$200 OBO Knox is a trained Hackney Pony, he is currently in a pasture by himself which is one reason he is up for sale. I purchased Knox thinking that i could get him back into riding on a daily basis because he hadn't since he was about three years old. After having him for a couple weeks i realized that he was very cautious of people, he didn't trust me and i believe that he was currently abused or mistreated. I have rode him about 10 different times bareback with just a bit. He did well and usually listens but little things scare him. I believe if he was in a pasture with many other horses and was worked with everyday for a short time he would eventually come out of this issue. However he is a really sweet pony and has never tried anything with me, he's never bucked kicked or tried to bite me. He is completely bombproof when it comes to vehicles and other animals he couldn't care less and that was one reason why i believe he was mistreated by humans because humans seem to be the only thing to bother him. I have a hard time catching him but he seems to do really well with younger children catching him. He loves baths! he will stand still while being sprayed by a hose and sometimes will drink out of the hose. When he is finally caught he is a joy to be around. My sisters and i have fun taking him on walks (Like a dog i know) and having him trot and strut his stuff. I really want to see him in a better home where he can either be worked with daily or have many other horse or companions to live with. If i could id keep him but it seems unfair to keep him in a pasture alone because i only have enough room for one pony. Please understand he is broke just needs a refresher course and someone he can learn to trust.
