Monty has exceptional paces, really excelling at the lateral work which he finds so easy. Can do a basic flying change each way.
Monty has been x-country in the past, and would excel at combined training or arena eventing as has a huge jump and really enjoys it. He has done some small workers at Ellingham show as well.
Monty had a competition break for 18 months late 2016- early 2018 whilst I had a baby and has always been low mileage due to time constraints. He has done some BD competitions on a ticket but lack of funds and time has meant we have never become members, so he has no points to restrict you.
He is a super natured pony, happy to live with others or on his own. Hacks alone or in company but he does not do traffic. Very good and easy at shows, holds his own in a warm up and not fazed by boards and banners etc.
I have owned Monty for 8 years and it is a hard sale, but a young family and lack of time forces me to find him someone else to enjoy him and have fun as he is too good to sit in the field.
He is the same if not ridden for weeks, is used to only being ridden a couple of times a week and still go out and win at the weekend.
Good to clip, shoe, worm, teeth and load. Not a novice ride so please do not enquire if you are.
