Blue is a very sweet pony who is easy to handle out and at home as well as being very trainable. He is easy to float, clip, prep and for the farrier. He has taken his current rider from a 12-year-old prep/prelim rider, all the way to elementary level rider confident enough to educate and break-in young horses. He truly is a gentleman with a kind nature and would be perfect for a young rider of any age to build their confidence with dressage. I have lent him out to other riders to borrow over the past seven years, and on all occasions, they were successful. He has competed at interschool’s, breed shows, hack shows, dressage days, royal show, and the occasional pony club events.
Last year he was ridden primarily by a 12-year-old rider and took her to compete her very first novice dressage test as well as win her Rider and Best Educated Mount. I have also used Blue to teach beginner riders and is often the demonstration horse in pony club theory lessons due to his cool, calm easy going nature. At the 2017 State Dressage Championships we won the Pas De Dux Elementary, Zone Elementary and placed in all other events.
Blue, competes elementary level and training medium movements. He has scores of over 70% in elementary and Novice, is graded novice level officially. Unfortunately, I am going into my fourth year of university and barely have time for one horse let alone two, and I believe Blue could teach a new rider so much that I made the regretful decision to find him a new best friend. He is only going to an amazing home. He has been on spell over summer and is currently coming back into work. I am happy for people to visit and ride him as often as they like but no off-property trials and no leases, thank you. Price is negotiable to the right home.
Please note, he is not a jumping horse as he can get nervous show jumping, however with the right rider would be fine.
