Arapito Kowhai is a fantastic show and dressage pony and well known in the South Island for his successes.
He is a L3 dressage pony and plays with the L4 movements at home. His success in the saddle hunter pony ring is extensive also with him excelling in the Open and Paced & Mannered classes. He won Supreme P&M pony at the 2023 NZ Agricultural Show (Chch A&P) and Champion Saddle Hunter Pony, among many other A&P Open Champions. He has also done very well in hand with his previous owner.

Some of his dressage achievements include:
- 4th in the FEI World Dressage 2023 youth section
- Champion elementary pony Syncroflex Festival of Future Stars 2023
- Champion elementary pony in the South Island Dressage Champs 2023.

He recently travelled from Christchurch up to Taupo for the EvoEvents U25 Youth Festival and coped brilliantly with the trip and competition. He is a regular competitor at the South Island Dressage Champs, Canterbury Dressage Champs and has attended the Marlborough Dressage Champs and Waimate Dressage Champs.

Kōwhai is a sensitive, forward moving pony with a big personality. He is quite the clown and often makes us laugh with his antics!

He loves to ride out at the forest and jump the logs or go to the beach. Kōwhai has a lovely jump on him and is very bold but we don’t want him going to a purely jumping home as this isn’t where he excels. We do, however, cross train him with the jumping and use it for fun workouts.

He travels in trucks/floats perfectly and is excellent for the farrier, vet, dentist etc.

We have 1000s of photos and videos to share but please only serious enquiries as this is a heart breaking sale due to my daughter outgrowing him. He will be available after HOY.
