Hunt Pony for Sale:
“Slightly” is a 9 year old large pony gelding. He is 14 h and a flashy grullo with a white stripe and nose. He has been used as a staff mount by a small adult rider (so far about 20 hunts) with Shawnee Hounds (IL). He jumps ditches, logs, and other small hunt fences and has started schooling some of the larger coops as well. He is honest, uncomplicated, and very surefooted through water, mud or other difficult footing.... (read more) He hacks down the road alone or in company and is not spooky about traffic. In addition to hunting, Slightly has also been doing weekly lessons (flat and jumping) since October with an eventing trainer with an adult amateur riding.
Slightly is an easy keeper and has been hunting, trail riding and hacking down the road barefoot with no issues. He currently lives outside 24/7 and is worked 3-5 days per week. He is small enough that he wouldn’t be intimidating to a child, but big bodied and sturdy enough to comfortably carry an adult rider. His gaits are very smooth - he feels more like a horse than a pony. Due to his willing nature, he would make a great all around or Pony Club type horse for a young rider or family. He loads and trailers well and is easy to handle.
I’m happy to provide hunting references for Slightly and potential buyers are welcome to come try him in the arena, on a trail ride or hunt him in order to assess his suitability. Video and many additional photos available on request.
