Danny - 14.2hh Welsh Section D
Danny joined our herd in September 2018, showing signs of worry and anxiety, and so obviously needed a quiet, gentle partner, as he appeared to arrive carrying a load of his 11 years of 'baggage'! He joined up with one of our livery horses, and they have been field companions ever since, sharing food, treats, and gaining self confidence when they ride out together.
We know very little about his past history, but it took a while to get him used to being ridden, so we guess he was a driving pony, or even a breeding stallion. However, now, as a gelding, he is settling in very well, rides out well in company and comfortable as a lead pony. He responds best to a very gentle hand with a confident lightweight rider, and by Easter will be a lovely ride for our good teenage riders.
Welcome to the herd Danny!
