14hh cob X hackney, 12 yrs
Light hacking pony who is very affectionate and a big character.
He's a safe hack but would suit a more experienced rider due to his inexperience. Perfect in traffic, to walk and to trot, will take the odd jump. Does not know canter very well but with work this will come. He will sometimes throw in a small protest buck when canter is asked for but does quickly settle.
Great in hand, would make a nice show or agility pony. He is a quick learner and enjoyed horse agility in his younger days.
He will load and travel well. Enjoys attention and will stand all day to be groomed.
He can be tricky to catch so tends to be turned out with a field safe head collar. He's had periods off being a field ornament so with persistence and routine, I would expect this to improve.
He has equine asthma when stabled,
so is best kept at grass 24/7, with soaked hay. He is unfit at present and would need to have his workload increased slowly, as he can cough at a faster pace. However, with the right facilities (living out 24/7) and the correct pace of work, he may be capable of more than light hacking.
Can be seen in his current loan home, he is available again through no fault of his own and purely due to lack of time I cannot keep him.
He would suit someone wanting to hack out a few times a week, for in hand shows and agility, or generally to have a fun and affectionate friend.
I'm open to discussing all options for this very special pony, my main aim is to find him a loving home.
