Sparky has been in our family for 2 years. We need to find a true beginner pony for our children and while they have learned a lot with him he is better suited for a small adult or intermediate youth/child rider. We bought him from an Amish family and have been using him as a lesson horse for our 8 year old daughter. He has come a long way since we bought him and is great with his ground manners and can be ridden walk, trot, canter both ways. He is used to our four children around him every day and stands great for them brushing and picking his feet. Our daughter stands on his back and slides off him from behind and he stands perfectly still. He is perfect on the leadline during lessons with children but needs a stronger rider when being ridden independently. We want a great home for Sparky where he will be ridden and loved on regularly. He is a sweet boy that just needs a more confident rider.
