Very sad sale of a much loved pony.
Kiri is an absolute superstar showjumper who just loves her job. In the three years that we have owned her, she has taken my daughter from cautiously jumping 60cm rounds, to confidently zipping around 110cm rounds. Kiri’s results speak for themselves. Highlights include winning the most points in Intermediate classes (95cm) at the South Island Pony Club Showjumping champs in both 2020 and 2019, and winning all four of her 1metre classes at the Wanaka A&P Show in March 2020 - including winning the prestigious Gamblers Stakes class for the second year running.
Kiri is really fast, and very clever on her feet. She is very agile, and incredibly quick on her turns. She is a careful jumper, and very rarely takes rails. She does not refuse - ever!
Kiri is a forward ride, and needs a confident young rider who is willing to embrace the speed rather than be put off by it. She would suit a rider who has put in their time at the lower showjumping heights and is ready to move up to the 90cm-1m level.
Kiri has no dirt whatsoever, and is always very well behaved and keen to get on with the job at hand. She is a good do-er, and is very easy care. Her ground manners are impeccable. She can be bit twitchy when having her back feet shod, and needs either a very patient farrier or sedation for this, but she has very good feet, and once she has her shoes on she holds them very well.
We have taken Kiri eventing, and she is her usual spectacular self in the showjumping and cross country phases, but needs more work than we have put in with her to bring her dressage marks up.
Bridle, leather halter with nameplate and canvas cover included in price.
