Nutmeg is a big ball of potential!
She's about 13.2hh (unofficial), 5yrs old with a gorgeous buckskin coat
She will make a great allrounder pony for a confident little rider. In the year I've owned her she has done a bit of everything! From trail riding, pony camps, kids lessons, showjumping to pony club style games.
She is definitely a natural jumper and she loves it. She will try her heart out! So far, I've only done small courses up to 80cm as she's quite young so I've limited the amount of jumping she does and focused more on exposing her to lots of different things. She has free jumped up to 1m10 from a trot.
She is a forward pony but is super responsive to voice commands. Definitely goes better with riders that use their body and voice over excessive use of reins. Ridden in a gentle snaffle.
As can be expected from young horses she can be somewhat shy and anxious on the ground but this is rarely externalised. She hardly ever spooks, generally she will just freeze and tense up if she is uncomfortable, giving you an opportunity to comfort her and address the situation.
However, ridden she has a great work ethic and attitude and is extremely brave, she will always try whatever you ask of her!
She has been used for kids horse riding lessons as well as pony camps. However, I think she benefits from being a one person horse.
She's been on trail rides and to the beach and was completely unphased by anything! When the older lead horses would spook or refuse to go on she would happily take the lead, at the beach she was the first one in the water.
While I haven't taken her out yet, I have no doubt she would make a great little cross country pony given the scope she has when she jumps, how brave she is, she loves water and just never gets tired!
Has had regular chiro work done, dentist, and farrier. She has great feet and has never had shoes on. She keeps on weight nicely (as most ponies do) but she doesn't gain weight excessively in spring and summer the way some ponies tend to do.
Her behaviour doesn't change at all whether she is home or out and about. She is currently paddocked with another pony and TB mare, they all 3 get along great but she can be a bully around meal times. (loves her food!)
No buck, rear, bite. Super easy with farrier and float!
Will only consider selling her to the best of homes. Only reason I'm considering finding her a new home is because I'm pregnant and lack the time to keep her in regular work as well as my other horses.
If I don't find the right home for her, she will just get an extra spell until I'm back to full time riding.
She will be kept in work and be going on regular outings (next one is to jump club) until end of November.
