Training Second Level dressage.
Shoulder-In, Haunches-In, Walk Piroutte.
Started Half-Pass, Started Half-Steps.
Athletic and sweet, this pony will make a great partner. She's curious about new things, honest, and tries her hardest.
Great ground manners.
Ties, loads, hauls, great for farrier/vet/dentist, bathes well, cross ties, hard ties, ground ties.
Gelding type personality. Easy going. People pleaser.
Barefoot her whole life.
Great with other horses.
Trail rides in a group like a dream, nervous when out on her own.
Easy to catch, easy to handle, just a really nice pony overall.
First show in 2017.
Handled it like an old pro.
Has been around chainsaws, lawnmowers (i ride while my hubby mows around me), rattling carts flying right past her, low flying helicopters, buckets crashing around her, cats jumping from rafters.
Can hop right on bareback and go. If given more than a few weeks off, she needs a quick lunge first.
Taken to her first show in 2017. Started out nervous, but within 10 minutes I was riding her around on a loose rein and she handled it like an old pro. Didn't care about the packed warm-up arena, the loudspeakers, the kids and dogs running around. Totally unphazed by it all.
Ridden in outdoor arena majority of her life, but didn't care when ridden in an indoor.
Barefoot her entire life.
Requires a calm handler/rider. She looks to the rider/handler for confidence in new situations. Great brain on her, but she wasn't exposed to much as a youngster so she's still learning that things aren't a big deal.
