Heartbreaking sale for a very loved pony.
Joey is a 143cm 10yr old registered connemara pony. Would suit a showing/WHP home or PC/RC home. He is a very sweet pony but needs an experienced and confident rider which unfortunately is no longer me hence why I’m selling.
On the ground he is a very kind gentle boy who loves fuss. He will stand for hours to be groomed and not move an inch. Good to catch from the field/take out to field etc. Perfect with farrier. He does travel but doesn’t travel well in a trailer – I have been slowly working on this with him trying to figure out why. I believe he needs to be/feel more secure with closer panels. Having spoken to a few previous owners he was used travelling in a horsebox with them and travelled perfect which I was going to try next but due to current pandemic I was unable to hire to try.
To ride – joey has lovely paces and good confirmation. Unfortunately he does have a few quirks when ridden – he does get nervous and spooky at times so does need a confident rider. He has also been known to rear so again he needs a confident rider who doesn’t mind this. He doesn’t do this all the time, it’s been once since owning him but it’s something I want the potential owners to know. Hes well schooled and he does jump etc and been cross country with previous owners. Hes not suitable for hunting though as he doesn’t cope.
Joey needs a home where they are happy to handle his quirks.
Right home for this pony is a must.
Passed 5 stage vetting 3 months ago.
Plenty of pictures and videos on request.
Will come with bridle and rugs. I also have a brand new saddle fitted for him that I am happy to sell.
