We have “Sparkles” for sale.
She is 11 years old, 12.2 hands and a bit of a “pocket rocket.”
She out jumps horses twice her size. Welsh section A/B, with a splendid character.
She jumps an 80cm course with room to spare. Second placed at Foresters Seat X-C last summer against much taller horses. She is a bit of a phenomenon and attracts a certain amount of awe and respect for what she can jump in relation to her size. Many have been sorely dismayed.
My daughter is now 13, has become “long” overnight, and has sadly outgrown her. We have another “project” which is taking up most of our time these days. We are feeling guilty because we don’t have the time for Sparkles now we have the “new boy.”
Sparkles is not getting the work she needs and is staring to become a tad “full”, which is fine for the winter but she is missing the work and really loves it.
She has taken my daughter far and we will be sorry to see her go but she is so much more than a companion pony and it would be an utter crime to make her so.
Perfect pony for a young one wishing to make a statement of intent. She will win comps. This little pocket rocket will continue to astound. She certainly has astounded us. She deserves the best. She has certainly given hers. She needs to go to a young one that will compete with her, bond with her and jump her. This is a pony of singular note that thrives on the work and will take your young one much further than their abilities alone. She really is a star.
Easily worth £4000 and asking it. May take slightly less.
