Comanche, Is the cutest little pony!! He is rising 5yo, 11.1hh, skewbald, welsh x Shetland. Comanche is very friendly, always comes as soon as he sees you coming in his direction. He has a surprisingly comfy trot and canter for such a little pony. He has been led around with kids on his back since he was very young. Comanche was purchased as a weanling and this year it was decided to have him broken in properly. He is a very quick learner (it would be great if all horses learnt their lesson so quickly). He had been kept in a chock yard for 12months and learnt that people feed him out of their hands, so he came here very keen to check out your hands at every opportunity. We have got him out of that, but he can still from time to time get a bit lippy, (he investigates with his lips) but he has never bitten. We would recommend being very strict about where and when he is fed, just so he doesn’t revert back to his old habits. There is no vice under saddle whatsoever. Happy to walk, trot and canter, halt and back up when asked. Goes with a click and stops with a whoa. He walks straight on the float every time and there is no drama to bridle or saddle. Great to pick up his feet and never kicks or pulls his feet away from you, so is great for the kids to handle. He loves attention and will take washing, brushing and being fussed over for ages, all day if you have the time. This is a very sad sale of a much-loved pony but he is just too small for his riders now. Recently he has been used for lessons and had the most nervous kids on him and has not put a foot out of place. He has attended a Pony Club rally and he really enjoyed his day out. He certainly showed some of the more experienced horses up, by just doing as he was asked without any drama. This is a seriously good pony that just needs a few more life experiences with a new best friend. Ideally, we would love for him to go to a knowledgeable home that will keep going with a bit of education. He has never once, bucked, bolted reared or even kicked up his heels. If he has not been ridden for a while he just gets a 5 min lunge and he is good to go for a trail ride or to carry a tiny tot around the yard for a lesson. He is certainly a very easy pony to have around and is very much loved here, we would just love him to find a loving forever home. For sale to the very best of homes. Teeth, chiro, farrier and drenching all up to date. References available. Asking $3500 ONO phone 0437 431622.
