Sprite measures a little over 14.1hh, if you are looking for a 148 pony he is the perfect height at 4 years old, still growing he will make a full up 14.2hh!
On the ground -
Sprite is the easiest pony I have ever owned!
A complete gentleman…… he walks around a busy industrial estate with loud bangs and big lorries zooming past, he does not even turn to look let alone spook or flinch!
He is easy to bath, brush and good for the farrier to trim.
Sprite will happily live out in the field or live in the stable, in the summer he was out at night on his own and didn’t care! I have 2 pairs (mares) that lived out at night through summer so he was the odd one out on his own but I’m sure he would love a friend to go out with also as he is not the nasty bolshy type to be a problem.
He has been schooled professionally yet we do not have to do much as he is very smart and has all the moves and class!
Sprite naturally rides in an outline walk trot and canter, we have not taught him this or forced it…… it’s his natural way of going.
He is showing a good shape over jumps, we are taking it slow….but all I can say is omg I wish all ponies and horses were so easy and willing to jump! He has NEVER said no and I mean from his very first jump!!
Sprite doesn’t know what stop means, no matter what…..long stride or deep he will jump.
The same as on the ground he is happy to work in a loud busy environment.
He is 4 years old so of course he is a little green but he has it all there, he has never bucked bronked reared or bolted…. He really is a gentleman who wants to work and learn.
He has been ridden by adults and 10-12 year old kids.
Sound, very clean limbs and good feet.
I love you melody
