Apache is a 15 year old grade P.O.A (Pony of America) and stands 14 hands. He is up to date on all vaccines, dental and shoeing. He is a 4-H Show Pony, Trail Pony and Lesson Pony. He has a very calm personallity. We showed him all year and Apache and his 11 year old rider won numerous classes in both English and Western and even Dressage. Apache has good ground manners and he is quite a fun guy to be around. He stands for you to do anything with him, clipping, bathing, and he wore a pair of Pajamas in the costume class and that didn't bother him a bit.
I would say he needs a rider that has rode for a year, due to his faster trot and canter, like most ponies have. He has been shown in showmanship along with riding classes, he can get all his gaits, leads and backs, along with neckreining. He is great with children, and he can carry an adult with no problem.
Trail riding he is a leader or follower and very sure footed. He has no bad habits and is perfect in the barn or pasture.
He has a bump on his right knee due to a very old injury that has calcified. He has had no problems with it or soreness at all. For photos please call, text or email me.
