Emily is the nicest friendliest pony I have ever owned. She loves people and other horses and thrives with lots of fuss and affection. She is very easy to keep and a pleasure to have around. She is a safe and sensible hack both on and off lead rein and a lovely lead rein pony but very green off the lead rein in the school and can be quite sharp. She is never nasty and has no vices but is green and needs an experienced home because of her age. She has so much potential and would excel at showing.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Emily must be kept with other horses as she is so sociable. She lives out all year with me and although happy to be stabled would require daily turn out. Emily needs a home where she can be someones special pony and benefit from someones full time and attention. She needs a kind and sympathetic rider and someone who has the ability to bring a youngster on.

Riding Ponies are more like a small horse than a pony, with small heads and ears. They are compact, with sloping shoulders and a narrow front. Their feet are tough and they possess strong limbs. They are well-proportioned with comfortable gaits and free-flowing movement.

There are three types:

  • The show pony: the classic "show riding pony", show ponies resemble miniature show hack with pony features, and often contain Arabian or Thoroughbred blood. Show ponies are shown in three height sections - up to 12.2 high, 12.2 to 13.2 hands high and 13.2 to 14.2 hands high.
  • The show hunter: similar to the show pony, but with more substance. The pony should be suitable to carry a child across country. Height class divisions are the same as for show ponies.
  • The working hunter: stockier, more workmanlike, and expected to jump a short course of natural fences. Height class divisions are divided into 13 hands high and under and over 13 hands high. Fences should be no higher than 2ft 6 inches for ponies under 13 hands high and no higher than 3ft for ponies over 13 hands.
