Fantom of the Opera (aka Jack-Jack)
2007 Dutch New Forest Pony by Forrest Flame. 13.2h. Friendly, sound, sane, talented, athletic, well-mannered and quiet at shows and at home. Used by two UC Davis Hunter/Jumper team members for about a year. Shown at all local horse shows and has gone to several clinics. Showing first level dressage, Pony hunters, and Beginner Novice Eventing. He has the talent to go FEI in dressage, and is doing half-steps/piaffe easily and sometimes spontaneously. He has always gotten 8s on gaits when shown.
This pony SUPER CUTE, a fun horse to hang out with, and just as talented and focused a pony as anyone could ask for. He gives every rider who has ever ridden him more confidence. He is an incredible pony hunter/jumper and great on trail rides. He has the movement of a dressage star, the jump of a full-sized horse, and the presence to win in any discipline. He thinks he is a 16.2h horse, and he'll convince you too with his smooth, expressive movement and presence! He tries hard to please, is very trainable, accommodating, focused, intelligent and affectionate. He is 13.3h and has been unshod his whole life. Currently he is being ridden by a 5'7", 160lb rider and occasionally a 5'6" 140lb. rider.
He started showing in 2016 by a young beginner in Dressage at training level (shown in pictures). He is now being shown dressage First Level 3 and training Second level movements, but he was shown last academic year by UC Davis hunter team members (see videos below). He has been shown and has attended clinics and has had dressage training up to second level, and showing first level. He was part of the UC Davis Hunter/Jumper team, as a lesson horse for 2 student riders. He will make a very fancy dressage pony, hunter, eventer (or even all three!).
His sire is Forest Flame, an imported Dutch New Forrest Pony, who was shown Prix Saint George before he was gelded and sold as a fancy East Cost children’s hunter. His mother is a very athletic, smart Welsh cross.
