Redcliffs Bill

The time has come to get serious about selling this amazing pony. I have tried to delay the inevitable, but he needs to find his next person and build towards the coming season. Despite me thinking that he is priceless, I am now prepared to meet the market.

13 yr old, very full sized bay Kaimanuwa pony. Bill has the most adorable personality- he is a true mate! He is very easy to ride and handle.

Bill has an exceptional record with his jumping; he is so so careful, scopey and fun. He won the 2024 National Pony Grand Prix title with 5 clear rounds at 1.20-1.35m. He won 6 Grand Prix classes this past season- winning the most GPs of any North Island based pony. This is pretty impressive, considering he competed at less shows than many others at this level.

Due to our daughter’s hockey injury and boarding school commitments- Bill has not chased the Series points while we have owned him. He has been the perfect partner for a busy rider. Even when his rider had limited opportunities to train and compete- Bill won 50% of the Grand Prix he entered this season- each with a competitive double clear. He was also on the winning Saba Sam team and Interschools team at HOY… he has a very long list of achievements. Bill is the ultimate fun jumping machine.

Bill also enjoys being ridden around the farm or beach bareback. He goes in a snaffle, not many upper level horses or ponies are this simple!

He has a boring vet history and recently flew through his annual insurance vet check. Bill has been looked after with the utmost care and not been over jumped.

His one quirk can be his ‘you can’t catch me game’ that he plays if you come without a treat. If you can cope with this- and you are looking for a pony of a lifetime to take your child on a magical journey up the grades in the showjumping world, then get in touch.

Our daughter started on Bill at the 1.10m level and boy those were fun days- watching them progress. He is a true school master, in his prime!

Bill is based in Hawkes Bay. Ponies of this calibre are very rare- we have been so lucky to have had the pleasure to own him!

Many photos and videos are available on request, more will be added asap (they are just too large to add)
