Horses & ponies for sale or loan

CURRENTLY ON TRIAL Spot the difference’ is a 15 year old Strawberry Roan Gelding 12.2hh pony, appaloosa x welsh. Sadly out grown by my daughter and so hes not being used. He has done some pony club but mainly did jumping with my daughter and has jumped courses of 90cm when he was worked regularly and fit. He has not done very much over winter and we have just started bringing him back into work for the summer. He is great in the school but very forward when out hacking in a group but fine on his own so would suit someone who mainly wanted to do pc or jumping. He is good to catch, handle and clip and was great to load when we were travelling him around, good with farrier and dentist and in traffic, he has been on a busy yard so used to farm vehicles and quad bikes, dogs etc. He is out with mares and geldings but happy on his own or in a stable.. He will suit a competitive confident child/teenager. He has never reared or bucked, he is just forward out hacking so not suitable for a small child coming off leadrein. He will need more work to regain his fitness and reach his full potential again but once fit he is a cracking jumping pony. We will continue to work him every week until he is sold. £1500.00.
