Stunning Australian Pony Gelding
Heart breaking sale but child rider has moved on to bigger pony. Bailey is a stunning Australian Pony measuring 12.2hh and 9 years young.
Bailey is a well built, very good doer, solid Australian pony Gelding. He started his riding life as a leadline pony and has been pushed out of his comfort zone both under lead and saddle. He has attended Pony Club camp, Rally days, gymkhanas and Sporting days. Not to mention he has also attended a couple of Open t-shirt hack days on lead and also ridden. He always comes home with many ribbons including broad sashes.
He has been used as a leadline pony and also a first off lead pony. Bailey can be a cheeky pony and does sometimes require a strong hand to bring him into line whether it be child or adult. He has recently spent time away at the trainers and has been given a refresher with the trainer being very happy with him.
He will jump, trot circles, run around barrels, play with flags and bend around poles nicely. He is very sure footed and can jump 60cm nicely (Hasn’t been asked to go any higher). He is a good doer and does not hype on food. He has never foundered and is definitely an Open pony not a Hunter.
Bailey is easy to worm, float, shoe, clip etc. He comes into frame quite easily and is ridden in a soft snaffle. He has a very soft mouth and is responsive to leg aides. He will work a nice circle with the right jockey on board but he wouldn't be suited to just being a 'show' pony even though he has done some of this, I would say he would be a perfect all-rounder pony. I would not say he is a beginners pony. Even though my daughter has had him as first off lead. I would classify him as a 2nd/3rd pony. Possibly 10-11yr old that is a confident rider and can pull a pony into line if needed.
He is not food focused and is happy to be in a paddock with others or by himself. He respects Electric fences and is very easy to rug.
Currently he is bare foot. He is up to date with Hendra, Teeth, worming and other vaccinations. This is a sad sale as he is a very much loved member of the family.
Videos available upon request. - Please only serious buyers. This is a really hard sale for our family.
This sale is because he is not getting the work required and is going to waste in the paddock he needs to find his new little jockey.
