Primrose is a 12.2hh, 18 year old British Riding Pony. She has become a much loved member of her family.
In her time rhe her current owners she has done it all with their 7 year old daughter. They have attended PC rallies and camp, dressage, showjumping, cross country, Tetrathlon, mini mounted games, fancy dress and hacked. Primrose has proved herself capable across the disciplines and thoroughly enjoys her work. She has beautiful paces and a nice jump. Prior to coming to her current owner she had mainly competed SJ, but has proved she can turn her hoof to anything. She has done well at local unaffiliated SJ competitions where she has been jumping 40-50cm with us. In her previous home, she was regularly jumping 60-70cm. We have found that she also really enjoys her schooling and has done well in the low level dressage tests. She likes to lead the ride during rallies. She is snaffle mouthed and goes off the leg nicely and has excellent brakes.
Primrose is barefoot. She has both lived out 24/7 and been in during the day/night. She is happy with both but we feel she prefers being out 24/7. She isn’t a pony who has needs extra - careful watching with her grass intake and as far as we are aware, has never had laminitis. She is good for the farrier and dentist. She needs sedating to be clipped. Excellent to load. Up to date with Vaccs and teeth.
Primrose is nice to other ponies and doesn’t kick or rear. She is happy to stand on the box all day and doesn’t make a fuss. She is very well behaved at shows and events once she has had a chance to absorb the atmosphere - often falls asleep ringside waiting her turn! This summer we competed at Hickstead for my daughter’s school and she behaved perfectly.
Primrose is not a complete novice/tiny tots ride and we feel she would be best suited for an older child or a more confident younger child. She requires a rider rather than a passenger to get the best out of her. That said, she has happily done lead rein rallies with my 4 year old son but this isn’t what she should be doing as her full-time job as she is capable. She is fairly alert (not spooky and doesn’t actually do anything) and this doesn’t work well with a nervous child. She has very occasionally thrown in a small excited buck but this has only been when she hasn’t been in regular work and has been, for example, about to canter in a big open space.
She is a lovely pony who deserves a home where she will live a busy and varied life. Only for sale due to my daughter now concentrating on dressage (which Primrose gave her a taste for!).
