It is with huge regret and a heavy heart that we offer the opportunity for a new rider to take the ride on Irish Cream (Bailey). Her current rider is turning 17 and moving onto hacks. She has spent the last 3 years carefully producing this beautiful 7-year-old mare who is now a talented and competive full size pony. Bailey holds a very special place in our family. After purchasing her as a four-year-old, she has carefully progressed from the 60cm classes to producing clear rounds at the 1.05-1.10m level with one Mini-Prix start. Currently schooling to 1.25m+ with ease at home with scope to go higher but we have not pushed her to her full potential as she is still young. She will be available for sale after HOY 2018 and viewings are also welcome there.
For the right rider she is an uncomplicated ride who will strive to please, however she is intelligent and very sensitive with a soft mouth. She requires a kind, confident and experienced young rider to bring out the best in her and continue her progress steadily. Multiple top-level riders and coaches have commented on this ponies talent, scope and her future ability to compete at a Pony Grand Prix level but sadly her current rider has ran out of time to achieve this.
Although her talent lies in show-jumping, she truly excels in all disciplines. Bailey has regularly attended pony club, attending camps, represented games teams and was also selected to compete for the Wairarapa-Wellington area show jumping team at Horse of the Year 2017 and is also the reserve pony for the 2018 SJ team. Bailey has evented up to a pre-training level and has easily schooled over training and pre-novice fences where she is brave and showing great talent but this is just not where the rider’s interest currently lies. Bailey has also produced beautiful dressage tests, placing at unregistered dressage days and at local ODEs. With 3 beautiful paces her exceptional flatwork has also been recognised in the pleasure pony show ring with countless placings at A&P shows throughout the Lower North Island.
Bailey has also been schooled by numerous top riders and instructors in all disciplines and is a true all-rounder. All the hard work has been done and the foundations have been carefully laid for her next rider to progress with her to the top level she is undoubtedly capable of.
Bailey is well behaved for the vet, farrier, chiro and dentist. She is straightforward to clip and drench and is not at all pushy on the ground. She has really lovely manners, a kind sensitive nature and is a pleasure to handle with a very cool personality. Bailey has superb feet and has had regular treatment by the chiro and dentist and is in tip top condition with no health problems. She happily self loads on a float and is a great traveller by both float and truck where she will then stand happily snoozing at a busy show until her time to compete.
For us a great home is absolutely paramount and non-negotiable. We want her to progress with a confident and ambitious rider who can continue to educate and take her up the heights to reach her full potential. She would be ideally suited to a young experienced rider who is already competing at the top level.
Bailey will not be sold sight unseen and will only be sold to an approved, knowledgeable and experienced home.
