Pluto is a super cute 11 yr old Paint Pony gelding. He is 14hh with a stout build. Pluto is a very versatile pony that will go english or western. He has a very sweet personality and loves people. Likes to be brushed, bathed, and fussed over. He is very quiet in the ring and on the trail. He is extremely confident and is willing try anything. He has a very light mouth and is light to leg aids. He likes to move out and has a very comfortable canter. He has a good stop. He will walk/trot/canter and back. Seems to really enjoy jumping cross rails. Great for doing lessons. Although he is a pony he has more of a "horse" stride which is great for someone looking for a small horse without having the choppy pony stride. Pluto would be a great gymkhana mount for a confident young child. Good at barrels and will lead change through poles. Pluto loves going out on the trail. Again, he is extremely confident out there and will go out alone or with others. Not spooky at all. Very good ground manners and quiet to work around. Good out with mares and geldings. Would make a confident child or small adult an excellent show or trail mount. $2,400
Update: Pluto has been used in our summer camp program for over 5 weeks now. He has been doing excellent with the children. He is very tolerant of all the bouncing and mistakes that first time riders are making. He is extremely carefully when he has kids on his back and will not break out of a trot until he feels like they are really ready. When he feels his rider off balance he comes right back down. An ideal lesson horse!
Pluto has also been doing some jumping this summer. He is extremely willing to jump anything you point him at even if he doesn't always do it perfect he will try his hardest. We have been schooling him at 2'3-2'6. He certainly has the willingness and confidence to go higher with more practice.
