Super cute and sweet 4 year old Pony of America gelding for sale. Chester is a beautiful chestnut few spot gelding that stands between 13.2-13.3. He is by far the barn favorite. He is a very much in your pocket kind of pony, fearless and forgiving of beginner riders. Chester has been under saddle for a little over a year and gave me no issues throughout his training. He has been trained slowly and not ran into the ground. w/t/c no issues and started over poles and small cross rails and nailing his simple lead changes.... (read more) He is a very easy going pony and is just the right amount of go and whoa. Responsive to the riders aids and loves to go for a gallop but is also happy just walking the trails or roads all day. He has been ridden all over the mountains of VA by an advanced beginner rider and is just wonderful. He's happy leading the way, riding in the middle, or hanging in the back by himself. Absolutely no aggressive behaviors or vices. Chester is an excellent all around pony and can go in any direction. I have ridden him English, Western and bareback and he is happy either way. He direct reins currently but catches on quickly and could easily be taught to neck rein. He is currently being ridden about 4-5 times a week in a lesson program and is never sour, he really just loves people. He has been excellent for several kids to learn the basics on and build up their confidence. He has given a lot of lead line and round pen lessons to beginner riders and always acts like a gentleman. The kids have no problem catching, grooming, tacking him up and taking off through the woods, pasture, or roads. He is completely traffic safe, crosses ditches, creeks, bridges, logs, etc. with no problems. Cars, trucks, dogs, cows, tractors, etc. do not faze him. He body clips well, loves his baths, will stand tied for hours, just about falls asleep in cross-ties, and loads into the trailer and travels great. He is an absolute joy to be around and a super fun ride. Has never had any soundness issues and goes barefoot. He is great for the farrier and vet. He is currently out to pasture 24/7 with mares, geldings, and a miniature horse and has very good pasture manners. He also stalls well. I really don't have a bad thing to say about this guy. I hate to see him go but with college I just simply do not have the time for him anymore. A good home is a must. He would make an excellent first pony but has a ton of potential for an experienced rider as well. Chester just got a brand new Coggins, his vaccines updated, and was wormed. His hooves were also just trimmed. Please contact me at 540-392-5702 by text or call, or email me to schedule an appointment to come see this amazing pony or for more pictures! My service is spotty and my voicemail doesn't always work, so if you try to call and I don't answer just send me a quick text and I'll get right back to you! Vet checks welcome and trials will be considered. Thank you.
