Dobson(aka Dobby) is a turning-five-year-old fell pony gelding. He has been in professional training for 7 months in the “Bring Your Horse to College” program at the University of Findlay English equestrian center. Dobby has gone cross country schooling over natural and man-made jumps, has arena jumped up to 2’3”, and has successfully performed the USEA Novice B dressage test and USDF training 3 dressage test. Dobby has three quality gaits.... (read more) He always knows where his feet are going, making him both sure footed and talented with lateral movements.
Dobby has a very good start on him and is the kind of pony that can be finished in any direction. He loves to hack outside and is very sure footed, so he would be talented in trail competitions. He is clever over jumps both inside and outside, so he could be developed as a jumper or eventer. He has quality gaits and progresses very quickly on the flat so he could make a fantastic dressage pony. Dobby has experience in all these disciplines, so he would just needs to be finished out in one or all of them!
On top of work under saddle, Dobby has also been extensively ground driven with full driving harnesses. He has drug buckets, PVC pipes, etc. and is ready to be hitched to a cart.
Dobson trailers better than any other horse that I know. Dobby has always been barefoot and has beautiful feet. He has no stabling problems and has been turned out with mares, geldings, and minis and has done great with all of them.
Dobson can get some typical pony sass, especially on the ground, and is still young, so I would suggest him for an experienced rider. I would not recommend him as a children’s pony. Also, since he loves to work so much, Dobby would do best with someone who rides regularly.
Dobby comes with full registration papers and passport. Price is very negotiable to the right home.
