Shelby is looking for a kind, confident pony rider to keep taking her up the heights. We believe she has potential to be a cool mini prix pony.
She has been to lots of training days, pony club and cross country days (which she loves) in the 2+ years that I have had her. She has also had professional dressage and show jump schooling. She absolutely loves hacking and is happy by herself or in company. At home she lets me hop on her with her rug on and go for a hack in a halter.
We started taking her to shows last year. At Equifest 2022 she did her first 90cm and the pony club teams event (80 & 85cm) in the pouring rain without a fuss. She has been to shows most weekends where she competed to 1m and has done show hunter and hunter jumping/round the ring. She is always complemented on her stunning looks. She has a cute jump with plenty of scope and has shown to be brave and loves it.
She takes everything in her stride and is very honest and willing, she just wants to please and does her very best for you. She loves her person and is the absolute sweetest pony once she gains your trust. We believe she had a rough start as she is sensitive and needs reassurance at times. She is great with stock and used to dogs.
She has no dirt, doesn’t bite, kick, rear, bolt, buck etc. She can be a bit mareish and a bully in the paddock to other horses. But she does get along well with most of ours. She self loads onto our truck and float and travels awesome. She is great with the farrier (so long as they don’t charge in and give her a fright). She is a good doer and will eat pretty much anything. Because she is sensitive she’s a bit unsure about drenching to start but once she works out that no-one’s going to hurt her, it’s pretty easy - we haven’t had to put it in her feed.
I am selling her because I am on hacks.
I would love to find her a long term home with a kind yet capable rider who will give her cuddles and keep giving her mileage to see where they can go. I see her as being either an all rounder or with a show jump focus - though I’d prefer she goes somewhere she can do some varied things and enjoy life.
We believe Shelby was broken in as a 7yo so had a late start and has not been over jumped.
She has just had four weeks schooling with Emma Watson, she is fit, healthy, sound and ready to go on her next adventure.
Serious buyers only, and will only go to the very best of homes as she is very loved.
