Sienna came to us after a RTA which lead to the death of another horse. Before this, she was ridden by children but following the accident, she became very worried. We completely started from scratch with her and showed her that there was nothing to fear from a rider and got her happily walking and trotting out hacking.
Sienna is very relaxed to ride now, we can just bring her in and hop on her to take her for a hack, even if she hasn't been ridden for weeks! She's also relaxed around traffic and absolutely adores her work, will stand at the gate waiting for you if she hasn't done anything for a little while. She has been ridden in a simple snaffle bridle or even occasionally in a head collar.
The only thing slowing down her progress is that we are too big for her, as are our saddles so we are having to ride her bareback and can't canter or jump her really due to hampering her movement. Though I'm not too heavy, my legs are too long and really get in the way!
With a smaller rider, we really think she could do most jobs, she's a real sweetie! Si is still young and hasn't had masses done with her which is why she is up for so little, despite being worth much more!
We have lead her over water trays and fillers and she will make a lovely jumper or show pony with her beautiful, floaty trot!
Though she can be cheeky in the field, she can always be caught with a handful of feed and is on her best behaviour as soon as she starts working! Since we've been working her she's been easy to catch.
She is easy to keep in every way, barefoot and gets fat on fresh air like most small ponies. No lami or any other health concern.
We think Sienna would be really well suited to a family home with patient people who will understand her. Home is most important and we will thoroughly vet all homes!...Read full description
