This pony has had a history of being passed about and as a result takes a little while to settle. He took a few weeks with us. Once he trusts you he is a cuddly fun pony who has taught my son so much. He is super on the LR and qualified for Sunshine Tour in jumping class. He has competed at local dressage, been to polo, done LR mounted games and off LR practice (though needs strong rider). He is turned out with mares and geldings including by big horses. He lunges well and is very voice responsive.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Experienced family with other horses and ideally an older sibling/lightweight adult who can provide exercise. In an ideal world with an even younger sibling so the loan can continue. Would prefer pony to be kept with other ponies on similar regimes although he has coped with being left for part of the day if we have taken our other pony out. A child who is 'gutsy' and enjoys jumping and cantering as this pony will happily do both on the LR or lunge.

    Snaffle for dressage. I have used a gag on him for jumping.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Has seen farm traffic and show traffic and been ridden on quiet lanes. Grazing is next to main road and pony regularly ridden in field next to traffic.

Please describe your horses behaviour when hacking out alone and in company

hacks alone i.e with leader due to size and has been fine alone and in company. Has been led of my mare although we have not done much of this since my son rides off LR.

Details of any individual behavioural traits which may influence the type of person best suited to take on the horse

This is a pony that needs understanding handling but is a quality pony that will do well in the show ring at local level and possibly higher (unshown by us apart from fun classes where always placed).

Details of the activities that the horse must not participate in due to previous injury

None.

Explanation whether this horse is simply a good doer or whether he is prone to laminitis

As a Sec A he is prone to weight issues and therefore laminitis. He is muzzled at home with restricted grazing.

Details of any problems when being ridden

In my experience and having checked back in his history this pony is known to have 'run off' with his rider three times when off the LR. This has happened twice with my eight year old son who wasn't unseated either time although the pony was very quick. He stopped by himself on both occasions. Once was napping back to other ponies at a rally and the second time was following a spook where he ran the length of the school then stopped.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

No he can live out all year round

Need to be put on restricted grazing to limit weight gain?
