3. ‘Fun’

mares for sale

Height: 13hh

Gender: mare

Age: 12

Selling points: “Sunny is a registered New Forest mare, whom we’ve had the utmost pleasure to own for the past six years. Sunny has participated in a range of activities, mainly hunting and showjumping, although she has also done some one-day events, cross-country, working hunter pony, Pony Club and mounted games. She has competed up to 85cm showjumping and around 85/90cm cross-country. Her dressage could be improved on, simply because her jockey never took interest in that particular discipline. Sunny is an easy pony to have around at home — she is very sweet-natured and loves being fussed over. She is good to load, clip, shoe, and catch. Sunny has hunted for the past six seasons with packs including the High Peak, Four Shires Bloodhounds and Staffordshire Moorlands, jumping whatever is asked of her; stone walls, rails, hedges and ditches. She stands at the meet, on point, does gates, and has also whipped-in. Sunny would be suited to a slightly more experienced or teenage jockey, who’s looking for a fun & capable pony to participate in PC and/ or all round activities. She is forward going when out hunting & jumping, although never silly, and as such, we feel a more experienced child would be able to handle her more easily.”
