Maisie is a pleasure to keep. On the ground she has a lovely nature and is easy do and be around. She is good with children but better with adults and it is easy to bond with her. She gives a lot back. She will stand around to be groomed or clipped, is good with farrier and loads well. She could be ridden by an adult but is being advertised as a companion as her rearing when ridden is dangerous for children and at her height not many adults would be able to ride her. She behaves well at shows.

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

Rescued in December 2016, Maisie came with a rearing problem. She was sent to be professionally retrained and found a competent teenage girl to bring her on. She improved tremendously during this time and was on track to become a great little pony club pony. The rearing continued a bit during this time but she excelled at cross country and jumping and enjoyed her job. When outgrown she was reloaned unsuccessfully and returned because of full height rearing thus making her unsuitable as a child’s pony

New Forest

The New Forest Pony or New Forester is one of the recognised Mountain and moorland or Native pony breeds of the British Isles. The breed is valued for its hardiness, strength and sureness of foot. It is indigenous to the New Forest in Hampshire in southern England, and thousands of poniescan still be seen running loose there.

Characteristics:

The upper height limit is 148 cm. There is no lower limit but New Forest ponies are seldom under 12 hands (48 inches, 122 cm). They are normally shown in two height sections 138 cm and under (competition type A) and over 138 cm (competition height B). The New Forester has a well built frame, muscular hind quarters and a good depth of body. The head should show pride, the shoulders should be well sloped with deep reach, and the legs show an even line with strong joints and solid hooves. New Forest ponies should be of riding type. The larger ponies, while narrow enough for small children are quite capable of carrying adults. The smaller ponies, though not up to so much weight, often have more show quality. The New Forest Pony has free, even gaits, active and straight, but not exaggerated.

New Forest Ponies are most commonly bay, chestnut or grey, but may be any colour except piebald, skewbald or cremello. Palominos and very light chestnuts are only acceptable as geldings and mares. Blue eyes are not permitted. White markings on the head and legs are permitted. However, white markings are not permitted that occur behind the head and above a line parallel to the ground from the point of the hock in the hind leg to the top of the metacarpal bone or bend in the knee in the foreleg.

The New Forest Pony is considered to have a gentle temperament, and the ponies are noted for their intelligence, strength and versatility. They are noted for friendliness, intelligence, strength, versatility and are nearly always willing-to-please. They are also renowned for their sure-footedness, agility and speed. New Foresters are amongst the most approachable of all the native British pony breeds, perhaps because of their history of frequent contact with humans.

Uses:

New Forest ponies make excellent ponies for gymkhanas. They are also used for show jumping, cross-country, dressage, driving, and eventing. They and their cross-breeds are still the 'working pony of choice' for local farmers and commoners, as their sure-footedness, agility and sound good sense will carry them (and their rider) safely across the varied and occasionally hazardous terrain of the open Forest, sometimes at great speed, during the drift season.
