2014 - 14h – 7-year-old POA (Pony of the Americas) Gelding
Loves to hunt. Loves to jump. Loves to trail ride. He needs a kid who can do all these things.
Firecracker (named for his arrival at Kimberton Hunt Kennels on the 4th of July) has hunted extensively with the Kimberton Hunt Club in Chester, PA. Firecracker is big bodied, has lots of natural ability and a love for fox hunting, jumping, and being out on the trails, bridle paths and fields.
Firecracker, broke in 2016 mostly with a very experienced 9-year-old rider, hunted 3 seasons every single Saturday plus some weekdays. He last hunted regularly in 2020 but would be taken out of the pasture at a moment’s notice in 2021 to fill in whenever there was a need.
He has done local and 4H shows at 2’6” with simple changes. While he has always had a child rider, the child was experienced. If not ridden regularly, he may need an experienced rider to be the boss before he is back to all business.
He is full of personality and happily stands at crossties for hours while children pamper him, groom him and bath him. He stands perfectly for clippings and farriers. He currently has all 4 shoes, last done on August 18, 2021, but may go barefoot this winter. He has never had a lame step or any issues.
Firecracker knows dogs, and when he came to us, he easily welcomed the company of sheep that like to graze next to him and walk around his legs as well. I had hoped my children would be more ready to do the Pony Club fox hunts. He needs a hunt family that can take him over hill and dale like he did before.
