13hh fun allrounder

Unfortunately the time has come for our beautiful 13hh pony Mattie to find a new home. Mattie is 19 years young and has competed successfully at all disciplines including pony racing ( although hasn’t raced in last 2 years). Mattie is the sweetest pony to handle and has manners to burn - my 11 year old son can load him, unload him, catch him and do absolutely everything with him. Mattie is NOT a novice ride as he is very forward going and wants to do his job- he would suit a brave child who loves to jump and doesn’t like to kick!! He is snaffle mouthed in all disciplines and will stop when asked. We have done all activities with him and he has taken my son from competing at 40cm to 70cm sj and ODE. He is brave XC and he is 110% bombproof in traffic. Here’s the negatives. He wouldn’t hack alone as sometimes rocks and black bins require a lead! He will just freeze to the spot as opposed to spinning or bolting if he is unsure. He needs to be sedated to clip - although I have never had reason to clip him. He would not hunt - that would fry his brain!! He won’t live out - he comes in at night 365 days of the year because he is a precious boy. I have been as honest as I can with this advert and I am determined he will only go to a experienced home who will understand him and give him the love that he will then unconditionally give back as this is heartbreaking for us as a family to have to sell him. I have 1000’s of pics and videos of our beautiful boy so if anyone would like any more information then please drop me a message so we can have a chat. Home is much more important than price, strictly no dealers and any new home will be vetted…
