This boy is an athlete who will put his whole heart into his work and win for you in which ever discipline you choose. He is very nicely built with a powerful shoulder and hind end. Will be a perfect sport pony for a young child or smaller adult. Handled daily, leads, loads, ties, bathes, clips, and stands for the farrier/vet wonderfully. Has been blanketed, stalled, and ponied on trails. Shogun accepts a saddle and bridle with no fuss and will be backed in the spring of 2015 if not already sold. Though in the meantime he is currently beginning his driving training. This guy shows no fear and will be a bold riding mount. Shogun is registered with the American Connemara Pony Society.
Note: Shogun was gelded on Feb 18th and is doing wonderfully
