Jasper is a fun, forward showjumping schoolmaster, looking for his new home. Jasper’s fit and ready go and would make a super pony club all rounder or low level competition horse. Would be great for a confident teenager.

Jasper loves to jump (whether showjumping or XC), is incredibly honest into a fence and will jump off any stride. He knows his job, is great in a warmup and loves a jump off turn. He easily goes double clear at 90cm showjumping (we flew round my first British Novice BS (on a ticket) a couple of weeks ago) and has jumped clear in both 80cm arena eventing and at the Eventer Challenge at Tweseldown in February. He happily schools over the 90cm and some 100cm fences out XC.

Jasper’s taken me, a first time horse owner, to competing regularly in all 3 disciplines. On the flat, Jasper consistently scores 67%+ in Prelim and has just achieved 64% in his first Novice with lots more marks to come as he gets more consistent in the contact and develops his mediums. We’ve started playing with changes too and he’s making good progress.

Jasper’s a good hack, happier in company if he’s somewhere new, and great in open spaces – fast and fun if you let him go but has brakes when needed. He’s snaffle mouthed in all disciplines. As he’s forward he isn’t suited to a novice.

Although he’s 16 (turning 17 in June) Jasper has a huge amount of working life left in him. He’s happiest when getting out and about and he does like to be in regular work.

He’s good to shoe, catch, clip and travels well in a lorry. Jasper is only for sale as the lorry we’ve been able to use up until now is being sold and Jasper won’t travel in a trailer.

Up to date with teeth, vaccinations and physio. Jasper had his hocks and stifles injected in October 2021 and his hocks re-done (routinely) in October 2022. He has been fine since and is in full work and very happy but may of course need them doing again in the future. Last 10 years of history known.

Available with tack.
