UPDATE: we are willing for Spirit to go on a 3-6 month lease or trial. At the end of the trial you can make an offer, or we can take her back. We would really love for Spirit to go do something and for some child to have a blast with her.
Spirit is a cute and snazy little pony that has show experience. She was competitive at the 2'6" hunter/jumper shows until she was outgrown by her rider. Safe, quiet and honest (but not exactly bombproof). She has had a year off until it was decided she needs to go to another home where she can be enjoyed! Has been in light work all summer and fall of 2011, then the witner off. Light work last summer 2012, always willing and glad to do something.
Worth the drive to meet her! Professionally appraised at $8,000.
Get this pony while the price is still low and she is coming back into work! Surely her price will increase as she gets back into the groove.
Price is negotiable to good home.
Up to date on vaccinations.
UPDATE: This little pony is going undersaddle very nicely. Trail rides easily, good arena work, correct leads, jumping again. She is ready for someone to finish out and show this spring!!
