George is a blank canvas, who has mainly hacked throughout his ridden career.
I purchased him recently with a 5* vetting which he passed.
Since then I’ve mainly been hacking, light schooling with a few little outings to the common/beach. He hacks alone or in company, very good with all traffic. He’s forward to hack, to start he may be a little wary if alone however in a few minutes he soon settles and can be ridden on the buckle.
He’s green in the school, but showing lots of potential and very willing. Never spooky, he knows this is where he works and generally has a lovely attitude towards it! I haven’t done much work with his canter as been concentrating on his walk/trot and building muscle. So this is still he’s weaker area, he’s never bucked/bolted/reared...(Fine to canter out hacking)
He has popped a few jumps previously, which I saw whilst viewing him.
He’s easy to catch and strolls over when he sees you in his field. Good with other horses.
*He’s not yet a child’s pony, I do not believe he’s seen or done enough to trust him with a child.
*When he spooks, he can stop and spin, with a little nudge he then proceeds past.
*Loading... he hesitates, won’t spin or run. Just stands for a few minutes then walks in. Travels like a dream.
*He was scared of the hose, I can now hose his feet with reassurance and treats.
*pulls faces if you are to rough with his girth
* occasionally won’t stand still at the mountain block- walks backwards. Always Fine from the ground.
I’m being completely honest because I was miss sold George, expecting to be low level eventing this season and he isn’t ready for this. I want to find him the perfect home so he isn’t moved around.
He’s a very sweet pony, who really does want to please!
Lives off fresh air.
Fantastic with dogs.
Your gran could lead him in/out
Children can run around his legs all day
Has also previously hunted
Endless potential for this little pony, just needs someone who has time.
