Jack competes in 3 classes; gets 3 ribbons!
Be in the ribbons with Jack! Jack is in training with VHSA hunter champion Kelsi Murray of Reedwind Farm, Powhatan Va. He is nicely started WTC, knows his leads, has been started over fences, and is learning bending and yielding and coming into the bridle quite nicely. Placed in Pony Pleasure. 11 yrs old, professionally started this July 2 . It is a later start than most, but for a pony who will probably jump for a living, no mileage on those joints is a distinct advantage.
Jack's movement is exceptional, with tracking up plus overstride, he has a big step indeed. He is amazingly comfortable to ride. Whoa is his favorite command and yet, he is a naturally forward mover. He's jumped, um, some big things around the farm so look for more of that in his over fences video, coming soon!
Jack will stand for the cross ties (sleeps on them!), for vet and farrier, he will bathe in the wash stall with dogs under foot and a fan roaring. He stands quietly for mounting. He can be loaded on the trailer solo with no drama, and unloaded by one person just as easily. It would be hard to find more impeccable ground manners, in fact. Is he ready to come to your place? Well prices for a fall sale at $5,000
On Oct 27th we put a beginnerish rider on Jack to see his response. He was a rock star! Warning this unedited video of lesson and hack is nearly 30 minutes long.
