$3,500 · Large Pony Mare

Unregistered Connemara Mare; easy keeper, sound & healthy with a great work ethic and no vices, 14.1 hh and rising 13. Poppy is a lovely large bodied pony and she moves/feels like a horse under saddle. She will pack a young rider around the ring at walk trot canter and over jumps without stepping wrong. She knows all her ring work, lovely walk, rhythmic trot, slow steady canter, 20 M circles, canter leads, and ok with lateral work; more whoa than go with the flatwork, yet very forward to the jumps.
Very happy to get out on new adventures; not herd bound, sensible in new environments, good with traffic and would make a good trail ride partner. Her trail experience is limited, so she can be a bit cheeky like any pony, but still safe and fun for a confident rider of any age. Poppy is barefoot and would only need shoes/boots if in hard work. Loads, cross-ties, lunges, can be a little bargy on the ground, fine with kids/dogs underfoot, goes out on group rides, stands quietly for tacking and mounting.
Poppy will thrive best with a rider with soft hands who is grounded, consistent and kind and who also has the experience/confidence to set boundaries. This is a horse who wants to work; waiting at the gate and happy to get out with her human every day, she can be ridden with a rope bridle or snaffle. Comes with brush kit, blanket, bridle (no bit) and bell boots.
She is currently boarded with a professional trainer who specializes in holistic training and is working on developing her topline and sense of fun with groundwork, bodywork and correct posture under saddle.
Poppy takes a while to warm up to people but once there is a lovely, sweet mare who has a lot to give. Good home very important, will not be sold to a regular lesson program home. VIDEO LINK
