2. ‘A true sweetheart

Connemaras for sale

Height: 14hh

Gender: gelding

Age: nine

Selling points: “‘Seany’ has recently done Pony Club camp with a nervous teenager — he was a total sweetheart, going from cross poles at the start of the week to 90cm at the end. Seany is one of the most consistent 80/90cm showjumping pony north of the Border — he has 187 British Showjumping (BS) points but is still eligible for discovery classes. He has competed mainly in BS, but competes very well as a working hunter or Pony Club pony. He qualified for several team places for the 2017 and 2018 NSEA champs and was on the winning arena eventing team at 85cm in 2018. Seany has hunted in England with the Ledbury, and Cotswold Vale, in Scotland and in Ireland. He is absolutely fantastic, jumping everything that he is put at including timber, hedges, ditches and water. Seany was champion M&M working hunter pony (WHP) at Puddledub ISEC Show, qualifying for the Caledonian Championships, and jumped at the RHS in the HOYS WHP. Seany has done Pony Club, including being a ‘B’ test riding examination pony. He will hack on his own or in company, he’s enjoyed fun rides and has been to the beach. Seany is a very kind pony that is handled by children in every way. He is good with the farrier, to bath, clip, lead, load and travel in both lorry and trailer. He is used to both very busy yards and also quieter private yard. He’ll happily live in or out in a mixed herd.”

5. ‘Stunning

Connemaras for sale

Height: 14.1hh

Gender: mare

Age: nine

Selling points: “This pony is currently competing at 1m unaffiliated showjumping going clear. She is jumping 1.10m plus at home with ease. She would be fantastic for a confident teenager to affiliate and compete on. She is a sharp, hot blooded little Connemara mare, so she is unsuitable for a novice or nervous rider. She has no vices — she does not buck, rear or nap. This is a truly talented little pony that would do very well in a competition home. She is easy to handle on the ground and has a lovely nature.”
