SUPER CUTE RIDE N DRIVE PINTO SHOW PONY: Jiminy Cricket is your child's next show pony or your driving pony! Cute as a button and good with kids. Ponies like this don't come along very often! I have had a TON of interest in him but looking for a great show home. 8 years old, 13.1 h, registered pinto gelding he is the right size that kids can ride him for years. We ride him English & he is broke to drive too. Loves to drive on down the road. Desensitized to anything on the road as well as shows, trails & 4 kids w/ dog & all that goes along with that.... (read more) Kid's friends can ride him & he goes where he's told. Not barn sour! My girls have both shown him between the ages of 8 & 10. They both won classes in hand & walk/trot. He learns fast & is super smart! Walk/trot supreme! Always in the ribbons & won 2 high points this year. We went to State Expo to watch and he would do very well there! Just worked this summer on cantering & picks up the correct lead every time just needs to be more consistent stepping into it from a walk. Learning quickly on how to do patterns. Backs, side passes and working on more trail moves as he is very maneuverable. Would go western with a little work. My daughter showed him in driving for the first time this year & he was slow & steady & it was his first time in a ring driving too! Has been in the ring with a few horses & in lunch breaks with over 30 & nothing bothers him. Ridden indoor arenas & outdoor. No buck, rear or bolt. No bite, kick, chew, crib or paw. Always sound & kept barefoot. Stands still for braiding & all the show-prep. We have been very happy with how this little guy has acclimated to all the show stuff. He stands at the trailer without a fuss or the kids just sit on him by the ring. This pony has a TON of potential for open/4-H/ pinto breed shows, hunter jumper, pony club, driving shows or pairs driving or even games! Went in his first parade in hand with my daughter's cheer team -- he looked at everything but just walked down the street almost bored. He went to horse camp this year and was at Fair all week as a demonstration pony and he was calm and sooo good for my daughter and let little kids pet him all over. We school him in a French link snaffle, drive in a half check snaffle & show in a snaffle mouth kimberwicke. One fault that has surfaced this year is that he anticipates my daughters next move and starts to jiggy jog instead of walk so we are working on waiting for the rider and relaxing & he's really getting it fast. He does need to be lunged before you ride because this pony could trot all day long. Just starting to see his potential! Would LOVE to see him go to a show/4-H home! Every show we go to we get comments on how cute & flashy a pony he is! Rider should have a year of experience or horse-savvy parents. He prefers youth riders - no one over 150 pounds he gets a little testy. He is still young so can be a little frisky when the weather cools. When it's warm out -- no worries. He ties, loads, bathes, clips & is good for the vet & farrier. He loves to trail ride & prefers to be first but will follow as well. Crickett also has a funny & curious personality that makes us laugh. It breaks our hearts to sell him but we are relocating across the country & he has to find a new family to love. Cart & harness available -- new 4 years ago & in great condition $450 extra. Serious inquiries only - I am VERY VERY VERY BUSY with 4 kids, moving & horses - thank you!
