***Very sad sale of a very sweet and gentle natured pony who shows bags of promise***

"Romeo" aka Lizwell Romeo is a 13.1hh, grey roan who gains compliments everywhere he is taken. Romeo is a true Dartmoor Hill pony having been bought straight off the moors and has been slowly and kindly handled whilst being broken in over the last few years.

Despite being only 4 years old he is incredibly sensible and acts like a pony much older in years. Please don’t be put off by his age, he honestly is a safe and sensible pony who acts better than lots of 12 year olds I know. Romeo has been one of the easiest and best pony's we have had the pleasure of breaking in and has proven himself in almost every field of riding - always bringing home a rosette or two (or three or four!) from every show we have taken him too. He has been out and about competing in show jumping, dressage, hunter trials, one day events, pony club rallies, shows as well as sponsored rides and hacking. If my daughter wasn’t so tall she would be keeping him for a lot longer as she has so much fun riding and handling him but sadly we need to purchase something bigger for her hence his sale.

He has beautiful paces and his transitions are good. He frequently has comments in his dressage tests about his consistent paces and rhythm. Romeo can jump round a course of 70cm's easily, jumping higher single fences at home, he loves his job and never refuses a jump unless you ask too much from him. He can occasionally get a bit strong whilst out cross country (nothing uncontrollable or dangerous however!) which is probably his only fault that we can think of. He will stop instantly if you are firm.

He hacks alone or in company, leading the way or following behind. He listens well to his rider and has never put a foot wrong whilst out in open spaces. Good in traffic and based on a busy work yard so used to most vehicles. Lives in or out, loves other horses - currently living in a herd of five and doesn’t boss any of them around. Loads easily into trailer and lorry, doesn’t get excited whilst tacking up at shows or in the warm up. Unshod and has some of the best feet I have seen. Good with farrier, vet, clipping, dentist. Fully up to date on vaccinations etc. One of the friendliest ponies who follows you around the field and will quite happily fall asleep resting his head on your shoulder and always the first one up to greet you at the fence. My youngest leads him around like a dog!

PM me if you want to hear more! All videos are under #Lizwellromeo (Instagram) or on you tube under “Lizwell Romeo”

Please no time wasters, and only the most perfect loving home for this gentle pony. We would ideally like him to go to a pony club/competing home as he shows plenty of potential to be a serious competing pony for a more experienced rider.

For sale on behalf of clients. Top class Dartmoor and a new face for 2018

Very sturdy type with a lot of bone. We have had 'Storm' since just before Christmas and he has been very easy to break and produce.

He has now attended a few shows and been an absolute star in the first ridden classes, really showing his class against much older and seasoned HOYs ponies. Qualified for the Novice M&M FR final at NPS champs (which was our main aim for him). He is a definite HOYs prospect.

He has jumped a small course of fences at home, been hacking on the common and down the lanes alone and in company and is 100% to do in every way.

He also goes nicely on the lead rein.

We produced his brother as a 4 year old and he was very successful in FR classes being champion at 3 counties 2015.

Top class home sought, very happy to continue to produce for new owners, ponies like this don't come along often.

For sale on behalf of clients

'Rollo' was broken and produced by us as a 4 year old and was lightly campaigned in novice M&M First riddn classes in which he was 1st or 2nd nearly every time out. He then returned home and enjoyed more success in novice workers and dressage.

My clients have owned him for just under a year and he was bought for a 7 year old to enjoy all activities on. He has been hacked around the farm and been to dressage and fun rides. Unfortunately my clients daughter has lost all interest in riding and therefore he has returned to us to be produced.

We do not feel he is a FYFR simply because he enjoys his job and can be a little more forward at a show. He has never bucked or reared.

Rollo has always been a beautiful mover and he is very well schooled. He catches the eye in the ring.

He is easy to do in all ways and has always been a pleasure to do on the yard. He is offered for sale now at a very reasonable price. Having watched a few of the HOYs M&M Junior classes we really feel he would excel in this class as well as the first ridden and workers. He has contested a couple of HOYs FR with good marks but unfortunately I didn't have him in my yard early enough to enter him in the junior classes otherwise we would have aimed him at those too.
