1. ‘Impeccable manners’

 

Height: 11.3hh

Gender: gelding

Age: 11

Selling points: “Fergus is the ideal first pony — he has impeccable manners and has given my daughter so much fun and done everything a little rider would want to on him. My daughter has loved her time at Pony Club (PC) on him, partaken in many gymkhanas, rallies, shows, showjumping, dressage, cross-country and beach rides.  While at shows and events he behaves, is very relaxed and you can take him anywhere. Fergus loves to hack out, loves to jump and is reliable and safe with a steady trot. Fergus most recently has competed in the NSEA grassroots showjumping team and gone on to become regional reserve champion. Fergus loves attention, is safe to be around and enjoys being groomed.  Fergus loads onto trailers and lorries no problem, shoes (front only), clip and dentist. Fergus was ridden by previous owners as a second pony off the lead rein too.”

4. ‘Super-fun

Height: 12.2hh

Gender: gelding

Age: nine

Selling points: “Harry has taken our daughter from a nervous wreck to a confident, capable jockey. He is ultra-reliable in every respect — he turns his hand to anything with a smile on his face. Harry loads, travels on anything, seen big crowds, flags, tannoys, machinery, open spaces and so on and never kicks out, squeals or causes a fuss. He would take any jockey around a 60cm course — he has a lovely rocking horse canter so is ideal for dressage, cross-country, one-day events and has done a lot of mounted games — he is rock solid with equipment, hand overs, vault etc. Harry hacks in any traffic, alone or in company and is safe in the stable for any size child. He has also done working hunter and drives beautifully.

5. ‘Great little pony’

Height: 13hh

Gender: gelding

Age: five

Selling points: “For the past two years my grandchildren have been riding Prince on the lead-rein but they have now lost interest hence him being for sale. Prince is good to load and with the farrier and so on. He lives in or out and loves a fuss — he will follow you around all day. Prince will be a great little pony on the lead-rein or for a more forward rider to go hacking/PC. Prince will go far in the right hands.”
