Sports Pony - Blue roan Mare, 13 years, 13.2 hands (LHC)
Lilly is an all round schoolmistress with the most amazing track record.She's looking for her next jockey who wants to start jumping and move up to affiliated courses. She’s a super-safe, kind, beautiful and talented blue roan, who’s 13 years old and 13.2hh (with a life height certificate).
Lilly has a glittering array of wins showjumping, is a truly loveable character and adores cross-country and dressage.
Over the last two years, from November 2019, Lilly’s formed the most amazing partnership with our daughter. They’ve gone from showjumping 70 cm, right the way through to Newcomers HOYS qualifiers in 2021 (with a start height of 1m 10cm!).
Lilly very sadly has early onset osteoarthritis, in 2 joints in her back, so we do not want to continue the quest for HOYS (showjumping) and make it any worse. She did her qualifying rounds this year (jumping courses with a start height of 1m 10cm). She has however now had 6 months clear of any back pain.
Our specialist top horse vet scanned and medicated her back in late summer 2021. His advice is that at her age and given the x-rays that he has reviewed, Lilly can still have a very successful career for many years in the Pony Club and lower level showjumping (up to 90cm start height).
Lilly will be able to do that standing on her head and will love looking after another little jockey!
Our daughter is growing like a bean and moving on to 14.2s, in her quest to jump the biggest jumps ever! So, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to sell Lilly.
In terms of capabilities, Lilly has:
- Won the Just for Schools Class and Discovery at the BSJA Nationals in 2020;
- Won £1,144 since starting her affiliated career in November 2019, repeatedly winning Novice, Discovery and Newcomers affiliated BSJA classes;
- Qualified for the British Eventing Area finals; and
- Hunted (and loved it) with her previous owners, jumping anything in front of her.
She is 100% reliable on the ground, but can occasionally windsuck - which has never affected her.
On the ground, our daughter has done everything for Lilly herself and they’ve had so much fun!
