EXPERIENCED ALLROUNDER PONY
Phoenician Overture (Sooty)
DOB: December 2003 (Rising 15)
NZ riding pony By Radway Talk of the Town
Sooty is a talented jumping pony who has taken his current rider from 70cm rounds to confidently jumping 1.05 Show Jumping rounds with placings, and definitely has the scope to go higher. Sooty is a very honest pony who will jump from any spot you put him in. He does not look at fills, liver pools, etc. He also competed at the 2018 North Island Show Jumping champs in the Junior ring for Waitemata District. Not fizzy when jumping, more whoa than go but will adjust to rider.
Sooty is also an awesome Cat C (90cm) Show Hunter pony with many wins and placings including a 4th and an 8th at HOY 2017 in huge classes of over 50 people. Established flying changes.
Sooty is also very capable of producing a lovely dressage test with placings at Level 1&2 and knows all the moves to continue on to level 3. He has also been in the Waitemata Rodney Dressage Champs Team 2017 & 2018 travelling to Manawatu at the beginning of this year.
Previously did well in the Showing Ring although this is not something we have done with him.
Sooty has also been successful in low level eventing with placing at intro and Pre-training. However, this is not something we have focussed on and he would need some more cross-country training over ditches, water etc. to get him really confident. Although he is more than capable of 65cm eventing.
Very good traveller, have taken him all over the north island in our straight loader horse float. Also good to truck, shoe, worm, dentist. He can be grass affected so we keep him on little grass during the spring and autumn flush. Never foundered. Sooty does wind suck although this has not presented any issues, he just wears a collar in the paddock.
Sooty is not suitable for a beginner as he is a quirky wee pony but would be suitable as a 2nd or 3rd pony for a confident rider to move up the grades in their chosen discipline. Would love him to go to an experienced horsey home where he would have lots of fun.
Sooty has been a much-loved member of the family for over 2 years, home is more important than price. Only for sale as rider is over-committed.
