Competition History

Pru Calvert bought Jacko as a 4 yr old off the track in Launceston, Tasmania.

Prue came to Clarendon park in march 2006 as a trainee and stayed for 2 years. In this time Jacko moved up the grades from just into Pre Novice to placing well at 2* level.

Prue had had a sucessful year in 2007 winning the SA Young Rider of the Year award and the SA Barastoc Eventing Leaderboad after winning and placing at many events.

Running 2nd in the CNC** at Werribee in August, Jacko was heading to 2* at Adelaide until EI stopped all competitions.

Prue completed her traineeship in Dec 2007 and moved to Wagga to start radiography at Uni in 2008.Since then Prue has decided she cannot do justice to both Jacko and Uni and has decided to sell him to someone to take on to 3* and 4*.

Jacko is sound and ready to go on up the grades. He can be a little pushy on the grond but is a great ride . He is ideally suited to an experienced and competitive rider wanting to compete sucessfully at 4* level .

Jacko is realistically priced for a horse of this caliber and ability. He is located at Prue's home in Tasmania and is in full work
