A seriously talented 133 cms pony. He’d been “saved” by his previous owners as no other child could sit to his enormous buck! Hugh had not had a serious competition pony before and perhaps in hindsight a little adventurous of us buying him. After numerous falls (from the bucks) suddenly they clicked and there was no stopping them. They competed in 133 cms WHP competitions coming 2nd at both the RIHS and HOYS in 2015 and winning the prestigious Gold Cup Competition at the British Show Pony Society Championships, qualifying for the prestigious Gold Cup finals at Burghley Horse Trials where he came 3rd. They were the only combination to compete in both the Royal International Horse Show WHP Championship and The Horse of the Year Show Championship in 2015 out of the 133, 143, 153 and Intermediates first and second prizewinners. A tremendous achievement.
Hugh preferring show jumping would often jump this tiny little chap with a massive jump in Newcomers where 14.2 show jumping ponies would dwarf the pair. We always said he was a “smaller” version of Milton, Caroline Bradley and John Whittakers former rides such was the beautiful and powerful way he would jump around a course.
