Willow is a very loving and sweet been there done that got the t.shirt type of pony. I bought willow as a favour for a friend whose child (small 10 year old novice, just out of riding school) was finding him too much. Willow would be suitable for a confident child seeking their second pony who wants to win in every discipline. He by no means acts his age and has endless life in him.
Schooling: Willow moves very nicely on the flat. He's got an elegant movement that really turns heads. Not strong at all, requires minimal contact and flows nicely through transitions.
Hacking: dream to hack, not bothered by any traffic. Happy to canter up the field on the buckle, even with his previous owner who was very nervous.
Jumping: Willow has a super smooth pop to him, quite happy to jump cross poles to 90cm+ and anything In between. He does get more buzzy whilst jumping but still not strong and nothing that isn't controllable for someone confident. He just really enjoys it! Would be great for a child who loves to jump, he's very much a point and go type that'll jump off any stride. Very careful and never stops. He has also XC schooled with previous child jumping everything.
Competing: Willow's owner prior to the nervous child did everything with him from PC, XC, Showjumping etc. He has jumped round an 80cm course with us. Not bothered by fillers. Would be very quick against the clock if his rider wanted him to be and would no doubt turn on a sixpence if asked. In addition to this, he'd also take to dressage competitions, mini ODEs.
Other: He is good to clip, shoe, load, travel, groom, pick out feet etc etc etc. The little man practically lives off fresh air, and has been turned out with large geldings with no problem.
