For Sale: Pocket sized powerhouse eventing horse

 

Description

Currently ridden by Olympian Megan Jones, Kirby Park Irish Poseidon (Henry) is perfect for the smaller rider looking for an eventing pocket sized power house with proven breeding

If you’re small but are looking for a horse with unlimited scope in both jumping and movement then Henry is your man! He will go all the way with the right rider… and with Olympic and World Championship blood on both sides, Henry is bred to do it.

Sire: Kirby Park Nantamboo (TB/ASH) ASH Registered

Dam: Wrestwood Aphrodite (ISH) Dam sire: Wrestwood Neptune Imp UK. Neptune’s Dam is full sister to World Champion Eventer Priceless ridden by Ginny Leng

Henry is a super talented gelding with scope that surpasses his size; he is true pocket sized power house. He moves like a warmblood with elevated trot, big canter and a huge jump. He puts in a solid test every time and nearly always scores in the 40’s. He is bold cross country and show jumps clean nearly every time as well. He has won and placed in numerous competition in 2014 at Preliminary and Pre Novice (EA 105) and will go 1 Star in 2015.

Henry is a serious horse for a competitive rider, he is a snaffle mouth in all phases but is not for an inexperienced rider as he needs a confident rider.

A few famous horses from the same sire Kirby Park Nantamboo include:

Kirby Park Invader: one of Megan’s current 2* sensations who placed 3rd at the 2014 Australian International 3 Day Event CCI2*

Kirby Park Impress: 2nd after cross country at 2014 Australian International 3DE CCI 2* (couldn’t trot up on the Sunday due to some brush puncturing her fetlock)

Kirby Park Joy: 2* eventing sensation mare, who then went on to be an International Paralympic horse with Grace Bowman (4th 2010 WEG in Kentucky and team member 2012 London Olympics).

Henry is EA registered, Hendra vaccinated and  is able to be ASH registered (but is not currently).
