We had been looking for a pony for a while a mother and daughter share, I’ve had ponies/horses most my life and now my 7 year old daughter is keen to learn. We came across this page and after looking for a while got in touch with Gerty, I explained I was looking for a mother/daughter share and told her the ponies I had seen I was interested in, she told me that all these ponies were still available at the time but reminded me that the ones I was looking at although honest were young, so checked that I would be able to bring on a young pony, which was great and very honest of her.
We decided to go for Jerry as he was 13’2 so although still just now a bit big for my daughter she would grow into him and he’s big enough for me to ride too! Because it was lock down and the travel dominoes were not operating Gerty let us put w deposit down on Jerry and kept him for us until transport was available to Scotland! He was bought over by Eric Gilles everything went smoothly and he came off the lorry a bit flustered but great.
We’ve not had him just over 6 weeks and he’s proving to be such a lovely genuine pony and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for him & my daughter, he will stand in the stable and be brushed for hours, absolutely great on the ground has amazing manners. We let him settle for a while before riding him, then got his new tack fitted and have started riding him and you would never believe he was only 4, he adapts to his rider with me he’ll work beautifully and do everything I ask of him his movements are amazing, then my 7 year old beginner novice daughter can get on him and he’ll slowly walk round taking great care of her on or off the lead rein! We couldn’t be happier with him, and are so glad we purchased from Irish sports equine! My daughter now has a new best friend who because of him being so young still will have many years of fun with him – thank you so much!
