Whistle Downs Annie Oakley
143cm mare, 14yo
Annie is the ultimate competitive allrounder, safe, sensible and fun!!!
She has been with her current owners for over 5 years where she has been a treasured member of the family. Whilst being with her current owners she has been the ultimate pony club pony, confidence builder and excelled in the pleasure ring, being a multi-champion winner and qualifying for HOY 2021. She has brought home hundreds of ribbons, multiple champions, trophies and a supreme award.
Annie has very established flat work and can comfortably ridden in contact or on the buckle at all times. She has done limited dressage with her current owners but is schooling at level 2. Her riders in the last 5 years have not had focus or a lot of interest in jumping but have done the odd bit of jumping at pony club, interschool’s and in lessons where she has shown to be uncomplicated and brave.
With her previous owners she successfully competed with wins and placings in the dressage, showing (saddle hunter) and Show Hunter ring (cat B).
For the last 5 years she has been living on an operational dairy farm so is comfortable and desensitized to livestock, dogs, tractors, bikes, machinery and kids. She has been extensively hacked over the farm, loves the beach/river and is great alone or in company.
She is a responsive pony, listens and responds to leg and has a lovely soft mouth. Easy going type and steps up or down depending to her rider’s ability.
Bringing her back in work after time off is a breeze and is ok being in either regular or sporadic work.
Annie would be best suited as a 2nd/3rd pony for a kid wanting to get out and about and have fun. Although she is safe and generally extremely easy going, she is a horse and not a motorbike so does have her moments (eg. Gets excited doing games if you get very competitive). She is great to shoe, worm, clip, travel and is very respectful on the ground. Great to be paddocked either alone or in company.
This is an incredibly hard sale for her owners and is only for sale as the youngest daughter is still on lead-rein and Annie deserves more than to be sitting in a paddock as the older sister have moved onto bigger horses/ponies. She will only be available to a 5* home!
She is ready to find her new rider and family that will give her the love and attention she deserves.
Annie will be sold with all her gear: Dressage saddle, Bridle, bomber bit, showing browband & stock, boots, halter, lead, saddle blanket, and her extensive wardrobe of rugs.
