a fantastic jumper and is very bold and brave. He has jumped all sorts of fences and is often used to lead our other youngsters! He has never stopped at anything that has been put in front of him - both XC (including steps and ditches) and coloured fences.

Romeo has been shown in hand as a 3yo winning on both occasions and standing Champion. He has been shown under saddle for education, competed unaffiliated SJ & Dressage and also attended fun rides.

He is completely unfazed away from home and will travel alone or in company. I often take him out by myself with no help and he really is a dream to deal with.

Romeo is completely snaffle mouthed and excellent in traffic including tractors and farm machinery.

He has done plenty of hacking over lots of different terrain and we often encounter sheep, deer, cows, dog walkers etc. He has also been ridden and jumped by children therefore has an ever growing fan club!

Romeo really has become part of the family and I will be very sad to see him go. However he is ready to find his forever home where he can continue to fulfil his potential. He would be a fantastic mother/daughter share.

Romeo has a huge future in any sphere - WHP, ODE, Showing, Dressage etc.

Flu vacs, teeth and back all up to date with no issues. His passport is over stamped by the British Connemara Pony Society. Never been sick or sorry, happy to provide veterinary records and he is open to vetting.

I cannot speak highly enough of this beautiful kind pony and I have no doubt that the first person to view will buy.

Home is more important than price.

No time wasters or canvassers as this is a sad sale. Photos & videos can be viewed on the YouTube link attached to this advert.

Beautiful Dun/ buckskin gelding about 15.1h now but should make 15.2h

I backed him myself lightly in the new year at home and he’s been walked and trotted under saddle.

He’s long reined and lunged but now turned away, ready for somebody to restart and have fun and make their own unicorn

He’s not suitable for a nervous or novice person due to his age and experience

Happy to answer any questions

Good to trim. Walks up to you in the field

Wormed. Teeth done recently and wolf teeth removed last year

Good to load in trailer or lorry. I clipped him by myself

Sad unexpected sale of a much loved boy

Cracking 6yr old full Connemara gelding - 151cm Bay by Tynagh Miller with Maam Hero and Westside Mirah lines.

This pony has been a complete pleasure to own. I purchased him in May 2020 as my ‘lockdown project’ - I spent the first few months doing all the groundwork with him, and then he was professionally broken in.

No expense has been spared in producing him.  He’s been professionally schooled for jumping once a week, and I’ve had dressage lessons with him once a week as well as being schooled by a dressage rider.

Up to date with physio, farrier (excellent feet) dentist and vaccinations. Clean legs and no injuries.

Everyone loves him and he’s a pleasure to have on the yard. Lives out, or happy stabled, turned out in a large mixed herd, a perfect gentleman, never sick or sorry and hasn’t put a foot wrong with me.

More a push on than pull ride, and would prefer a light rider with a good hand. He’s perfect to hack on his own and in company, doesn’t buck, rear, nap, loads and travels brilliantly. Used to farm machinery and fine on the minor roads I ride on. Loads and travels like a dream. Hacks next to the M1 and a busy train line no problem. He can have a little jump/leap out of joie de vive in the first canter out on a big group ride, but nothing nasty and has never unseated me.

No vices etc.

Been to the gallops, placed at showing, combined training, show jumping, HT trials and XC schooled. Attended sponsored rides, training camps and beach rides where he has been impeccably behaved. Always a joy and brings a smile to your face. He would suit a competent small adult or young rider who wants a quality pony to do a bit of everything with. Easy to a fence and doesn’t say no. He doesn’t have the scope for bigger tracks, so would not suit a home looking for a +90cm jumper

Only for sale as sadly he hasn’t made the height for me

Although he’s been good as gold with me, due to his age he still takes confidence from his rider and would suit a competent knowledgeable home. No novices as he is still young and is used to a balanced rider and can still have the odd spook/look but nothing nasty. We have also found that he doesn’t like big, unbalanced or flappy riders! Typical cheeky Connemara character so sense of humour required and likes a quiet, tactful rider

Hoof wall tested clear - Has some old fly bites on his shoulders that are raised (fur all grown back) has never bothered him

Private 5* home only

Can be seen on sales livery in Hertfordshire

One of the most exciting, talented and genuine young connemaras I have ever had the opportunity to produce.

I bought Rebel as a 2 rising 3yr old. Produced him slowly with his future in mind. He carries prescence, oozes look at me attitude combined with a love to please and a clear understanding of correct training. He is now out and competing and showing his huge potential.

He really impressed at BD clinics with three beautiful, rhythmic paces and can do attitude. He’s been placed unaffiliated prelim dressage and will easily progress BD.

He adores jumping and has already shown he’s a top prospect for WHP, BE grassroots, pony classes. His technique is superb, has a big, clean jump and so brave and genuine.

Rebel has jumped dbl clears SJ and placed every time out so far. XC he’s easily jumping a 80-90cm track with confidence to water, ditches, steps etc. He has all the ability to be a future Badminton grassroots pony / FEI and he will not over height.

Rebel has also gained experience out hunting with the Middleton this season and has been a total gentleman. He s completely snaffle mouthed, sensible to hack alone or in company and a pleasure to do with in every way.

He is entered up for ODE, WHPs in the coming weeks and is a super prospect for a teenager/small adult to have a huge future with.
