Description
Towan Polly Toodle 11yro 128cm, British Riding Pony. 2nd pony/128 jumping pony/lightweight hack/riding pony Polly is lightweight & responsive on the flat, she has a big open stride for a small pony making her a comfortable ride. She has all the qualities to make a fabulous show pony in the ring with someone to produce her on further, with a nice confirmation & 3 nice paces. Polly loves to jump and proves to be careful & brave with all fillers. She has schooled around 80cm at home with us confidently and has been out to numerous arena hires. She’s been to a handful of shows, both SJ & WH and has always behaved in the ring, she can become buzzy in the warm up but is easily managed and does not become sharp or silly. She will look after you to any fence and is always honest no matter the stride she’s put on. She has been great to hack, both off road in open spaces and through woodland and along main roads in heavy traffic. She is a nice forward hack without being strong or silly and will happily go in front or behind, not silly or spooky in any respect. Polly isn’t without her quirks and this is why she is based with me on sales livery and is sold as a 2nd pony for a competent junior or a lightweight adult to enjoy. She has previously been a lead rein & first ridden pony, which is what she was bought as, however as lovely as she is on the lead rein, she doesn’t enjoy the first ridden life and has become too tricky for a smaller rider. Polly has the typical pony tricks up her sleeve and can buck or drop a shoulder if she thinks you are unsteady. Having been with me on schooling/sales livery for a few weeks, Polly will give up any tricks once she realises her rider is both capable & unphased. She benefits from being worked more often than not. Therefore she is looking for a home with a competent junior who can confidently navigate her in the show ring or in show jumping, alternatively she is a nice comfortable and safe hack for a lightweight adult who doesn’t want a big horse. Polly is in no way dangerous or persistent, she has just like many other ponies, learnt the tricks of the trade. On the ground she is very easy, can be handled and groomed by children, will stand in her stable quietly, great for the farrier (barefoot with great hardy feet), loads & travels very well. She does prefer her own company, but is happily turned out at home with her owners 2 mares. Up to date with teeth, back, physio, farrier & worming. Sold with recent vetting certificate. Videos available on request. Viewings & vettings welcome.
