Meet Kirby

Welsh Pony X Gelding 12.3hh, 23yrs

Kirby is a predictable and even tempered, well mannered pony. He's good to groom, trim, lead & handle.

Kirby's background is largely unknown, however he's been a riding pony in the past and has had a basic to intermediate level of education. He lunges fine, he's a bit unsure but not silly in any way.

We have test ridden him several times and he is easy to saddle up, obedient at a walk and trot and good in new surroundings, however he's not being ridden regularly.
Under experienced supervision Kirby would suit being a lead rein pony for a young child, or an independent pleasure riding pony for an older child.

Kirby has been neglected before coming to us and has some white hair along his back that may be due to untreated rain scald, however he is also a Roan Bay, so this may have always been part of his colouring.

If you can give Kirby the great forever home that he deserves, please contact us for more information about him.
