Antrim Irish Cream
13.2, 14yr old Buckskin Gelding
Registered Welsh B, Arabian Pony and registered with the UPWBDA (buckskin, Pali etc Society).
Ricky was purchased sight unseen from QLD in 2017 and it was the best decision we’ve ever made. He’s not the one to win you ribbons in the hack ring but I wanted something safe to take my daughter around her first ODE’s and SJ courses and I got exactly what I wanted. Ricky is a safe eventer, tolerates dressage and loves show jumping. He has competed up to 100cm and can get the legs going in the speed events. In 2019 Ricky won the PCWA under 12yrs leaderboard SJing in 70-85cm and 14yrs and under SJing in the 90-100cm.
You can take Ricky anywhere and he’ll be fine, new places, large crowds, indoors, outdoors etc… none of it bothers him. He had no buck, bite etc. loads on to floats and trucks perfectly, will stand nicely for the farrier and will be the first to greet you at the gate.
Ricky is not for the beginner riders. He requires a child who has the confidence to ride a pony with a bigger stride and who has a nice independent seat and hands. If you don’t have these things he still won’t do anything terrible, but he’ll probably get a bit strong, toss his head and ask you kindly to get off his mouth. And he WILL jump the jump you point him at, he has no fear and will tackle anything put in from of him.
Ricky is currently in Perth but will be coming home to the Goldfields in the next few weeks if we can’t find his perfect match.
