We are looking for a safe pony for my small 10 year old daughter a confidence giver off lead. Having had her current 12.2hh pony for 6 years unfortunately he has cushions and has become too frail to take her onto the next level. (fine size wise but would look at ponies up to 13.3hh)
My daughter is riding off the lead and wanted to learn to jump (only tiny at the moment). We would like something we can take out to local shows and do a bit of everything on. Clear round, dressage, (currently doing walk and trot tests) possible showing at local level (but not essential), young handler, local fun gymkhana, hacking and generally having fun at riding club level and possible PC.. Including regular lessons.
Non spooky, sharp or wizzy type and not strong as she is small for her age. My daughter is a nice quiet rider so squeeze and go type rather than a kick along so nicely schooled but a pony that is too forward or fast would worry her.
A pony that is not worried if the rider becomes slightly unbalanced or gets left behind over a jump and that would just pop over a jump while she is still learning rather than jump it big. No stoppers please.
Well behaved at shows with minimal working in or lunging.
No bucker's, bolter's, rearers or nappy ponies.
Good to hack out and with rural traffic.
Excellent to handle, good to catch and load onto a trailer. No biting or kicking and easy for a child to lead around and happy to be messed with and rode around the field bareback. Must love attention.
Good to catch and load onto a trailer.
No health issues please laminitus or sweet itch.
Loving 5* experienced kind horsey home awaits the right pony.
Would prefer trial period, LWVTB or loan
We are in the Shropshire area
