HORSE OF THE MONTH: BOBBY

Our August Horse Of the Month winner is Bobby, who was nominated by Lisa. Bobby is now the lucky new owner of a pair of exercise boots from Pique Equestrian.

Bobby hunting“This is Bobby who is also known as Whistledown Double O Seven. He is a 12.1hh, eight year old welsh pony bred at the Whistledown Stud. We have had Bobby since he was a weanling and he is my eight year-old daughter, Elisha’s, main man. This little fellow is a one in a million pony and the more we ask of him the more he gives. In April, Elisha finished the pony club season just beginning to ride off the lead rein and she has recently hunting him (off the lead). This might sound like a silly thing to do to your eight year-old, but this little pony looks after her with his life and he is an ace on the field. He is more than happy to canter along in a group and doesn’t fuss if he gets left behind. Elisha’s riding has come so far in the short hunt season due to the nature of this amazing little pony. Elisha has big goals for Bobby including doing some show jumping and a one day event this season. She would love a pair of boots for Bobby as they begin their jumping careers together.”

Pique Equestrian is located in Queenstown, Central Otago and are stockists of bridles, browbands and boots.
