Beautiful ARP, competitive with potential to burn: Beautiful Australian Riding Pony mare. 8yo and 13'3. Heaven has been a fabulous pony for my daughter. However, her legs never grew as fast as my daughters, so she is now sadly outgrown. As beautiful as she is we simply can't afford to keep paddock ornaments with bigger eventers now in the paddock :( and she is in her prime years. So she needs a new little rider to love her, who she can look after in return.

Heaven took my daughter safely around her first XC course 4 years ago (Heaven was 4, daughter was 8), they were an awesome pair and always finished in the placings. Perfect as a second pony or PC mount for a confident rider who wants to be competitive. She's a sensitive, sensible pony who will always do her best to please her rider. Heaven is forward moving, with great brakes and a soft mouth. Ridden in a snaffle for all phases.

Heaven is a fabulous little showjumper and is very steady and safe on a cross-country course. She is very quick on her feet, so games are always fun too. Dressage competitive at lower levels and very willing to learn. Balanced in all paces and very responsive. Easily adjustable pace. Lovely extended trot. Starting to relax into the contact more which is required to go to Grade 3 and beyond.

Competed very successfully through Grade 4, training well beyond that. Confidently jumps rounds to 90cm. Too many placings and ribbons to list. Has completed Grade 2 lines on XC under instruction so the scope and trainability is definitely there if you have the skill and/or drive to take her further.

Heaven has had very wide exposure over the 4 years we've owned her including pony club, adult riding club, eventing, showjumping, tetrathlon, many dressage, showjumping and cross-country clinics, mounted games, interschools, trail riding, swimming, navigation rides and even chasing cows. Under regular quality coaching and instruction for her whole time with us. She's a very pretty girl, turns heads and has been shown successfully at local shows. Heaven really does take everything in her small, precise stride.

Self-loads on float, easy to do everything with, she's barefoot, easy keeper, easy for child to prep, has no vices and is a real pleasure to have around. Up to date with dentist and worming. Vet check welcome.

Please note - she is currently only ridden very occasionally and can be a bit cold backed after a long spell. Example: she was pulled out of paddock recently for a pony club session (after being ridden only one other time in the 6 months prior) and she was her on her toes for about 10 minutes after which she settled and did some beautiful flatwork (and had a super jumping session after lunch). We never saw this when she was ridden at least once a fortnight. Nothing a confident rider can't handle. She is coming back into light work now and will be lightly campaigned until sold - price will rise accordingly.

She really has shown my daughter what PC and competition are all about, so we'd like to see her go to a lovely home where she will continue to be loved and bought on. If you think you have a small confident rider who would suit a sensitive horse (definitely not a kick-along-pony), we'd love to hear from you. Price negotiable, but quality home is not.
