For Sale: Sadly outgrown 13.2 Welsh Sec C, 10yr old (7th May) Chestnut Gelding. Gorgeous temperament, stunning looks and fabulous personality. Registered on green passport.
Owen was bought as a first pony for my daughter and they have worked well together in these last three years, building her confidence back after some falls with a previous loan. He is happy to take it slow and plod along, but can equally step it up for the right rider.
He is not a push button pony and for this reason I would say he is best suited to a confident teenager or petite adult.
He LOVES hacking out. He will hack out alone or in company, lead in front of follow behind. Great on roads, in the woods and in open spaces. Can get nervous with large tractors or buses approaching him, but with some encouragement and a side step onto the pavement will move forward. He is GREAT with children and dogs and will stand to be groomed and plaited for ages. Loves munching on a Haynet.
Great to catch, will neigh and trot up to you when he hears you coming, or will be waiting for you if you’re late. Will lick your hand like a puppy, and follow you around the field or school.
He is willing to learn in the school. Needs lots of rein and transition changes to keep his mind occupied or will get distracted by what’s going on around him. Not naughty, just easily distracted. That said, if taking him to a show, he is as good as gold, not silly or spooky, he takes it all in his stride. Went to junior PC camp last year with my daughter and they both loved it. They were booked up for this year too but CV19 has lead to this being cancelled.
Challenge for Owen is jumping. With a strong, confident and consistent rider, he will go over jumps and learns quickly, but stumble in that consistency and he looses his confidence. My daughter has done well with him so far, but she wants to go on to have fun jumping and doesn’t herself have the experience or consistency to push him forward and our circumstances have meant we’ve been stop start in this respect. She is also getting too big for him so starting the sales process now whilst she can still ride and keep him in excercise. However, he does clear the fences when he goes over with his ears pricked forward and so with the right training will go far.
Doesn’t need exercising regularly, can be left and the same chilled out playful pony is ready for when you are. Loves to be loved ...Read full description
