    Dressage pony/ companion/ project
    Devastated to be advertising Billy, my 11 year old, 14.2hh Welsh X. I have owned Billy for over 4 years, over this time he has attended most Pony Club activities, but I have mostly done dressage with him. In the past twelve months he has competed up to Elementary unaffiliated, placing second, but more recently placed 4th at the Pony Club Area 9 Novice areas. He has also represented our Pony Club at the Badminton Dressage championships, and does not become fizzy and excitable when competing on grass. He has lovely paces, lateral work, extending and collecting come naturally to him, and he is very balanced so has no issue with counter canter or working on 10m circles. I honestly feel that in the right home he would make a fantastic dressage pony for juniors or a small adult, the basics are all there and he learns very quickly. Billy also has a fantastic scopey jump, at home he has cleared fences up to 1m40 with ease but after having some issues stopping last year we have recently started competing in low level jumping classes, placing every time with no refusals. He can do it very easily, he just needs a confident rider. Never strong but will take you into a jump, snaffle mouthed always. However, in all honesty Billy does have a lot of ‘quirks’ that I have struggled to resolve. He had kissing spine that was operated on in February 2015, and although he came back 110% fine from this, he still uses the behaviours he developed when he was in pain when he doesn’t want to do something. Because of this, Billy cannot be hacked alone or at the front of the ride, although he’s fine in company with horses more sensible than himself. He is also like this cross country, and will not leave the start box alone, and he is not safe for hunting. He can be difficult and bolshy on the ground, but with firm handling he is fine, he’s very much a people person just lacks understanding of personal space. I feed him a calmer to take the edge off of him, but obviously this does not solve everything. Anyone interested is welcome to videos of his behaviour, talking to myself or my instructor (who has also handled him for multiple years), and to try him out/trial him. I have nothing to hide with this horse, I adore him but my current circumstances mean I cannot keep him. He would be ideal for someone looking for a horse to do dressage on that isn’t interested in hacking him alone (he will literally school day in day out, he loves it), as a project for someone very confident, or as a companion for geldings. He lives out all year round with no problem, unshod, and is easy to keep. This horse will go far in the right home. If interested please contact 07968716491 or message me on here, however I’m still in education as well as riding and working so I may not always get straight back to you.
