I'm am sadly having to loan or sell my childhood pony, Poppy, due to being pregnant (I'm due 25th December so really need to try and get her settled into a new home as soon as possible to avoid the stress of it around the time the baby arrives). Poppy is passported as 12.1hh but actually measures 12.3hh, liver chestnut mare with a lovely kind nature and some cute tricks, such as kissing for polos and following you around the paddock. She's very talkative and affectionate and loves a good groom or just some fuss. She has competed show-jumping, XC, one and three-day events, pony club and hunted with the Warwickshire and Leicestershire hunt up until 2014. Since then she has been 'retired' to a field due to being outgrown.She additionally qualified for POYs through the Western Lawns qualifier in 2010 but didn't attend. She can be a little naughty to be caught (only when with a lot of other horses), but when alone in a paddock or wearing a headcollar she is fine. If you intend on putting her out with other horses, she is very well behaved and gets along well with other horses, as she has been used as a companion for elderly horses and to help wean foals. She is in perfect health and has no issues, however when overweight (specifically during the summer) she can be mild-laminitis prone, so we usually put her on near-bare pasture throughout summer months, but this does make her feet a little sensitive, she's fine when I pick them up but can get stroppy with the farrier. The best distraction is polos or a bucket of feed! I would suggest she goes as a companion only, due to her 3 + years off work, however if you are interested in buying her then it's entirely up to you. I will only sell to an experienced home ONLY, and no novice riders please as she is not a novice ride. Poppy and I await a loving home that are looking for a companion preferably.
