Heartbreaking sale of my daughter’s dream pony, Scooby. He has given her the confidence to be competitive and sadly she’s outgrown him.

He loves to jump, canter along the beach, fly at the gallops, or just hack on the buckle. He’s taken my daughter from nervously show jumping 50cm to being in the rosettes jumping 80cm. He adores cross country and whenever we’ve done pairs, we’ve always won. 2020 was supposed to be the year to event. Sadly COVID-19 prevented that, but we competed him unaffiliated around BE80 courses and he was always in the top 10. He doesn’t have a problem making the speed. He is fast and needs a confident, competent rider. As he loves jumping he can be forward.

He’s been in pony club homes for the last 5 years and he knows his job. He loves summer camp.

He is our wonder pony, I trust him to keep my daughter safe. He’s unflappable on a hack, doesn’t fuss at shows, just stands patiently at the lorry, is very well-behaved in the warm up and will be the one to chaperone the spooky, jumpy horses. He has never bolted, bucked or reared with us and has no ridden or stable vices.

He’s 16 and only been seen by the vet in the 2 years we’ve had him for his jabs and teeth. He travels best in a lorry travelling herringbone but is fine forward facing in a trailer, just unbalances a bit going round bends, so needs overreach on his back legs to prevent him catching himself (he’s shod all round). He can hesitate to load but just needs a treat in hand. My daughter loads him but I’m always there just in case to give a push on the bottom. We sedate him to clip.

He’s easy to do, in the stable, to groom, wash off, tack up, mount etc, just stands. He has a beautiful kind temperament, wants to please and is my daughter’s best friend.

We would like him to go to a pony club home, local to us ideally so that we can keep in touch. We want to be sure that he goes to the right home. He means everything to us and we’ve considered keeping him, but he needs a job with a smaller rider and we need to buy the next pony.

We have 100s of photos and videos and are happy to send them via WhatsApp.

Price includes bridle and all rugs. Saddle (Kent and Masters jump) and other specific items available by negotiation.
