China is an 18 year old Argentine Thoroughbred mare who was donated to a college polo program, but did not do well with a lot of beginners trying to play polo on her. She is absolutely lovely in all ways - ground and riding manners are fabulous and she has literally not done one single thing wrong since coming to us. Clips, ties, loads. She does ride like a polo pony - high headed and forward, moves laterally rather than bending - but solid and reliable. Excellent neck rein! We are working on retraining her now to go more like a hunter. China has been ridden on trails and has been to the beach. She would be great for a quiet handed intermediate or better rider, and would be fine for a young rider. There isn't a mean bone in this mares body and no sign of being marish - she rides the same every time you take her out. She would be great for general pleasure riding, she likes to jump X's, easy trails (no mountain climbing, please), possibly team sorting or penning. She could still play polo but due to her age, we would restrict her to one chukker only in zero goal or slower competition. Strongly prefer a home that has some turnout to offer her. Should continue to wear front shoes due to a crack that has grown out but that we'd like to stay protected. Interested? Fill out an application on our website at poloponyrescue.com.
