So, what can we say about Mr. Ben..... Ben is a beautiful dapple grey gelding, measuring 14.2hh, 6yrs old.
He is much more mature than his years, calm and quiet to have on the yard and to ride. He was bought for a child as a second pony, but he is simply not fast enough!
We adore Mr. Ben and have held onto him until now, but he is too good to just keep as a field-mate and am sure there is a super home waiting for him.
He has a lovely way of moving (see video), his head stays still, no shaking or pulling reins, never done anything naughty, good in traffic and will go out alone. He is fully shod at the moment (good feet) but has been bare foot behind before.
He would suit as a first pony/horse, he is responsive to aids but just prefers a slower pace than his intended child likes - he is easy to catch, tack up, box, shoe etc. Ben would certainly be ready to do a dressage test, he hasn't done as much over jumps but he tries his best.
Ben is currently living out, rugged up but is happy in a stable when comes in, will stand tied up with children and dogs running about. His breeding is unrecorded in his Irish passport but believed to be Connemara. Injections are up to date. ...Read full description
