Apsley Backchat Kid
Reuben is a stunning 14.2hh (life certificated) 2002 riding pony by Apsley Backchat that needs no introduction.
He has been the perfect allrounder having wins and placings in eventing, showjumping, dressage and showing.
Not only is he super talented but has the personality to die for. He loves attention and wants to be your best friend. He has been perfect to truck, float, clip, shoe, dentist, road ride ect.
Has competed to 1.10 showjumping but schooled around 1.30 with ease. Wins and placings to level 3 dressage with the ability to go up the grades. Wins and placings in eventing. Has had four pre-novice starts where he has been double clear at all four including Springston Trophy. Champion and reserve champions in the showring, always placing in the top for paced and mannered.
Very brave, bold and honest pony with absolutely no dirt, soft snaffle mouth for dressage. Perfect for a kid wanting to get out there to have fun and come home with a bunch of ribbons. Has the ability to go up the heights and grades in all disciplines.
Reuben will be stepping up to 1* this upcoming ESNZ eventing season.
Don't let his age put you off as he hasn't had an overly competitive life. He spent 6 years hacking and enjoying life. We have spent the last 3 years together competing.
