I rescued Poppy from a field 4 yrs ago, she was in a terrible mess, had obviously been abused. In the last 4 years Poppy has been nursed back to health, has been backed western style and has been schooled using natural horsemanship methods. POPPY is still a bit green but is a quick learner and very clever and a bit cheeky!! She is the most loving and affectionate pony I have ever met and would make the most wonderful pony for someone who looking for that special bond.

I would like Poppy to be with someone who is a real animal lover, not just horsey!! Someone who will love her but can be firm when needed to be.
