Meet Pablo, a wonderful new pony 13hh

Hello! I’d like you to get to know me.
My name is Pablo and I’ve just arrived at Lavant House Stables.
I am 13hh, 9 years old and have two blue eyes, three white socks and a white face which I personally feel makes me stand out amongst my friends!
My loves?
People – I am super friendly and I can be quite the little chatter box.
Cuddles
Yoga –  every day without fail I will do my stretches when I come into the yard so that everyone can see.
What am I good at?
Well I am a pretty talented jumper and back in Ireland I racked up 101 show jumping points!
Amelia has told me that even though I am way too small for her that I have a really comfortable canter and if she was younger she would love to have me!
Who would like to own me?
I’m not a beginners’ pony, even though I am safe I’m not a kick along. My ideal owner would be someone who could groom me to keep me looking handsome, jump me as it’s my favourite thing to do. Oh and love me.

Height: 16.2 hh
YOB:       2004
Gender: Gelding
Colour:   Bay
Breed/Type: Irish
Owner: LHS/Loan Owners: Heather Jacobs and Vikki Randall
Price: £4,750 (to remain at Lavant House Stables)

This horse is a brilliant hunter with the kindest nature. Bally has hunted for 4 seasons and been XC schooling several times with numerous members of staff. A forward going and thinking horse who is reliable and safe.

Bally was recommended to us and has proven to be the unusual combination of being both safe and sensible enough for a first-time owner/or beginner rider, whilst also having enough about him for the more skilled rider to enjoy. 

Handsome with quality and substance, Bally has three correct and active paces suitable to be successful in pure dressage, yet also jumps anything and everything, and has proven himself to also be an able and bold hunter who becomes better and better at this job every time he goes out. 

Not least is his lovely sensitive nature which results in him being a pleasure to handle and ride100% sound, hack-out, jump all types of fences, load, clip, handle, etc.  and able to carry up to 16+ stone.  A very easy, unusual horse who can carry a beginner rider of any weight calmly and safely yet also give highly experienced riders a thrill when he is asked to provide more.  These photos do not begin to do him justice!

Brief

This smart, well-moving and well-trained gelding joined us from a respected colleague of ours, Alec Miles, having also been recommended to us by Robert Pickles FBHS.

By the renowned local stallion Ludo and with the official name of “Shake That Booty” he is pretty enough adorn a chocolate box but also delivers the goods, having been trained to Medium level in dressage and successfully competed up to and including BE Novice level in his earlier years.

Fraser

(Loan is to remain on site and is to known clients only)

Height:  15.2 hh
YOB: 2001
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Tri-Coloured (dark brown, black and white)
Breed: Irish Middleweight
Owner: LHS
Price: £4,250 (to remain at Lavant House Stables)

The wonderful Fraser has progressed many riders since during the years he has been with us.  Skilled on the flat and over fences, he is fundamentally a sensitive horse which has proven a huge hit for most that have had the pleasure of riding him. 

Fraser has also been out and seen much of life, such as competing in all three disciplines, cross-country schooling, hunting and sponsored rides.  His owner of many years, Helena has learnt much with this lovely horse and it is only due to her being off to Uni that this special boy finds himself on the market – ideally to remain at Lavant House Stables, but this is not essential.  The most important thing is to find a suitable new owner who can provide an excellent home to this very special horse.

Good to box, clip, shoe, catch, handle, etc. fully vacinated, sound and fit, Fraser is suitable as a first or second horse to a caring home.

Goliath came to us through a good friend of our Chief Instructor, Amanda, due to his encroaching years meaning he needed to wind down what was expected of him.  A wonderful schoolmaster who despite his age is unusually still loose in his way of going, Goliath has proved a great hit from the moment he walked in the yard.  A handsome horse who keeps himself remarkably white (thank goodness) he has a simply fabulous temperament and really is a true gentle giant.

Owner: LHS
Price: £4,500 ono & Under Offer

Purchased from Ireland 2013 this is a eye catching quality pure bred Connemara from the famous Monaghanstown line.  Sensible and sensitive he has a lovely, kind temperament.  With three good basic paces and an “uphill”, balanced way of going, Jack is a quiet, willing ride, being a small horse who wants to learn.  Ideal all round type for small adult or older child, he jumps a track of all types of fences, has been schooled over cross-country fences, has done Pony Club rallies and behaves himself when out and about.  Good to hack, including traffic.

