Patrick is a friendly, sweet mini cob. We originally took him on to drive but don't have the time as my daughter has started showjumping and he is not getting the attention he deserves. He has been long reined in harness and lunged and worn tack. He loves pampering and is good for vet, dentist and farrier. He has good feet and is barefoot. At only 12 hands with a short back he could possibly be a lead rein pony- he would be great at the Show Hunter Pony lead rein classes Make a lovely driving mini cob

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    ideally someone who wants to drive as I feel he would be best as a driving pony. His back is short so would only be suitable for the tiniest of saddles so possible lead rein but feel he would enjoy the driving. He has great paces for driving. He loves attention and is easy to bath and pamper.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    The pony is not ridden, so the questions above and this one are not really relevant. patrick does not have his own tack, he borrows our other pony tack which is a snaffle bit. He has only done light long reining in full harness and lunged on a head collar.
