150cm RAS (however could definitely be measured as a pony and if produced as a jumper this would be where he’d excel due to stride length)
Ollie has three SUPER paces with a look at me presence complimented by his great work ethic and soft nature. He has begun his jump schooling showing a textbook technique and is bold and keen. I would love to see him produced by a capable kid to be a showhunter/showjumping pony as I believe he has all the makings to be superb.
Ollie has been shown inhand and under saddle in the show ring including HOY as a 3yr where he was Runner-Up Ridden Purebred Gypsy of the Year. He has had lots of outings under saddle and is an absolute gentleman to prepare and travel.
Ollie is perfect to handle in every way, a delight to have around and very respectful. He would make an excellent prospect to produce as a jumping pony or allrounder but equally could make a super trekking, low level mount!
Now for his only downfall - in some locations at some times of the year (like currently at mine) he suffers a head flick. I have him off grass and on supplements to work towards managing it. He has lived in various parts of the country and at some locations has never flicked and others he’s had a flick. He is still rideable when he is head flicking and I have found that it predominantly shows at the trot, rarely at the canter and a little bit at the walk. With this in mind he is only available to someone who is willing to manage his symptoms IF he is symptomatic at their property.
