Rescue gelding Sparkie could make a “fun ridden pony” for the right family.

Sparkie is the next in our ’12 ponies of Christmas’ series.

The 13.1hh seven-year-old came to World Horse Welfare as one of a large group of ponies whose owner could no longer provide for their needs and care.

“Sparkie is a bright, cheeky pony who is as much fun as his name would suggest,” said a World Horse Welfare spokesman.

“He is looking for a home as a project pony with an experienced and confident jockey.

“Sparkie is still green as he is too small for our riders and will need bringing on in his new home.

“He will make a lovely, fun ridden pony in the right home.”

Sparkie is currently being kept at World Horse Welfare’s Belwade Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Aberdeenshire.
