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.

This horse is a total confidence giver and would suit someone coming off ponies. She is a bold , honest girl who will jump anything..fillers, water trays, roll tops, coffins. She has jumped 1.20 at home and competed up to open level cross country. She knows her job and loves it, whilst looking after the rider. Never refuses, runs out or stops. Will give you confidence all the the way. Hacks out alone or in company. Excellent stable manners and will come to call. I have owned her 3 years and she has given me so much confidence but sadly Ive out grown her. She competition fit and competing regular along with hunting. Never spooky out hacking! She always in ribbons and competing unaffiliated to 3ft. I have put her on a ticket and again double clears in novice Snaffle mouth, never pulls, strong , bucks , rears or bolts. Great to be clipped and with farrier. Will travel great and stand on box quiet all day. Shes well schooled and light in the hand, I wouldn't say she is a forward going horse in theschool, therefore safe and confidence giving. She does wind suck very mildly, usually after feed but not out in the filed..Hence price. Vetting welcome Hard decision to sell but she would make a fantastic horse for someone who starting to compete. She has been there and done it!
