    Junior, Pielbald Gypsy Cob 13'2 . We’ve owned Junior for the last 3 years, during which time he has been ridden by my (now 12) daughter. He is a real sweetie, most people fall in love with him when they meet him, and he does not have a mean bone in his body. He was bought as a ride and drive pony, but was very green in the school when we bought him, but during his time with us he has spent periods away with professional trainers to bring his schooling on. He has a great jump on him, but I think Junior would really prefer the life of a happy hacker! He’ll happily hack out alone or with others, front or back; just goes the the flow for an easy life! I have never had the opportunity to drive him, but a friend recently put him in harness and long reined him and he went beautifully.

    He is heavy, with masses of mane, tail and feather, and is a good weight carrier (I hack him out too; I’m 5’9”) He would do well in the coloured show ring.
    He is 100% in traffic, and is not fazed at all by farm machinery, motorbikes etc., which are regularly driven around our field. He is great for dentist, farrier etc., and no problem at all to load (we have a trailer)
    He can be turned out alone or with absolutely anyone, and he never causes a problem, just gets on with his grazing, keeping himself to himself! He’s got the kindest eyes you could ask for, and has a lovely energy to be around. He is turned out 24/7 365 days a year, and never ails with anything! He has had periods of weeks, even months, off without being ridden whilst we have had him, and he’s never any different than if he’s being ridden every day.
    However, junior can be nervous of people he doesn’t know, it takes time to gain his trust. He really looks to his rider/handler for confidence, which is why I feel that he would be best suited to a small adult or confident teenager, who can give him that reassurance, but who can also let him know in a quiet confident manner that they are the boss, as he can be a typical cob! I believe a hacking or driving home would be best suited for him, although for the right person he will probably excel at anything. He is best handled in a very quiet but confident manner.
    He is only just being brought back into gentle ridden work after around 12 months off due to lack of rider when my daughter got another pony more suited to pony club activities
    . He has, on a few occasions ‘spooked’ after landing a jump, I dont think jumping is the love of his life.
    I am really reluctant to part with Junior, he really is part of our family, but he’s really going to waste at the moment, which is just sad as he needs a job and has a lot to give. Good loving home which will suit Junior is absolutely essential.
    Based in Carlisle. £1500 to include bridle and rugs. Can deliver at cost. NO timewasters please, serious enquiries only. No loans/trials, but we have an arena and you can come and have a look as many times as you want!
