"Poppy" Unregistered Connemara; sound & healthy with a great work ethic, 14.1 hh and 12 years old. Poppy was ridden by a young rider for 4 years and spent some time as a jumping lesson horse. She is caring enough to do this work, but will not be sold to a regular lesson program home. She knows all her ring work, lovely walk, rhythmic trot, slow steady canter, 20 M circles, canter leads, lateral flexion, leg yield and enjoys jumping. More whoa than go in the ring. Very happy to get out on new adventures; not herd bound, sensible in new environments, good with traffic and would make a stellar and energetic trail ride partner. Poppy is barefoot and would only need shoes/boots if in hard work and/or rough ground. She was recently wormed and had her teeth checked (will need floating next year), loads easily, cross-ties, lunges, good ground manners, fine with kids/dogs underfoot, goes out on group rides, stands quietly for tacking and mounting, no vices.
Poppy will thrive best with a single rider or a family with horse experience who has loving kindness to offer. Poppy appreciates a rider with soft hands who is balanced, grounded, consistent, kind and who also has the confidence/experience to set good boundaries. This is a horse who wants to work; waiting at the gate and happy to get out with her human every day, she can be ridden with a rope bridle or snaffle (likes a Myler), and she needs a very well fitted saddle.
She is currently boarded in Cobble Hill with a professional trainer who specializes in holistic training and is working on developing her topline with groundwork, bodywork and correct posture under saddle.
This is a fantastic horse who has a lot to give.
Good home very important, price is firm. VIDEO LINK https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJxIOd_iAlQ
