Canberra is a very sweet and great moving XL riding pony and has everything for a successful future in the dressage rings: all three basic gaits are above average with ground coverage, expression and great rhythm. She has been started under the saddle recently, but she has such a positive working attitude and learns very quickly. She reacts very well to the riders aids and is comfortable and easy in the contact. Also in the daily handling she is easy and sweet, and can be handled by children without any problem. With the appropriate training she will become a great partner for the dressage sport for children, teenagers and light adults.
Canberra's sire is the riding pony stallion Chattanooga, who won his stallion performance test and riding horse classes at the age of three years. With four, five and six years he competed successfully in show jumping and qualified repeatedly for the Bundeschampionat.
In 2013 he won the VR Classics in Neumünster and was awarded by the Hanoverian association being the most successful Hannoverian show jumping pony.
The dam's sire Dirty Dancer, an offspring of FS Don't Worry, was successful in the dressage sport and also had a great reputation as dressage sire in the breeding of sport ponies.
With this XL German riding pony, experienced children, teenagers as well as light adults find a promising sport partner for a successful future in the dressage rings, but also for a relaxed hack and some jumps. A very nice pony for families with sportive objectives!
