For sale 9 y.o. 13.2h Reg Welsh sec c gelding. Previously used as a showing pony, home bred by his previous owner, bought by us 3 years ago. Slowly and sympathetically broken and schooled by myself, bearing in mind his various welshie quirks and anxieties. Unfortunately I no longer have the time he requires.
He is the laziest pony in town. He could just happily hack out all year round, every day. He’s good in traffic, but will look at things ocassionally. He hacked alone and in company and we have some really busy roads around and the busway!
Schooling is not his favourite and he will quickly get bored and sour, so we school little but often.
Jumping is his forte with a nice scopey jump, he will happily pop a course of 80-90cm. We haven’t been out to get experience in sj rings, but he could make a cracking little show jumper.
•He can be ridden every day or once p/w and will be ok. Currently ridden 2-3 times p/w.
•Good to catch and with his farrier
•He lives off thin air (his grass needs to be restricted, he doesn’t have a stop button!)
•Can live out 24/7
•Never sick or sorry
•No scars, no blemishes
•Great feet, never had shoes, never needed them (We use Cavallo boots for hacking.)
•He travels well
•Super safe; will not buck, rear, bolt. No vices.
•Would suit a lightweight teenager/adult or mother/daughter share
•Priced ridiculously low due to the time of the year
•Not a remote control pony. We had novices on him and he was a dream or we had experienced riders who couldn’t get him to walk, because they were too pushy. He needs a kind, understanding hand (and leg!)
•Will need more experience in show ring, if that’s what you want to do. We’ve only been out a couple of times in the last 3 years.
•He is not a cuddly type. He will tolerate you, occasionally he can let you be his scratch post. But he couldn’t care less about you. Unless you bring his food :)
•He needs to be sedated for teeth, as he gets very tense and his heart rate rocket high, bless him.
•He was vaccinated with 1-2 day delay so this will need to be repeated if you’d like to do affiliated shows.
Tack can be included for an extra fee. He’s got a lovely saddler-fitted Saddle Company saddle and a few more bits and bobs.
