‘Nixie’ is a lovely jumping pony, and she has never come home without a ribbon since we have had her, even when she has been pulled out of the paddock after a break. She had her first ever show hunter event on 3rd Feb, and came home with a 1st and 2nd from her two classes, and 10 qualifying points for HOY 2018. She has a good rhythm and automatic flying changes, with a nice jump.
Nixie placed 2nd in her show jumping class on 10th Feb also, showing a very quick jump off in challenging conditions. She also added another second place on 18th Feb at Woodhill to her trophy wall.
Nixie came to us recovering from a wire injury (only involving skin damage), so was not in peak physical condition. After spending plenty of time bringing her back into work slowly we have only competed her up to 90cm, however she has competed to 1.15 and schooled Pony GP heights with previous owners.
She hasn’t had continuous work (as she is pony number two) but you can leave her in the paddock for six weeks and just hop on and go for a ride with no issues. Nixie is loved by Mum who can practice her sitting trot with no stirrups as she has such a lovely smooth trot, and also go for a quiet hack up the road on her own or in company.
Nixie is well schooled and very soft in her aids, not a kick along pony nor is she heavy in the hand. Her dressage is very nice with lovely paces. When jumping she is forward but stays in her pace and always finds a nice distance to the fence. Excellent to ground school or lunge.
With her bloodlines Nixie could also interest a pony or park hack breeder.
Good to trim hooves, drench and self-loads on our truck.
