Dalehead Nelson (Freddie) 10 year old, 13.2hds
Honest advert to find Freddie’s forever home. This is a very reluctant sale, I have owned Freddie since he was a foal but, due to work commitments and recently having a baby I do not have the time he deserves.
Freddie is a stunning fell pony, lots of fun, with a sweet and willing nature. He is looking for an experienced home and would suit a confident teenager or small/lightweight adult. He is not suitable for novices.
Freddie is good in traffic, including farm machinery. He hacks alone or in company. In company he is easy going. However, unless kept in regular work, when hacking alone he can be nervous/ spooky and occasionally strong. Freddie can be fast and strong in open spaces.
Freddie schools well and works nicely in an outline. He will pop a jump and has the potential to go further with his jumping with the right rider.
He has been shown locally both in hand and ridden.
Up to date with teeth and vaccinations. Good to shoe, loads and travels well.
Freddie has suffered from laminitis in the past, when put on rich meadow land. However, this is easily managed by restricting his spring/summer grazing. As a result of laminitis he will always require front shoes.
Freddie is a really fun pony and could excel in the right home. He is wasted in his current home which is why I have made the difficult decision to sell. However, he will only go to the right home. Please no dealers or anyone looking to buy and sell on again. I would like Freddie to go to a home where he is with other horses.
