Soon to be 11 year old dark bay connemara/ quarter horse mix pony. We have used her for Jumpers/ XC the last 9 months that we have owned her. She is 14.2 and needs at least an intermediate rider...She jumps 2-6 to 2-9 comfortably. My daughter is just way to tall for her now and wants to do EQ, hunters and Jumpers so we are looking for a 16 hand plus horse.
We took over this pony from a local riding school as she did NOT fit into their hunter lesson plan. She is by no means a teaching horse. She needs a rider who understands ponies and mares. She likes to toss her head once she lands on the other side of the jumps and she will randomly kick out when asking for the lead change these are the reasons we say she needs at least an intermediate rider. (she can be a tough ride)
My daughter had ridden the horse for about 1yr before we acquired her and so we took her as is no vet check. She tends to have a stiff hind end till she gets warmed up (this was noted by our vet and trainer). She is an easy keeper and eats just alfalfa. She is currently at a schooling barn in Westlake. She is being sold as is, as I don't have any xrays etc on her and never felt the need being she was always sound in the lesson program. (priced low to sell fast). She needs a strong confident rider. Please do not contact me unless you meet these requirements. I have a toddler and my time is limited.
