Clare Downs Enwedig Rhifyn aka Rhifyn is a rising 6yr old (born 27/12/13) personality filled pure bred Welsh D Galloway gelding standing at 14.2hh by Trapalanda Downs Imprint out of Pen-nant Black Bess. I bought Rhifyn straight from the breeder in 2017 with a handful of rides under his belt. He has a “look at me” presence receiving comments where ever he goes and is loved by everyone at our local Pony Club.
Rhifyn was lighly competed in 2018 and was very successful, with results including:
– 2018 Capel CNC – Ev45 – 3rd
– 2018 GSZ ODE – 45 – 1st
– 2018 Murray ODE – 45 – 1st
– 2018 Kalgoorlie ODE – 45 – 2nd
– 2018 Eastern Zone – 45 – 1st
– 2018 PCAWA 45cm Eventing Leader board Winner
All of the above ODE’s were completed and ended on our dressage score.
He has also won Champion Encourage Show Hunter at all 3 Show Horse days we competed at, also placing Runner-Up Encourage Show Hunter of the Year.
In 2019 Rhifyn took a step back from the competing and was ridden by a 12yr old girl who had lots of fun on him. They attended pony club, enjoyed playing around bareback and jumping up to 90cm at home and doing the odd competition up to 75cm. Rhifyn has proved in this time to be a good child’s pony and is a safe mount. He would suit a range of riders whether it be an older child, teenager or adult rider.
Rhifyn is a super pony who has a snaffle mouth. He has lovely movement and would suit pony dressage as well. Being still quite young he can have his baby moments and can pigroot when he decides he doesnt want to work. However, in saying that he is a pony with a lot more whoa than go so his excitable moments are lucky to last a minute. He can be left and ridden after period of time with no issues. He is a true allrounder and would suit any discipline.
He is easy to catch, trim, worm, clip and wash. Rhifyn’s only real issue is that he can scramble in the float, we double bay him in our 2hsl and he floats great so would be best suited to that. Electric fencing is a bonus as he can be an escapee if bored. Although he’s quiet I feel he wouldn’t be suited to a beginner due to his age.
Rhifyn is lifetime EA Registered and is now priced at $9,500.
Price is negotiable however home isn’t. Will consider a trial on strict conditions.
Located in Albany, WA.
