He’s a good pony and very healthy, easy keeper, 17 years old, great feet and teeth. My vet says he will probably live into his 30’s so many years left to teach. He has been used as a lesson pony the last two years. Does walk, trot, canter and can jump 2ft. Great form over fences and an impressive little mover. Good pony for lead line lessons, and starting out. Has gone to a local hunter schooling show this year with a student and was fantastic! I would love to see him become someone’s special guy.
