Welsh mountain ponyHorses - Beaudesert Nerang Rd, Queensland -
Shadow is a 8 year old Welsh Mountain Pony gelding, standing at 12.3hh with a very stocky build.
This is a very regretful sale as I have owned him since he was a 4 year old, but sadly he's not suitable for my daughter as he needs a strong, experienced rider who won't let him get away with anything. He will only be sold to the best of homes!
He has a lovely nature, comes when he's called in a big paddock and follows you like a dog, but also has a cheeky side and will test the boundaries so a strong leader is needed. He is definitely not a beginner's, push over's, or a childs pony.
Shadow is very smart and a quick learner, he loves to engage and do his best and will excel in the right home. Showing natural jumping ability and speed (for his size), he would be a great little pony clubber. With his beautiful looks he would be stunning in the show ring, and would also be an excellent liberty pony - he's truly a blank canvas.
He stays fat all year round on grass, has great feet (always kept barefoot), and is sound on harder surfaces, does not suffer from QLD itch, bugs and flies don't seem to affect him. He has a beautiful mane and coat even when not rugged.
Shadow has undergone ground work training and my daughter 11 (who is a strong leader on the ground), has worked with him several times with great results. (Please see video)
He has always been handled, but was only started under saddle about 12 months ago, but unfortunately I never had the time to ride him regularly so he's still green and is going to waste.
He has so much to give so it's in his best interest to find a home that will give him the love and training he deserves to bring out his best.
Shadow has just started flat work but has been ridden in a big paddock with and without other horses, walk, trot and canter, he has also been ridden bareback by an adult a few times.
He's great to float, does not stress when taken away from home, he's also good for the farrier and the dentist. My daughter also washes him and cleans out his feet.
He comes with his near new Wintec 500 Cair Wide 16.5 inch dressage saddle that has been sized by a professional saddle fitter, he needs an XX wide gullet anything narrower will slip forward, and cause him pain. Also due to his size, 16.5 is the maximum length saddle he can take.
Experienced home only, no beginners, not a child's pony (unless over 11, strong, determined and highly experienced), please no time wasters!
