  • Rising 5yo (May) registered NF pony with quality bloodlines

This pony oozes presence and has a really solid stature - a leg on each corner and good depth of chest and bone. He is a weight carrier and could easily take up to 12stone therefore he would be suitable as a mother-daughter share or for a competitive teenager that wants to go far.

Tony is an absolute delight to have around the yard. He's friendly and inquisitive in character and very good to do on the ground. Will be lead with other horses politely and is one of the easiest to handle on the yard. He will stand whilst even the smallest of children brush him and fuss over him.
Good to do for dentist, vet, farrier, clip, box, catch, bath, groom, plait.

Tony rides into a light contact and has a soft mouth, he is easy to get onto the bit, even for the younger riders. He is active in his paces and a responsive ride so would naturally suit a quieter rider as he doesn't require a huge amount of kicking to get going. He has an expressive walk and relaxed rhythm, the trot is rangey and he cab really keep up with bigger horses out hacking. The canter is becoming more and more uphill as he develops in strength.

Tony has proven his ability in the dressage ring, the judges are very complimentary and he is really holding his own against the rest of the competition. He's been placed every time out with scores up to 67%.

He is currently schooling over 70/80cm tracks an has seen fillers and combinations. Popped around felbridge 70cm course. He has the scope to take someone up to metre tracks with ease. Tony has schooled over XC fences and seen ditches and water. With more experience around fences he would be a seriously classy event pony, he's agile and responsive to turn so could also make a quick SJ pony against the clock.

Tony is 100% in traffic and he will lead or follow out on the roads/fields. Not strong or fizzy. He's been out with the Kent & Surrey Bloodhounds to the beach where he was impeccably behaved around 20+ other horses. Popping over the groynes for fun.

I've used him for lead rein lesson
