Gallon Ray Star – 14hh Roan Pony – Gelding

14hh Roan Gelding, Year of birth 2014

Gallon Ray Star aka Star was imported from Ireland by Sally 0n 26th November 2019.

 A real head turner with his gorgeous roan colouring, Star is the type that every little rider imagines when they picture their dream pony. The quintessential Pony Club pony/all-rounder, Star is a snaffle mouthed stunner, capable of turning a hoof to anything!

Forward going and so eager to please, Star would make a perfect second pony. As he naturally sits in front of the leg without being ‘whizzy’, he would be the perfect step up for a child coming off their first pony and wanting to progress with their riding.

Whilst Star works very sweetly on the flat and would certainly be capable of producing an obedient dressage test, his real talents lie in the jumping arena! Currently popping round a course of show jumps set at 80cm, he has a superb clean jumping technique and rarely touches a pole. As such he is sure to be great fun at shows as he is bound to produce double clears time after time. 

Star carries this keen but level headed attitude out onto the cross-country course, where he is a bold, forward ride but remains impeccably snaffle mouthed! An absolute dream to ride cross-country, he never second guesses his rider or produces a moment’s hesitation to his fences, and as such he is truly incredibly confidence giving. He really gives the feeling that he would take on anything but without any of the fireworks you would usually associate with a good jumping pony!

With this jumping and cross-country prowess, Star would make an ideal working hunter pony.

Whilst he is sure to be in the ribbons wherever he goes, if his new jockey is more content to explore the countryside with their equine companion, he would also fit the bill for a hacking home as he is a safe, snaffle mouthed hack both on and off road.

It is clear that Star can be trusted to look after your child whilst they are on his back, but one of the best things about this pony is that he is so good to handle on the ground too. He has an amazingly sweet, even tempered nature which makes him a doddle to catch, lead, groom and tack up. He is also incredibly polite to clip and to shoe.

 

This smashing gelding really would be a ‘Star’ addition to any family!
