Buddy is a very heavy 14.2 hand child safe gelding that has been shown extensively in children's walk/trot and children's and pee-wee games. He has always finished well in all of them despite his size. He is built like a tank. He neck reins, direct reins, and has a nice stop on him. We ride him in a mechanical hackamore. He has been used as a lesson pony as well and is great with kids. He clips, bathes, loads, stands, and is up to date on everything. He is great with small kids as he will mimic any adult in the ring and come to you when you whistle for him at the finish line, he used to do pee wee lead line barrels without a line, but as the child grows and gains confidence he will listen well to them and baby sit them while you let them have more freedom riding. Buddy is a BLAST on trail rides but he likes to pick up a little speed and so smaller children may be intimidated by that but he never ever does anything wrong. He actually out walks my friends with Walkers when we ride together on a trail. He will go anywhere and do anything. He is high in the pecking order and I would say he and one of my mares are tied for #1. We don't really want to sell Buddy but my smallest child is ready to graduate to a faster pony and we simply cannot keep them all. Plus Buddy is so good at what he does with kids that it is unfair to keep him as a pasture ornament when he could be helping yet another child learn to ride. More pictures available and I can take video on request if desired.
Possible if local, ask about it.

We love Children, Horses, chickens, and OK sometimes during 4-H season cows and sheep. We don't always love them in that particular order though. Our horses are rarely sold but every now and then we have to let one go as the kids grow into bigger ones.
