Good looking 15hands (LHC) 8yo skewbald gelding. Has done a bit of everything from showing (champion/reserve champion many times) to XC. Very nicely schooled with a great jump. 100% traffic, not spooky, ideal teenagers fun little horse, RC/PC etc. No vices. Mungo has been reluctant to hack alone, he will hack on his own but needs a competent rider to do so, we think that if he got used to not getting away with anything he would be good with time. Current owner works abroad a lot and has lacked the opportunity to provide Mungo with consistent hacking work. Due to her work schedule she mainly has to hack alone hence the reason for the sale and price.
It was a successful morning BS at Wix on Saturday, Flame jumped clear in the clear round, she then jumped a super double clear in her first competitive BN to lead all the way through until Paddy went in and pipped her to the post by .14 of a second!
Can’t complain with a 1st and 2nd, Paddy then had a couple down in the Discovery but jumped well overall.
Rosie won a duck for Eliza!
Our first trip to Beechwood EC for some BS, the three 4yo’s last outing before they had their shoes off (Jerry already had his off!) for their breaks. Paddy, Billy and Flame all jumped clear in the clear round. Paddy then jumped double clear to win the BN and a duck! Flame jumped a lovely round for 1 down on a ticket. Also on a ticket in the BN Billy was showing off, jumping his socks off until he kicked back (kicking the pole and showing off a tad too much!), this unsettled him for the next fence but then finished the course well. Jerry was the only one that didn’t get to jump the clear round first and having never jumped indoors he jumped a nice round for a couple down, think he was surprised how quickly the jumps came up! He got it all together in the Discovery to jump a lovely double clear for 4th. All good ponies 🙂
Rosie did some training with Sue on tuesday 7th November with all the ponies jumping really well. Rosie says Paddy is great to work with as he’s always improving. The three 4yo’s had their last sessions with Sue before their break and all of them were fab. Jerry, Flame and Billy 🙂
Another fun days hunting was had on Saturday 4th November with the East Essex, Flame is certainly a great hunter and is likely to have a shorter break than the other 4yo’s since she’ll probably come back in to be Rosie’s hunter over Christmas!
Laura was back on Jim, whilst we had Nicola on board Dazzler. Natalie and Wispa decided to jump on the lorry last minute, when their PC rally was cancelled due to the wet weather forecast. Luckily we’re no fair weather riders!
All 3 of these are highly thought of by us, however we have a lot of others in the field needing work so advertising before they all get turned away for a break…

Last BS show at Codham of the year today and we made the most of it with 4 having an outing. Flame jumped her first course for an unlucky pole in the clear round. Both Billy and Paddy jumped easy clears. Paddy followed on from last week with another double clear BN, Billy jumped his first BN on a ticket for a lovely round, maybe just getting a bit tired towards the end to have the last two poles in the jump off.
Jerry was on fire today jumping double clear not only BN but Discovery too to finish 4th in both! Paddy was 2nd BN and then jumped his first Discovery for a couple of mistakes but Rosie says he’s feeling more and more confident with each outing. Good ponies 🙂 the 4yo’s (Jerry, Billy and Flame) will be going on holiday in a few weeks, they’re all such lovely horses so if anyone is interested in any of them be quick before they’re turned out.
Billy jumped a brill clear in the clear round as did Paddy. Paddy then jumped the British Novice as Rosie managed to persuade his owner Alex to register him, she was pleased to be proven right when he jumped double clear to win!
Jerry also jumped a lovely round in the BN for one down in the jump off, we’ll blame that on his excursions at the beach yesterday!
Brill day competing babies at Keysoe ode! Since we sold one of our entries Jerry was quickly pulled out of ‘take it easy semi-holiday’ mode to fill the slot in the 90, just love this horse. He’s done 3 events this year, just by chance they have all been at Keysoe! But it’s so nice to see improvement… dressage scores have gone 41, 37 and today 33 🙂 pole SJ to complete our true 4 faultitis day (they all had a pole!). Then the most easy clear XC, we left before results.
Paddy and Billy were in the 80. Billy did a green but very sweet first ever dressage test to score 37, 4 faults sj and a green but very genuine clear XC with 1.2 time to finish 9th, not bad for his first ever competition!
Paddy did a lovely test bar a wobbly last centre line for 33, another 4 (one of those days!) But fab clear XC to finish 4th! All super ponies 😀
Natalie also competed Wispa (4th pic) in the 80 since she was balloted from Little Downham, one down SJ just so she wasn’t the odd one out! Clear XC, well done Natalie and thank you for all your help!
**just seen online results, Jerry was 10th 🙂 **
