Perfect pony for a confident rider that has been trained to ride with leg pressure and has a soft hand. She loads well, trailers well, will stand for the farrier, loves to be bathed, no problems with the clippers or other horses. She has been shown in halter and walk/trot classes. She competed last weekend and placed first in the cavalletti class and first in the crossrail class and was fabulous in the 18" class. I've free jumped her over a 28" jump. She has lovely form and could easily jump higher. She has a nice smooth trot. You couldn't ask for a horse with better ground manners. She can be ponied and can pony other horses. She'll go over bridges, tarps, through water with no problem. She was qualified to be junior mounted posse horse. She has been in parades and gone on many many trail rides. She was shown at the state 4-H horse show last year. She has also been used for rodeo queen horsemanship. I just can't say enough about this awesome pony.
