Bunny is a stunning 14h 5 year old unregistered Connemara x cob dapple grey gelding. He is a very adorable boy who everyone loves to cuddle and spend time with. He always catches the eye where ever he goes with his gorgeous cute looks and very kind eye. He has excellent conformation, clean limbs and very straight movement, he is also blemish free. Although he is only 14h he is very substantial with a good amount of bone so he can comfortably carry small adults as well as children and teens. He will make the perfect mother/daughter share and family pony with a little further education as he has the most amazing quiet temperament and loves everyone; he is like a big dog who loves a fuss. Everyone that meets him falls in love with him.
Bunny is a lovely calm quiet hack who is on the steady side of medium to ride. He hacks out alone and in company and is absolutely bombproof with all traffic including machinery. He is very much an old head on young shoulders when it comes to hacking. He is very chilled out and relaxed in open spaces and with happily canter in any order within a group without getting strong or excitable. He is so much fun to ride in the stubble fields and makes his rider feel very safe. He is very polite and mannerly and waits to be told to go up a gear. He is definitely more leg on than go but does respond to the leg and voice aids. He has a lovely comfy collected canter and is lovely to sit to and always puts a smile on his riders face. He is currently hacked out by an adult and a 12 year old girl and is a real joy. He has been on a couple of pleasure rides which he just took in his stride. He has done more hacking in company where he is usually following the bigger horses as they have a bigger stride than him but equally he is happy to hack out alone too.
Bunny is hasn’t done much schooling at all as his previous owner solely used him for hacking. He has started a little schooling work over the past few weeks since being with me. He has 3 lovely correct paces with a nice amount of quality to him. Again he is on the steady side of medium to school so does need a little leg on he has a lovely light soft mouth and has already started to come into a soft outline. He has nice transitions and has just started doing a little bit of canter work in the field. Although he is very honest and genuine he is still young and green in the school so would benefit from being brought on further before he is ready to be ridden by a younger child. He will most definitely make a lovely pony club pony with a bit more work. But for now he does need an experienced teen or small adult to further his education. He is ready to begin some pole work any time now.
Bunny really does have the most amazing temperament. He is the calming influence on some of the other older horses as he is always very chilled and takes everything in his stride. He stands for hours to be groomed and pampered. He has manners to burn and is a lovely polite boy to handle and very gentle with children. He is excellent to bath and hose, just stands there relaxed and puts some of the older horses to shame. He is also brilliant with the farrier, excellent to catch and lead. He is groomed by a 5 year old girl who loves bunny and bunny loves her. His temperament is perfect. He lives in or out and mixes well with other horses (he is bottom of the pecking order). Sadly he is offered for sale on sales livery with me due to his owner not having enough time for him with a baby and starting a new job. He will make someone very happy. He must go to a 5* experienced home as he is still young and green in areas so no novices please. He would very much suit a small adult for hacking and pleasure rides or with a little more bringing on he would make a super pony club alrounder.
