Piebald, Gelding, 4 years, 11 hands
Shetland X Welsh
4 years going on 44 years!!!! I cannot speak highly enough of this much loved child’s pony. He really does have the most amazing laid back calm temperament. Absolutely adored by all that know him!
This year he has given bags and bags of confidence to both young and old child alike, who are either just learning or have had their confidence knocked by naughty ponies (Many references available from parents and their kids)
Genuine, kind, honest, reliable, and trustworthy - Just a few words that are regularly used to describe him. Although only small he rides like a proper pony, both on and off the lead rein. Walks, trots and canters in a school, a field, and across acres of land, both alone and in company
Trots over poles, cross poles or will jump a proper size course up to 2ft6, but would also jump bigger as he loves to please!
Always ridden in a snaffle, never strong. He goes with a little kick when ridden off the lead rein - The tiniest pull and he will stop! Even if cantering with others in an open space. He also has a great canter for a child to learn on and is very comfy (so I’m told!). He is also equally as happy going for a gentle stroll on the country lanes
Attended local shows with success, Included show jumping and cross country, and regularly goes in the trailer with the big young horses to go schooling, where he often gives them a lead over new and spooky fences!
Handled always by the children, being caught, washed, brushed, oiled, and generally enjoys being played with - Exactly how a child’s pony should be! Always mannered and polite. Does not have to be ridden regularly and can be left for weeks and weeks and is always the same
Will turn out alone or in company (with mares and geldings) Never make a fuss if you take friends away
He is really easy to look after, straight forward, an absolute joy and pleasure to own
As you can tell this pony is much loved and cherished and it is a very difficult decision to part with him. As our circumstances have now changed we would like to find a new special home for our very special pony
£1,500 - Brand new bridle, Cub saddle and rug can be included
