145cm, 9yr old German Riding Pony by Hilkens Denali.
Very sadly it is time for Dennis to find a new home as I make the transition onto hacks.
We have produced Dennis to Medium level in the past 4 years and have enjoyed great success regionally and nationally. This season our successes included Reserve Champion NZ Dressage Pony of the Year at HOY, and South Island Pony Champion 2018/19.
He is very established in his lateral work, his flying changes are becoming established and he definitely has the potential to go further up the levels. He is soft, supple and overall a pleasure to ride. He is very trainable and learns easily. We have had training from some of New Zealand’s best trainers, so his basics are very established.
Dennis’s movement and conformation has the Wow factor - he stands out from the crowd. He has had as much success in showing as in dressage. This season at the Nelson RAS Royal Show he took out Supreme Saddle Hunter Pony, Supreme Paced & Mannered Pony and Overall Supreme Pony of the Show. He has been hugely successful in the saddle hunter ring and has never come home without a champion ribbon.
Before we purchased Dennis he had jumped low heights, however, this has not been a focus for us. With a confident, experienced rider he could progress further.
He is quirky, sensitive, and best suited to a confident, thoughtful rider. He is very easy to manage on the ground and is great to shoe, clip, and travels nationally very well either in a float or truck. He has travelled extensively throughout NZ in the past three seasons and he does so very well continuing to eat and drink happily. He also enjoys to hack on his days off.
Dennis is a pleasure to ride and handle and is loved by everyone who knows him. He will suit a competitive, ambitious young rider or adult who is looking to learn and be competitive.
Price will be negotiable to the right home.
