For sale - Huge Potential
All rounders - PONIES / Posted 3 weeks ago
Honest ad – Gorgeous 13.3hh (full up and feels like 14hh+) mare that I bought during lockdown but sadly hasn’t worked out. I bought her on the premise she was green to school and fine on the ground etc but in fact she’s a complete project. She needs a firm, confident person on the ground as she seeks confidence from her handler. She is nervous with new people especially when taking her rug off. Not sure if there’s been previous mishandling as she tucks herself in and backs off however if the rug is taken off or put on slowly she remains calm. She deserves a home where the owner can work with her in all areas, whereas I just wanted something straight forward that I can produce and put my own stamp on. If she’s unsure she has a tendency to kick out – this was not disclosed to me when purchasing. She did it first when trying to pick her back hooves out but I’ve managed to get her to pick them up now. She takes time to trust you which is why I believe she went to kick out and would be great in a 1-2-1 home where they can put a load of time and energy into her which I just don’t. She has major potential in a dressage home or would excel in a pony club/pony games home with a confident rider. She excelled in jumping in her previous home as pictured above/ I have videos of her doing everything with her previous owner including: taking her rug off, grooming, picking hooves out, tacking up, riding and lunging. She will come with her custom leather saddle, bridle and rugs. Had a recent strangles test due to moving yard which was negative. Passported and microchipped.
Unfortunately I just don’t think we’ve clicked and I really want her to find her “person” as she’s so willing and a fun ride.
