Minnie is a real darling. She is very sweet, calm, trusting and kind - the perfect large pony/small horse for a youngster. Minnie is sound and healthy at a 'young' 17-years-old. Both Arabians and Welsh Ponies (Minnie's lineage) are noted for being long-lived, and Minnie might well live into her late 20's or older with good care. Minnie has been ridden bareback and western by her current young owner, but also is trained for English and used to do some jumping with her previous owners.... (read more) Minnie knows her leads; stops easily upon request; has good transitions; knows how to side pass and backs well too. When competing in little local shows last year, she was always 'in the ribbons' with her novice rider. Besides being fun and quiet in an arena, Minnie is great on the trails. She is NOT SPOOKY - willingly goes every and anywhere; she might need a bit of encouragement to go through a stream, but doesn't put up a fuss - she just needs encouraging. Minnie is easy to catch in a field; does not get barn nor herd sour; and can be ridden calmly in an arena with other horses running around or alone on the trails. She has good ground manners too; this super-nice little mare can be your child's new BEST FRIEND for trail riding, 4H, shows or whatever. Minnie's young owner has lost interest so Minnie needs another child to bond with who will hug and kiss and groom and ride her. This is a very hard to find little horse who doesn't have a mean bone in her body. If you are looking for a great first horse/pony for a youngster or a second 'get your confidence back' mount for a petite adult or child who still LOVES horses but is intimidated by the big, bold ones... you need to meet little Minnie. She is not a DUD or a dead-head, but is always respectful and tries to please 100%. Minnie comes with her halter, winter blanket and saddle pad; is current on all her shots/worming/hoof care and lives in Bend, Oregon.
Assure YOUR horse goes to a truly APPROPRIATE new long-term home.
