I'm looking for someone to part loan my 12.2hh pony as I don't have the time to give her enough attention. I have owned her for 15 years and she is a very special pony, despite some quirks.
She absolutely loves children and is completely safe to handle, groom, pick out feet, take to the field etc. She loves attention of all forms, including dressing up, going for walks and being groomed and plaited. She likes to be fussed and groomed before she is ridden and is visibly happier this way.
She is a lead rein pony (second pony if you are prepared for her thelwel type personality). She is very comfy and steady in walk and trot and great for little kids learning to ride. She is bombproof on the roads and we have a nice lane with no cars providing a safe 20 minute hack for tiny children. We also have an indoor and outdoor arena. She is, however, an old lady and would not be suitable for someone wanting to do a HUGE amount of ridden work. Weight limit of around 7 stone.
I am flexible with days but would like someone who can do ideally at least 2 days a week as she really does need some attention. I am up at the yard for the other horses every day so if for some reason you can't do a day last minute, it's not a problem.
Also, if you would rather not do jobs, I can also do this for you. I am also happy if you don't want to ride every time you come to visit her, or even at all if you don't want to.
As mentioned, the main priority is to find someone who is willing to spend time grooming her and giving her lots of cuddles.
Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Adults and teenagers also welcome to part loan her, does not have to be a child! I can also help with teaching how to care for a pony if this is your first time.
She is stabled in Todmorden, about a 15-20 minute walk from the centre, or a 10 minute drive. Please feel free to ask questions, and if she sounds like she will be right for you and you for her, we can arrange for you to come and meet her.
