Super Feature Listing
Zippy is a 16.1hh, 7 year old TB gelding by Postponed out of a Encosta de Lago mare.. A lovely athletic type with 3 super paces, lovely soft mouth and great brain! Zippy is well established on the flat, works in easy shape and very balanced. Leg yield/ counter-canter/ shoulder in well stablished working towards traver etc. Super easy to ride, beautiful snaffle mouth and a great brain, forward thinking and while not being a plodder still has more whoa than go.
He has a lovely jump with a super front end over a fence, nice sharp knees every time! Currently jumping rounds of 1.05-1.10m with scope to go higher. Not hot/spooky or bothered by any type of fill, a real worker who tries hard and wants to please. Absolute machine XC, easy snaffle mouth and goes at whatever pace you tell him to. Gives a great feeling xc, great with skinnies/ditches/water/banks/corners etc. This is his forte!
He would make a super Pony Club Champs/Junior Rider mount as he has a great brain and is an experienced Pre-Novice eventer that will easily go 1* with potiential for higher with the right rider. Recently placed 4th at Taupo HT Pre-Novice and 3rd at Papatoetoe Pony Club Pre-Novice, he has the potential to be someones next best friend and superstar!
An absolute pleasure to have around and handle on the ground, a lovely genuine boy, very polite and never gets in your personal space. Never kicked/bitten etc, great paddocked alone or with company. Good to be taken out by himself and with others, may call out the odd time but fine to be left alone at the truck. My non-horsey (chicken!) mother is happy and confident to handle on the ground, which says a lot! Good to catch/worm/truck/shoe etc. Never been on a float so can’t say for sure but imagine would be fine. Great doer and great non-typical tb feet! Doesn’t need to be worked everyday, was kept in light work over Christmas (2-3x a week) and never put a foot wrong, equally great to just get on and go after a week or 2 off. Has been hacking at the forestry and again didn’t put a foot wrong. A lovely boy that would make a great addition to any team, genuine reason for sale.
