Jive was once a top-class Gymkhana pony that unfortunately, we have been led to believe, had been mistreated by a previous owner. Jive was then sold on to a lady who bought him for her young daughter to ride. However, it quickly became apparent that Jive was unaccustomed to being ridden in a careful and quiet manner and, therefore it was agreed that he was unsuitable for her daughter. Jive then came to us.
Jive despite his years and the splashes of grey in his coat, he is still very playful in the paddock; he can sometimes be a little cautious with strangers, but otherwise he is a very gentle and good-natured pony.
He lives with his field companions, General, Tommy, Winston, Minty, Malty, Bella, Marmite and Polly. He enjoys standing next to General, one of his field companions.
