Pony of the week: Rhubarb Crumble

BY: Horse Deals

Pony of the week: Rhubarb Crumble
Pony of the week: Rhubarb Crumble

All-rounder 14.2hh palomino gelding Rhubarb Crumble (Rhu) is currently up for sale on Horse Deals, owner Juli Carter tells us more about him…

Q: How long have you owned Rhu for?

A: We’ve owned Rhu for the past nine years. I bought him for my daughter.

Q: What kind of owner would suit him?

A: Rhu would suit someone who wants to compete at local level so is an ideal second pony. He is an all-rounder/ Pony Club pony and would suit a confident rider. He has a big jump so would need a capable rider. He is jumped by teenagers and is forward going, he will never stop at a jump and would rather knock a pole than stop. He is a safe jumper and would also suit a small adult for riding club activities. He would be ideal for someone with a bit of ambition to take him out to local shows.

Q: What competition experience does Rhu have?

A: Rhu won the working hunter class and went on to stand champion at Brent Pelham show in June this year. We haven’t had the time to take him out recently, however he has taken part in a lot of Pony Club activities in the past and also cross-country training. His forte is show jumping as he has a huge jump and loves it. We have taken him out hunting and he is great. He is bold, but doesn’t rush off, he stands still when required and is very confident.

Q: What is the best thing about Rhu’s temperament?

A: Rhu is easy to work and a very sweet pony. Young girls stand around and groom him with confidence, as he eats his haynet. He is a real confidence giver and has turned my daughter from a nervous jumper, to a confident rider who will jump anything. He is very easy to get on with and you can cuddle him without any fuss. He is not bargy and has no bad habits.

Q: Why are you selling him?

A: Unfortunately he is currently a wasted talent and he needs someone to take him further. He is a much loved pony and this is a very sad sale so all potential homes will be vetted.

Fantastic opportunity to purchase a top class eventer. Ansiei, The HSI fully approved thoroughbred stallion. A top class racehorse and Athlete, Ansiei is a stakes winner. He has a pedigree containing not one but two crosses of the very influential Grey Sovereign. The Grey Sovereign line has been extremely influential in infusing blood in European warmbloods and appears in the pedigree of many of the top showjumpers in the world including Olympic performers Clinton and Corrado. Through his son Fortino and grandson Caro, Grey Sovereign appears in virtually every studbook with performance horses in Europe he also appears in the Irish Stud book through stallions such as watermill swatch and power blade so to have a stallion with not one but two crosses of Grey Sovereign and one cross of Caro ( sire of Olympic showjumper Pingpong and international showjumping performers Tashling and Charming Wind as well as a Kentucky derby winner ) is a fantastic opportunity. An athletic mover with an uphill build histrot and canter has already caught the attention of many performance breeders, but where Ansiei has really caused a stir is the way he has taken to jumping. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5uwkQ4T-CZc&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D5uwkQ4T-CZc The sire of this foal's dam is I'm a Star. He was also the sire of the dam of this years Hamburg Derby winner with rider Gilbert Tillmann - Hello Max (1994 Hallo x Im a Star).
