Cracker Jacker is a striking 14.2hh (life cert at 147cm) 2008, strawberry roan, gelding, station bred. Cracker is a well known competitor, impressing all eyes that pass by.
Price reduced due to no fault of his own, just trying to find the best home.

He is a careful show-jumper, always wanting to please and do his best, very bold and talented, extremely clever. Always been safe and sound, no drama, very good doer. Funniest attitude, always one to give a smile. Cracker has been my best friend for just over the past two years, took me from my first 90cm to competing strongly at 1.10m, and 1.15m with previous owners, schooled around 1.20 with me at home. Unfortunately due to covid, my two showjumping seasons with Cracker were cut short, disadvantaging us in our amount of outings including our entries at HOY being cut twice, and our rate of improvement up the heights. In saying this, with the season opening up and looking pleasing he is ready to excel.

Cracker holds a special place in previous owners hearts as well as ours, will no doubt steal yours. Has the scope, talent and mindset to take his new rider round mini prix this season. Cracker would be best suited as a third pony to a confident small rider as he is forward going but sensitive. He needs someone gutsy yet quiet with soft steady hands who knows what they are doing/previously had a similar pony. Cracker is a jack of all trades having experienced a wide range of things: showjumping, cross country, pony club, swimming, hacking, living on a farm with cows, pigs, large machinery etc. Good to clip, shoe, travel both float and truck, drench, teeth etc. Fine to hack out with or without company, loves the farm and riding out with the dogs.

Cracker has given me many placings over the past two years as well as a collection of 3 winners rugs, so will always make the best out of shows. Tidy jump so hardly ever any poles, will get you out of most sticky situations.
Some of our highlights include:
- 0.95m & 1.05m Championship winner Kawerau Oct 2020
- 2nd place Pony 4bar Taupo Pony Extravaganza Dec 2020
- 1.10m Championship Taupo Christmas Classic placing Dec 2020

- 1.05m Championship winner Taupo Mid-Winter Classic June 2022

Only available to an experienced, approved home where he can go and be happy with his new partner, paddocked with a friend and get adored just as he is with me. Reason for selling: rider is too old to compete him this season and he is too young and healthy with too much potential to sit in the paddock.
Price is negotiable to the right rider and home.
