Chiko is you’re perfect pony step up. He has no buck, rear, kick e.t.c. and is very well educated on the flat as well as in jumping. Chiko is currently being competed as a show jumper but is more than capable of doing eventing as he has proved during training sessions at both the State Equestrian Centre and Brookleigh Equestrian Centre.
He is very willing and brave in both cross country and show jumping. He has given me many placing over the last few years in show jumping (that’s MY area of competition) and is competing from 80-100cm currently. He is sadly up for sale due to no fault of his own as I simply don’t have enough time to keep him fit anymore. I hate the thought of having to say goodbye to such an amazing horse however, we do need to be moving Chiko on, but he will only go to the best home.
His price is negotiable, but his home IS NOT.
Chiko would be ideal for a younger rider (10-14) who is already an intermediate rider and is ready to move into competing and getting out and about with a more than capable and safe horse. He occasionally struggles with loading on straight load floats but if done correctly (happy to teach you obviously) he will pretty much go straight on.
Some of Chiko’s major successes in show jumping include:
1st – SMPC 100cm AM7 (2017)
2nd – WASJA 90cm AM7 (2018)
2nd – WASJA 80-90cm Optimum Time (2017)
2nd – 80cm Patrons Cup AM7 (2017), WASJA 80cm AM7 (2018)
3rd – OTT 80-90cm Patrons Cup Super-2 Phase (2018)
4th – 70cm Patrons Cup AM7 (2016)
I want to encourage you not to be put off by the fact that he is a standardbred as he does not act like one at all, granted he will take some getting used to, but as he was hardly ever raced, he barely ever paces and is extremely easy to recover. He does also have a pretty comfortable jump on him and he rarely bunny hops or refuses jumps and can easily maintain a canter throughout a course (cross country and show jumping).
He is an absolutely gorgeous horse, and this is a very hard sale.
