    Gender: gelding

This pony is an out and out competition pony and is looking for a home to continue producing him.

    3. ‘Sweetheart’

    Connemara ponies for sale

    Height: 15.1hh

    Gender: mare

    Age: five

    Selling points: “‘This pony is just a sweetheart. She is going to make a cracking competition/working hunter pony.  She has all the qualities i.e. straight legged, no dishing, no lumps/bumps or sarcoids. Although her career has only begun with us, this  pony has loads of scope — she’s taking her job very seriously and enjoying every minute of it. She’s schooling around a track of 80-90cm at our local training show with great potential to go higher. She loves cross-country, is schooling well on the flat and is balanced and showing great athleticism. She hacks out alone or in company on busy little road with plenty to see, including heavy farm machinery. Not only is she beautiful, she’s just very easy lady in and out of the stable to load catch shoe etc. Despite all that, no nervous riders/novices please —  she’s 100% and very good-natured, but she’s learning every day and needs an experienced hand to get her to her potential. She is an out and out competition pony who just loves to jump and her career is only starting and I want the best production for this special lady as I see a bright future for her.”

    Connemara ponies for sale

    Height: 14.2hh

    Gender: mare

    Age: five

    Selling points: “‘Lily’ is a buckskin Class 1 Connemara. She is beautifully bred and is looked after on a daily basis by my 11-year-old daughter. She has a very laid back temperament but is not at all lazy and is a light, responsive ride. She hacks alone and in company, is good with all large farm machinery and keeps a level head when others are losing theirs. She is established on the flat and has a bold, scopey jump. She has no vices or quirks.”

    5. ‘Top jumping pony

    Connemara ponies for sale

    Height: 14.2hh

    Gender: gelding

    Age: 13

    Selling points: “This pony is consistently placing most times out. Despite limited outings in 2020, he obtained all of his double clears for British Showjumping Foxhunter, Members Cup and Blue Chip Sparkle for 2021. He is not far off from being a JA pony and he is a strong contender for the Showjumper of the Year classes. With the right rider he would be a European Pony prospect. He has endless scope and is training over tracks of 1.35m and single fences of 1.50m. He has hunted, evented and done all Pony Club activities. He has been slowly and correctly produced in the years we have owned him. He has never been over-faced and has been progressing slowly as my daughter gained confidence to jump the bigger tracks. He is now ready to move on with a new ambitious young rider. He is a willing and an enjoyable ride and a sweet pony to have on the yard. Easy to do in all aspects. He has been a pleasure to hack out too.”
