"Fred" is a stocky appy pony who would make someone a great trail companion!! Fred is steady and bombproof and has been with my lesson program for over a year. Sadly, we are retiring him from the lesson program as he has trouble cantering the fairly tight turns around the ring. He is great for the kids at walk and trot and is a blast for trail rides and games. However, he is blind in his left eye and he trips when turning left at the canter. He has galloped cross country and handles open spaces and straightaways just fine. He has no trouble jumping and stepping over poles or obstacles on the trail. Fred is sound and not on any maintenance. He does however have a history of laminitis and will need limited grass on turn-out.
I will be happy to answer any questions about Fred!