Height: 14.3 hh
YOB: 1996
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Skewbald (brown and white)
Breed: Irish Cob
Owner: LHS & Half-Sharer Isabella Woolnough

Jigsaw is of the useful size that can carry an adult or a child.  With his kind and gentle nature he has successfully introduced many people to the art of horse riding and is always a popular too as a first horse for our livery clients.

He has now successfully introduced three young ladies into horse ownership as their “first horse” and in such a confident fashion that all three have moved on to much higher and better things within the equestrian field.  Jigsaw has proven time and time again he is worth his weight in gold and really is that rarity – the true confidence building equine.

Panda is a fabulous, stylish, chunky cob with a willing, trainable temperament who has done it all and is reliable in every way.  Three active basic paces he is an “uphill” forward going ride, but at one speed only – he never goes any faster than you want him to!  He has done cross country, hunting, driving, loads of hacking – alone or in company and on busy roads.  Good to box, shoe, clip and is always well behaved.

Winston

Status: Riding School/For Sale/For Loan
(Loan is to remain on site and to known clients only)

Height: 16.2hh
YOB: 2005
Gender: Gelding
Colour:  Grey
Breed: Irish Draught (Reg’d)
Owner: LHS
Price: £5,000 ono

Lucy picked up the lovely Winston at a horse sales in Ireland in July 2012 along with Jim. Originally from a riding school in Ireland, Winston knows his job and has a lovely temperament to go with it.   Whilst in Ireland he was an up to weight trekking horse, we have found him to be the perfect schoolmaster for teaching people to ride and jump with his consistent rhythm and manner of always looking out for his riders.  He is also well put together enough to make a heavy weight show hunter, so Winston is a multi-talented horse that proves a good horse is pretty much good at anything we ask them to do.


Domonic

Status: Riding School/For Loan
(Loan is to remain on site and to known clients only)

Height: 14.1 hh
YOB: 1993
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Chestnut
Breed: Show Pony Type
Owner: LHS & Half-Sharer Grace Rowe

A reliable and kind pony who will melt your heart with his loving look, he has looked after Alex de Brunner for many years but as she has now outgrown him he is available for half or full share. Domonic loves to jump and canter but he will make sure you are safe and sound on top!

Eric

Status: Riding School/For Sale/For Loan
(Loan is to stay on site and to known clients only)

Height: 11 hh
YOB: 1997
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Grey (White)
Breed: Welsh Section A
Owner: LHS
Price: Negotiable (to remain at Lavant House Stables)

 

Eric is a “chocolate box pony” as he really is the cutest pony you will ever see – so much so that it is always Eric who is dragged off to represent Lavant House Stables at any promotional activity where we can take a horse with us! 

Originally with a well-known professional equestrian family as a first pony for their grand daughter, Eric is also broken to harness and has huge background experience in all types of activities, which again make him the ideal first pony.  From the mum’s viewpoint, they don’t come much prettier than Eric either!

Jasper

Riding School/For Sale/For Loan

Height: 14.2 hh
YOB: 2008
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Dark Brown
Breed: Connemara x Thoroughbred Type
Owner: LHS & Half-Sharer Abi Coghlan
Price: £4,250 ono

This confident, sensible and quality gelding was purchased with four others during our trip to Southern Ireland, March 2013. 

Perfectly put together, Jasper is a classic Working Hunter Pony type who really ought to be in the show ring rather than a riding school, but my goodness does he know his job already.  Despite his young age he is a well used pony having been hunted in Ireland for two years by a (now) ten year old girl and she has done a super job producing him.

He is a fabulous type of pony that are usually very hard to find and he is very much the sort that would excel at whatever one decided to do with him.

 

 

 

 

 

Munchkin

Status:  Riding School/For Loan
(Loan is to remain on site and to known clients only)

Height: 11 hh
YOB: 1996
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Blue Roan
Breed: Welsh Section A
Owner: LHS

Munchkin has been with us for many years now having arrived originally because he quite simply needed to be kept busy doing something and no just standing around in a field as a pet until his young owners had time to ride him during the school holidays!

