We are unfortunately and sadly having to rehome Casper due to the pandemic. We have owned Casper since May 2020 we bought him for two reasons:
1 - for myself and my 57yr old (13st) mum to hack out on together (all of our others are small ponies) with our other horse and daughter on her pony.
2 - To use in our pony parties as a "bigger" lead rein pony dressed as a Unicorn!
Because of the business being closed for the best part of the last year, we are having to be realistic and make cut backs, this means rehoming this absolute gem.
We adore this pony, he has so much love to give everyone, will stand for hours to be groomed and fussed over by any one of any age and can be handled by children in the field and around the yard.
He is a great weight carrier with great stamina, he will go on and on when out hacking. He can be forward and feeds off the rider so wouldn’t be suitable for a nervous or novice rider. However is a absolute gent on the lead rein, doesn't put a foot wrong...
He can sometimes also be a kick along, he's not always forward i'm just trying to be over cautious about him so you know him at his worst!
He has seen allsorts and isn’t phased by cars, bikes, dogs, tractors, building sites, noisy scary things, bins, puddles, flappy things in trees, piles of rubbish that have been dumped etc...
Hes not the sort that needs riding all the time, we sometimes go for a week or so without riding and get on and go again.
His only "fault" is that sometimes he can get a bit "joggy" when he does this he doesn't try and bolt or spin or do anything stupid. He just gets a bit anxious, and if your calm, talk to him and reassure him he will go back to a walk and carry on (hence not suitable for a nervous rider) if your on him when he does this and you tense up he will also tense up, he needs someone with condfidence that is calm and willing to reassure him.
Would suit person wanting something to have fun on.
I've never used him for pony club, he's previous home also didn't, so i can't say if he would be any good or not. He isn't a show pony, he's not been schooled particularly well but he will pop over a jump if you ask him too, and go around the school without kicking up a fuss. He's willing to please but if it doesn't interest him you will have to kick!
He loads and travels perfectly, good with farrier, upto date with teeth/vacs, good to clip, saddle fitted by saddler, never been sick or sorry.
Lives out 24/7 during spring/summer (we are on clay, so really rich grass) never shown any problem or needed restricted grazing. Lives in during the winter because we like to give our muddy/clay fields a break, but would easily live out all year round.
He was at one point in his life, mistreated and because of this doesn't have much feeling in his mouth, which makes him feel as if he's being strong, he's not, he just doesn't feel you pulling! you need to use your seat more than arms. He can also be a bit head shy with new people, again nothing nasty you just need time to bond with him, understand him and let him trust you.
We will absolutely only let him go to the best home that only has intentions of keeping him for the rest of his life, more than happy for him to be vetted and I would want to vet any potential new home.
We have just been let down on a sale because of living arrangements for him (no fault of his own) which is why i'm readvertising him.
Please CALL me for more information or WhatsApp for more videos/photos, i can't always respond to emails.
Please don't respond asking if he is suitable for a child coming off the lead rein.... HES NOT for the reasons stated above.
