A heartbreaking sale of a heart pony, Ancova Albert stands at 142cm (life height certificate), 14 years young, with so much more to give another young rider wanting to move up the levels with a competitive pony who does it all. He truly is a golden horse with a golden heart.
Prior to coming to us nearly 4 years ago, Albert had extensive experience in the showhunter ring, accumulating serious mileage in this discipline. Since being with his current rider, he has continued with success in the Cat B ring where he is rarely out of the placings, as well as some outings in open Cat C 80cm classes where his bold strides are well suited. Placed in nearly every Equitation class entered in 2021 season and qualified for HOY Showhunter 2022 from only 2 shows.
Albert has been stunning in the Working Hunter Pony ring, including a Reserve Champion in his first outing of this discipline, as well as a couple of Champion Rider over Jumps sashes. More recently he has been out showjumping with great success, 3rd in TAPC Area Showjumping 2021. In the last few weeks he has shown great consistency at Cartown North Island Showjumping Champs in Foxton, placing 2nd, 6th and 7th in the 1m classes, and Senior Reserve Champion at Taranaki Area PC Area Showjumping 2022.
Albert has had 2 seasons with us doing Level 2 dressage and was eligible to compete at HOY 2021 and 2022, as well as schooling some Level 3 movements. Dressage highlights include Taranaki Area PC Junior Champion 2019 and TAPC Intermediate Champion 2021. Eventing is where Albert has really shown his versatility, winning his last 3 starts at 80cm, including the recent Eventing Taranaki 80cm 16 years and under horse trial.
This boy is bold and brave, but sensitive as well, he really is tuned in to his rider. A real character, and stunning ring presence always earn him praise when out and about. He regularly attends pony club, including our annual camp, recently competing at TAPC Area Games in the winning team for Patea Carlyle PC as well as Senior Pairs coming a hard fought second. Happy hacking around the farm, loves the beach, tolerates being pampered, but loves his food the most. Travels well in float or truck, great teeth, good solid hooves, currently fully shod due to his jumping workload but has been barefoot at times with no issues, including when jumping. Available mid-July 2022, enquiries welcome from serious buyers, loads of photos and videos on request.
