Leafy is a handsome and healthy 14 year old Welsh Sec B, 12.5h Gelding, who currently lives rugged, outside in paddocks with another Gelding. Leafy is barefoot.
We bought Leafy recently from a local riding school, for our young daughter to ride.
He is a rather nervous pony, and is sometimes head shy when you go to stroke him, though he always comes to greet you. Unfortunately this nervousness makes him a little too unpredictable for a small child to handle him safely, so he is not a 100% fit for us.
He can also be a bit unpredictable around food, as he is quite adamant that all food is his! During grazing he has bucked at us on our approach. Again, not really suitable for a little girl.
He can be really sweet, and we think he would make someone older and more confident, a great pony. He has a lovely walk and trot under saddle. HIs canter is lovely too, though we have only cantered him on the ground (due to inexperience).
He just needs more time spent with him to grow in his confidence.
He saddles and bridles without a hitch and is responsive to verbal commands on the ground and under saddle. He has gently bucked a couple of times under saddle, which probably needs some work. He picks up his feet and grooms no problem.
Leafy comes with saddle and bridle and a lightweight turnout rug.
If you think you can offer Leafy a loving, patient home where you can help bring him on, then he can be seen any weekday or at the weekend.
Happy to answer any questions.
