You can always tell when a pony has truly belonged to someone and been a child's pony. Daddy’s City Slicker (aka “Red Breeze”) is my daughter’s 5-year-old Welsh pony gelding that is just that. My 9-year-old daughter has taken him on plenty of challenging trail rides in the deep woods and state parks and has always been comfortable walk, trot, cantering, and jumping natural obstacles on the trail rides. He is not spooky and does not bolt.... (read more) He is not buddy sour; he will walk or trot along with my daughter even if the rest of us canter off, out of sight. My daughter has taken him to a cross country course with 150+ jumps of all kinds, including ditches, tires, hay bales, water complex, etc., where they had a great time together. She has ridden him many miles by a busy highway to the gas station in town. She swims him through deep water. She has taken him to the rodeo and has done the barrels and poles on him. She plays pony club/4H type games on him, such as Simon Says, Red Light Green Light, and Follow the Leader. She climbs and jumps all over him, rides bareback or side saddle, carries baggage on him, etc. My point is that he likes children and does not mind their antics. He is handled and ridden solely by children and does not take advantage of them.
He was also her main hunter jumper show pony and has shown locally. He has a steady, rhythmic trot and canter and a very cute jump. He jumps 2’6” easily but stays at about 2’ regularly. He gets his leads correct most of the time. He could easily go from the trails one day to the show ring the next. He is willing, quiet, takes care of his rider, and knows what he is doing. He is able to navigate advanced courses and and does not shy at jumps. He also has a great whoa. He is still green in the show ring because he has not had many show miles, but he is easy, laid-back, and learns quickly.
He is well-bred out of Farnley and Coed lines. You can find his pedigree online at allpedigree.com for his sire Flying Diamond Gypsy Prince and dam GMA Foxetta. He is a tad above 13 hands with the cutest, little babydoll head.
He is quiet enough for a beginner rider but would also be suitable for an advanced beginner or intermediate rider as well. My 5-year old and 7-year old ride him as well. He has lead-lined my 3 year old. He has also safely walk/trotted my 18-month old sitting in front of his sister in the saddle.
For the last 2 months, he has been with a petite adult rider as her trail horse. He was the only animal there, and she took him on rides through the woods, making their own trails as they went. That was his first time being completely alone, and she was surprised that he never shied or spooked. She absolutely adored this pony. She groomed him without ever tying him up. She said he didn't have a mean bone in his body. Unfortunately, she couldn't keep him because she developed some severe health problems. I am selling him for her. For the month of September only, he is $2750 firm for a quick sale. He is worth A LOT more than that. His price will go back up to $3500.
