WANTED SHOWJUMPER PONY FOR GRAND PRIX
Have you got a talented pony and are looking for a kind and talented rider to take it up the heights this coming season?
I am looking on behalf of a rider who is in her last season on ponies and would love to finish her pony years riding Grand Prix.
Can anyone help these dreams come true? Ideally looking for a lease option due to only being on ponies for one more season, and rider is more than happy to pay to get the opportunity, although will also consider a lease to buy if anyone has one that might tick the boxes? This rider was doing mini prix last season, has a few sponsors up her sleeve and has character and riding references from her coaches including World Cup Showjumper Lucy Olphert who trains her on a regular basis. Lucy was chosen by Lucy Olphert out of 5 NZ show jumpers to travel to France to compete and be trained by top trainers there. Sadly, this year would not work due to Covid restrictions and the timing Lucy was not able to join the chosen team. She's hoping for next year.

When we heard Lucy’s story and her quest for a Pony Grand Prix ride to see out her last season on ponies, we were reminded of how therapeutic our horses are, precisely why we share our lives with them and why we give them our all.
Lucy’s story of her fight for survival is being shared here in the hope the right person will not only be inspired by her courage, but also be able to assist her reach her dream goal and next season ride Pony Grand Prix. For now, Lucy lacks the main ingredient being the right pony!
Sixteen years ago, Lucy was born with a complex cardiac condition (complex congenital heart disease and hypoplastic left heart) meaning she had to undergo three triple bypasses in Starship Hospital before she was 5 years old. At each surgery, she was given a 50% chance of survival. Well, that was then, and this is now.
A true survivor, Lucy has beaten the odds and at age 16, allows nothing to hold her back. A talented and determined young lady, she tends to happily ride the ponies that are not easy.
Do you own or know of a suitable Pony Grand Prix Show Jumper that would enjoy being highly valued, treasured and adored by this young lady? Ideally a lease option would be best but please know that all options will be closely considered.
Last season, Lucy successfully rode Mini Prix with placings, under the tuition and watchful eye of the very experienced, professional rider, Lucy Olphert, who will continue to train Lucy on a regular basis. Barely needing introduction to the horse world, the wonderful Lucy Olphert, a world cup competitor, coach extraordinaire, will provide character and riding references.
“The odds against me made me stronger and more determined to live my dream as a show jumper and to try harder at everything i do.
It would be a privilege if I could have the opportunity to look after your pony that has the potential to do grand prix for my last season. I would love any help offered to succeed in this sport and appreciate you taking the time to read this, cheers.”
