Sandbank Gamebird 12.2hh with LHC, beautiful chestnut British Riding Pony 13yo, 'Pip' has been my daughter's very best friend for the last 3 1/2 years. He's a very gentle soul who, at some time of his life has obviously had a hard time from an adult so can be shy until he gets to know you (if you're a child, then he loves you immediately). He's been a wonderful ride for Charlie and is beautifully schooled and continues under tuition of professional instructors on a weekly basis. Pip was previously produced and shown at county level and at RI. He is from excellent showing lines and is always in the ribbons. Pip has had a varied life with us, doing a little bit of everything. He produces a really lovely dressage test and would likely enjoy jumping. He hasn't done much of this though as my daughter isn't the boldest rider, and prefers 4 feet on the floor. He makes the ideal first ridden prospect and looks after his jockey. That said, he is always very willing and would thrive with a jump loving jockey. He has been to the beach, moors, across farmland and is regularly hacked and has proven reliable in looking after our girls. He lives on a busy livery yard and us well versed in life with farm machinery, tractors, livestock, bikes, scooters and my youngest (non-riding) daughter's constant games of football under his feet. Pip is up-to-date with his teeth, farrier, vaccinations and has regularly seen by the osteopath and cranial osteopath to keep him tip-top. He is brilliant for the farrier (barefoot) and vet. He's perfect to groom, clip and loads without hesitation. He is a very dear boy who is very sadly outgrown but far too special to be an ornamental lawnmower. Please no photo collectors or joyriders. only the very best of homes (with references) will be considered. Experienced homes only. SERIOUS ENQUIRIES ONLY, PLEASE NO MORE TIMEWASTERS. Full wardrobe and excellent quality tack included. DEVON
