$4,500 · Large Pony Mare "Poppy"
Sound, healthy, flea bitten grey grade mare, with a kind disposition; 12 years old and 14.1 hh. Reasonable offers considered to the right home. Poppy was ridden by a young rider for 4 years and also spent some time as a lesson horse. She is caring enough to do this work, but will not be sold to a standard lesson program home. She knows all her ringwork, good walk, rhythmic trot, slow steady canter, 20 M circles, canter leads, lateral flexion, leg yield and enjoys jumping. Very happy to get out of the ring on new adventures; not herd bound, sensible in new environments, good with traffic and would make a stellar and energetic trail ride partner. Poppy is currently wearing shoes to help grow out her feet, but was, and can easily go back to barefoot if properly cared for. She was recently wormed and had her teeth checked (will need floating next year), loads easily into the trailer, crossties, great to brush and pick feet, not spooky or racey, fine with kids/dogs underfoot, goes out on group rides, stands quietly for tacking and mounting.
Poppy will thrive best with a single rider or a family with horse experience, who has loving kindness to offer and will see her as a valued member of the herd. Poppy appreciates a rider who is balanced, grounded, consistent, kind and who also has the confidence/experience to set good boundaries. This is a horse who wants to work; happy to get out with her human every day, she can be ridden with a rope bridle or snaffle (likes a Myler), and she needs a very well fitted saddle.
She is currently boarded in Cobble Hill with a professional trainer who specializes in training through energetic communication and is working on developing her topline with groundwork, bodywork and correct posture under saddle.
This is a fantastic horse who has a lot to give.
