"PENNY" is an amazing and totally SAFE, TRUSTWORTHY and HONEST large pony mare that I use for beginner to intermediate beginner kids and young teens in my lesson and camp program. She looks very Arab with a pretty dish face, big eye and that beautiful neck. No high tail at the trot. Perky and sweet but a wise gal, she babysits her riders and has never threatened to buck or run away. All of my kids ride her using just lead ropes or reins clipped to her bridle
She was used as an adult trail horse before she came to me, she is well seasoned and has no vices.
She will lunge and rides bareback, good with her feet and tacks up quietly. BEAUTIFUL GAITS - very smooth canter and beautiful transitions, consistent head set. Never roots or pulls.
I've started to teach her about jumping Just an all around wonderful pony for a young or small rider. Great brakes and voice commands. Just a great pony you can TRUST with your kids! Could shape up to do well in the flat classes - shows, too!
She will trail ride alone and is totally road safe - no rushing back to the barn and cars do not bother her at all.
