    For Sale


    I purchased Roscoe recently with the intention to compete in low level jumping and hopes to go hunting. Unfortunately he is not the pony for me.

    Before we bought him he was advertised as an allrounder type. He is good to ride, however can be lazy and stubborn. To lunge he is very strong and will pull you so i’ve not done much lunging with him, mainly free lunging.

    He is too much of a challenge at the moment and it’s proving difficult, as I was told when I viewed him that he was ready to just get on and go. This isn’t the case, he needs a lot of ground work, as he has 0 manners. So far i’ve managed to get him to wait for his haynet without him barging me for it. He isn’t for a novice. He is extremely strong on the ground if you let him. He needs a good telling off otherwise he will carry on dragging you around and trampling you.

    So far he’s managed to escape his stable a few times. If he doesn’t want to do something then he won’t do it, no matter what you try. He has a habit of barging into people and it has caught me off guard quite a number of times, But this isn’t what we was expecting in the slightest and he needs to go to an experienced home.

    With all that being said, he would make a great working hunter pony or show pony with the work put in. He has shown in the past so he knows his job when it comes to it.


    He does suffer from laminitis, but hasn’t had it for a few years, it can be easily managed. He isn’t on any feed as he doesn’t need it. He is head shy as he does have aural plaques in his ear. It can’t be treated, and it can be painful for him if touched so it can take a while to put a bridle on but i’m sure with time he will be fine.

    He’s up to date with vacs, teeth, farrier etc

    We didn’t expect this at all so no time wasters please. He comes with rugs, tack etc.