Arriving with a list of health issues to make your hair curl and quite definitely needing professional management, Munchkin just keeps on going and is quite definitely the perfect pony to first teach your child to ride on – he goes when asked and stops when asked and is simply lovely to handle from the ground. 

Munchkin is a very special pony and particularly more so now for being in our riding school where lots of children get the opportunity to realise just how special he is!

Pablo

Status: Riding School/ For Sale/For Loan
(Loan is to remain on site and to known clients only)

Height: 12.2hh
YOB: 2004
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Bay
Breed: Irish pony
Owner: LHS
Price: £4,500 ono

This fabulous jumping pony was brought over from Ireland having caught our eye whilst visiting the autumn sales.  A super type with a cheeky white face he has 101 Show Jumping points on his card and easily achieves 1m course double clears.  He is a straightforward pony that has not been buzzed up as so many jumping ponies can be and is easy to do in all respects: to ride, handle, clip, box, shoe and in traffic.  This is the pony all of us who work in the equine industry seek for our own children.

 

Pebbles

Status: Riding School/For Loan/For Sale
(Loan is to remain on site and to known clients only)

Height: 11 hh
YOB: 2001
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Bay
Breed: Welsh Section A (Reg’d)
Owner:  LHS & Half-Loan Owner Hannah West
Price: £1,250 (To remain at Lavant House Stables)

Pebbles is a “picture-perfect” pony with his striking colour, big round tummy and very dainty head.

The confident Pebbles really does know it all – he knows how to teach our smaller children to canter and (very small) jumps and has the perfect manners to match. Pebbles is the ideal starter pony and we know we are very lucky to have him with us.  He is safe on or off the lead rein and whilst he loves children, he is not so keen on adults.

Rocky

Status: Riding School/ For Sale/For Loan
(Loan is to remain on site and to known clients only)


Height: 13.3hh
YOB: 2007
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Skewbald
Breed: Irish 
Owner: LHS
Price: £2,750 ono

Rocky is a well marked, quality type of skewbald (tri-coloured) gelding who has been recommended as being quiet in traffic and known to have hunted a whole season in Ireland whilst also competing in training shows.  This has produced a great second pony who knows his job, is forward going but without being scary!

Squeak

Status: Riding School

For Sale/For Loan

Height: 12 hh
YOB: 1999
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Grey
Breed: Welsh Section B Type
Owner: LHS

Squeak is an ideal first pony and has proven these credentials by successfully introducing several young owners over the years into the skills of horse-ownership.  A pretty pony, he arrived with our other stars Eddie and Ozzie, and has participated in many Pony Club activities both on and off the lead rein.  Children can handle him very easily and being a bit of a character further endears him to his child riders!

Todd

Status: Riding School

For Sale/For Loan

Height: 11hh
YOB: 1997
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Strawberry Roan
Breed: Welsh Section B
Height: 11.3hh
Owner: LHS

Todd came to us because he was so naughty at his previous home!  Whilst Todd quickly settled into being a brilliant riding school pony, he also successfully attended many off site Pony Club activities and Hunter Trials with the proprietor’s daughter when she was younger. 

Todd does it all, he’s good on the flat, over fences and hacks out calmly.  Children can handle him easily and safely and he really knows his job inside-out.  The perfect first pony for any small child – definitely worth his weight in gold.

Tubby

Status: Riding School/For Sale/For Loan

Height: 12.2hh
YOB: 1993
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Grey
Breed: Irish Pony
Owner: LHS

Tubby is a smart little pony who has been there, seen it, done it and got the T-shirts – all of them! He has been a regular local Pony Club competitor and now in the twilight of his years we are privileged to have this multi-talented schoolmaster available to pass on his expertise to our child riders.

Tyler

Status: Riding School

For Loan

Height: 13.2 hh
YOB: 1993
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Flea Bitten Grey
Breed: New Forest
Owner: LHS
Loan Owners: Dillon King & Eve Jolly

Tyler has been a riding school pony all his life and is fantastic at the job – he is also a bit of a character which we all love .  A handsome, no-nonsense pony with a lot of experience but who is thankfully no longer the escape artist he used to be in the past, Tyler pretty much suits anybody as a first pony.
