Goldengrove Hercules - A true best friend

Tonto has been an adored pony for the past 3 years and has done a bit of everything. Tonto is a very willing, versatile, all- rounder pony. He schools nicely with an established rider and has 3 good paces. Tonto has a lovely scopey jump and has taught his current jockey to jump from poles on the ground to 75cm. However he can become whizzy and duck out at times. Hacking, Tonto comes into his own. He will go first or last, leave a group or head out on his own. He is relaxed in open spaces, can go out for a canter and then straight back onto the buckle. He is not fazed by traffic and had been used as a nanny horse for baby or nervous horses. He is trusted enough to let his current rider ride out unaccompanied and bring her back safe and with a big smile or allow the younger sibling to hop on. He genuinely is easy to do in all ways. He does not buck, bolt, rear, kick, etc. He has always been looked after by a child who is able to do anything and everything with him. He prefers to live out all year round and has never been sick or sorry. Vet happy to provide reference.  Tonto comes with an extensive wardrobe, including a newly re-flocked and fitted Stubben saddle.  Tonto would suit any home that is looking for a best friend to hack and have some fun with doing a bit of everything. He is very much loved and will only go to the very best of knowledgeable long-term homes (preferably with younger siblings waiting in the wings).
