Jingo is my daughters 10 year old 14.2hh Newforest X French Trotter gelding. He would either suit a happy hacking home or as a project for someone.
He hacks alone or in company, but can be strong in open spaces so not a novice ride. He is easy to catch, groom, clip, shoe, tack up etc. Never bucks, rears, kicks or nips.
He has the ability to make a super competition pony in the right hands as he has done with previous owners. Due to him coming to us having being used as a hunter he needs a lot of work re-schooling especially with his canter (possibly due to being a Trotter). We unfortunately do not have the facilities or time to work with him on this.He has been to PC and done XC with my 13 year old daughter and although he jumps with plenty of scope he needs work on his control and pace.
Jingo needs a very calm and confident rider as he is a spooky pony but his spooks are not unseating, he just needs encouragement to go past things that he finds scary. He's been to the beach a few times and has loved it and often hacks through woods and on the roads. He's absolutely perfect in traffic and will stand and wait until the car has passed or will happily walk/trot past. Jingo is very sweet natured and affectionate once he trusts you and the more you get to know him the more confident he gets. This is a very sad sale for me and my daughter so will only let him go to the right person. Please message for more details and price. Tack, rugs etc will come with him at extra cost.
