Shanbo Jack

Shanbo Jack – 14.1hh – Connemara Gelding – Foaled 21 May 2016

Jack was imported from Ireland by Sally in July 2020.

This extremely smart gelding is very true to type and displays many of the characteristics one would expect to find in a top-class Connemara.  His superbly well-balanced conformation and neat head with a kind, intelligent eye are real trademarks of the breed and as such he is likely to be the judge’s darling in the show ring; that is if showing happens to be the calling of his new owner!

If showing is not your thing however, Jack’s blatant athleticism and trainable temperament are sure to see you through in whichever discipline takes your fancy.

As he is a short coupled, finer type, Jack would be the perfect fit for a capable teenager or a lightweight adult rider.

Under saddle, Jack is a forward thinking and sensitive yet polite, finger-tip ride. Truly an unspoiled canvas on the flat, Jack has good basic paces and an excellent attitude to his work but the scope is there for his new owner to improve upon this and truly make him their own.

Testament to the super work ethic the Connemara pony is renowned for, Jack is also showing real promise in the jumping arena. Although currently jumping single fences, he shows great aptitude over his fences and is jumping uprights and oxers with a good technique.

Outside of the arena, Jack’s uncomplicated nature is still abundantly clear. He has hacked out well round the wide, open spaces of our fields without blotting his copybook once!

Also level headed and reliable on the ground, Jack is a pleasure to handle and do in all regards.

The versatility of the Connemara really shines through with this lad, who shows all the makings of a classy all-rounder. Whilst he has the looks, brains and ability to do well in working hunter classes, he also shows more than enough scope to become a super ladies hunter or unaffiliated show jumping pony.

Ready for his next home where he can build a lasting relationship with his lucky new owner; Jack is sure to progress in leaps and bounds with the one on one attention you won’t be able to stop yourself lavishing upon him!
