Approx 13.2 HH Welsh Pony available to ride. Conker is 25+years but still going strong and loving life. He has been teaching children to ride since he was 4 years old. Good on the lead rein and forward going but safe off. He's fantastic at shows and is always in the ribbons even with the most inexperienced children. One of his current riders is now just getting too big for him so we are looking for a replacement. He must stay on his current yard please don't ask to move him as he is a companion for my riding horse and I will not let him go.
Opportunity to attend local shows if you want to and lots of hacking. There is also an arena available for hire in the area so lessons can also be arranged if required.
This is a great opportunity for a child that would love a pony but does not have the time or resources to own their own. I am happy to show you the ropes and you will not be left unsupervised until I am happy that you are capable, so inexperienced parents with a pony mad child please don't think you will be put in the deep end you won't. I just want commitment and dedication as he's just a great pony that needs exercising on a regular basis. Happy for you to meet/talk to past loaners so you can get a feel for what is required. One of his current riders has been coming for 3 years and is so much more confident than when she first arrived. She learnt on the lead rein but now happily canters him unaided along the local track. This is mainly riding not much yard work as I do all that, but if you want to muck in then you can.
I will want a contribution towards the cost of his shoes and require that you take out your own insurance.(British Horse Society preferred - Gold Member comes with free insurance)
Please message me in the first instance and if I think you are suitable we can discuss in more detail.
