Louis is a kind but forward moving pony suitable for a confident competitive rider looking to move up the heights. With his previous owners Louis has competed successfully to Grand prix and has competed at HOY several times, most recently 2019 in various classes including 120 speed pony with only one unlucky rail at the last jump. We have only owned him for one year, but sadly his 12 yr old rider has grown too fast and is now too tall (as you will see from the pictures) to continue with him and reach his full potential. He still has the drive, scope, ability and years to be competing at mini prix if not grand prix level again.
He has competed successfully with us show jumping this season with placings up to 105 see some results bellow.
He has Evented up to open (105) and has plenty of scope to go higher, brave and honest on the x country but dressage is not his strong point.
Louis has no buck, bolt, rear or bite. He is good to clip, shoe, worm, float/ truck, always travels well. No problems leaving him at the float or yards by himself at events. Very easy and uncomplicated to take out and about. He is great to hack out in company or alone and good with traffic. His rider hacks out regularly on the roads around home and in the local forestry, he is a safe and kind pony. He has attended pony club this season, but not suitable for games. Ridden in a snaffle in all disciplines and has good breaks. Louis has excellent ground manners and is happy to be groomed by our 7yr old daughter, in saying this, he can be a bit quirky/sensitive but these quirks are very manageable and cause us no problems, will discuss further with genuine enquiries.
He would be suitable as a 3rd pony for an experienced competitive rider, as mentioned previously he is a forward moving and sensitive pony so needs a kind rider. Louis is enthusiastic in the show jumping ring and knows his job.
As his rider hasn’t had the time to reach his full potential this season, we have priced him accordingly. Louis is being kept in light work, so will be ready for his new rider to pick up from here and get ready over the winter for the new season.
