****. Mickey must be sold as we now do not have room to keep him!! All offers to good home considered ****
Mickey is an 8 year old (rising 9) welsh x riding pony who has matured at 13.1 3/4. He has proven results and a lot of scope to develop.
Mickey is a very flashy bay gelding with a star stripe snip on his face and a sock on his hind left. He comes with all papers and has been registered previously dual registered with the Welsh and a Riding Pony societies and also with the Show Horse Council.
He has been out to many shows and events, and places consistently in the top three. He has excellent paces and always places high in dressage. In the nearly two years we have had him he has been coached regularly by Kristen Bain and attended numerous pony club rallies.
With his previous owners he mainly trained in dressage and was selected for the Australian interschool championships for intermediate dressage preliminary.
Though his dressage is strong, we have spent the last 18 months focusing on eventing and he has taken very well to it, competing successfully at 65cm with potential to go higher. At home he has jumped up to 1.10m and has competed in show jumping at 70cm.
This is a pony who will take their rider far in almost any discipline as he is still young enough to train and responds well to it. Mickey is competition ready for eventing/dressage/hacking/showjumping but is getting too small for his growing rider. Suitable as a first ridden or for an experienced rider to seriously compete on.
Mickey loves to be fawned over and behaves for the farrier, has been front-shoed at times when riding on rocky ground but is currently barefoot. Good to worm/float. We have had no health/soundness issues with him in the time we have had him.
(Mickeys placings – we don’t attend a lot of comps so this list is all we have done with him, some of these placings could’ve been higher but his rider likes to go a bit fast in the cross country phase!)
