Adorable Hackney Pony that Rides & Drives!
If you have ever wanted to try out a Hackney Pony but were unsure if you
could handle one, look no further! Showtime is the one who can show you the ropes! If you aren't quite sure what a Hackney Pony is, here is a link that
will help you out! American Hackney Horse Society and check out their "New
to the World of Hackneys" section on the left hand side. Showtime is an
absolutely IDEAL starter or school pony. He is unbeatably quiet and forgiving
which makes him a great choice for people to fumble through and learn with.
He will fall asleep while you harness or saddle him, groom him, shoe him, etc.
Showtime truly does have endless patience! In harness, this guy is as light as can be on the lines and 2 fingers will easily hold him. He isn't the biggest and
fanciest trotter we have but he can be pretty showy if you ask him for it!
Snap the whip in the air, cluck to him, and he will give you that trademark
Hackney action. However, say "Whoa" or ask him to come down to a walk and
he instantly returns to his quiet and calm self. He does not get hot and is a
breeze to handle. Not only does Showtime drive beautifully, he is also broke to ride. Under saddle, he is honestly not in a hurry to go anywhere.
This boy is beautifully put together with all the eye appeal a person could ask
for! He is also pleasantly plump and could stand to lose a few pounds! He has
plenty of chrome, huge expressive eyes, and the cutest little fox ears that
turn in. He will win you over within moments of meeting him! He does have a
bumpy scar on the inside of his right hind foot - just above the coronary
band. It is old and poses no soundness concerns - it just is an ugly little thing
that we do want to mention. Showtime is 100% sound and sporting road shoes
all the way around. He is ready to go!
Please take the time to view his photo page on our website www.redkstable.com and check out his videos.

His riding segment shows walking only and its not because he doesn't trot.....it is because Amber has spent a lifetime riding stock horses and they trot NOTHING like this! :) She will be practicing daily and when
she figures out how to post his trot and not look superbly entertaining, we will
post new footage!
