T.B.S Kevin – ‘Little Kev’
14hh Pure Bred Black Connemara Gelding – 7 yrs
Fully registered Green Book Connemara sired by the legendary ‘Burning Daylight’ (Grade A Show-jumper, jumping up to 1.35m in Germany & one of only two Connemara stallions ever to be on the High Performance Pony Dressage squad). A sire of many successful show jumpers and eventers.
Tested Double Negative for Hoof Wall Separation.

A really super pony with lots of scope, completely snaffle mouthed he adores his job & is sure to excel in the right home. He is sensitive to what his rider is asking of him with a lovely, light mouth & a fantastic attitude.
Loves to jump & at a recent SJ competition went clear at 70cm after not competing for some time. He is careful & brave, not at all bothered by fillers. A super, easy chap for someone to produce further – could easily do 1m+ tracks in time. He has a BS record from 2018 & more recently has done Pony Club with a young novice rider.
In the arena his paces are regular, rhythmic & active. He goes in a nice outline & is very trainable & is sure to progress quickly.
With more experience he may make a super event pony, he has been XC schooled in the past.
Loves to hack, he will go alone & in company. He is very non-spooky & is great with farm traffic including tractors, trailers, quads plus bikes & dogs – both at home around the arena & out hacking. He is bold alone but can stop & look, nothing more, & needs a little confidence from his rider with a nudge forward. In company he will go first, last, upside & will lead event horses past scary things! He isn’t strong, is very good in open spaces & pulls up easily when asked.
He is a sweet, friendly boy with an inquisitive nature & loves attention. Great to catch (puts his head in the headcollar), lunge, easy to load in box or trailer, travel, teeth, shoe & clip. Will happily stand in on his own in the stable without a fuss, be turned out alone or with others (not dominant at all), very easy to do in all ways.

He is level headed & easy & the type of pony that gets better the more different things are thrown at him, a typical connie that thrives on varied work and routine. He is not suitable for a novice rider or a young child as he is a little green for his age, ideally he would go to an experienced & active pony club/riding club or BSJA home with an older child/teen or small adult rider.
Ready and fit to go for 2021 season having the benefit of professional schooling until sold. Fully vaccinated & up to date with teeth / shoeing / worming /physio.
Very sad genuine sale & new home is of the utmost importance. He will bring a lot of love, fun & success to his next family where he will be cared for & where his natural talent can be developed. Past history known & happy to discuss. Current owner would love to keep in touch.
Excellent trial facilities available with indoor and huge outdoor arena, show jumps, arena cross country jumps, hacking. Viewings available adhering to social distancing. Based southwest near Tiverton, Devon. Genuine enquires only – Sorry, no loans or LWVTB’s.
