Worth taking a look at? -video-

I'm in work so can't view the video, but age and price is right, height maybe a bit on the big side, but heck.. I wuv my big ponios ;D

Looks like a beautiful horse with a big stride. I could be totally wrong, but does anyone else think the horse looks a bit rushy/unbalanced on transitions? (not that it would be a deal breaker.)

A very bouncy trot.. almost like he's springing into it. He looks like he knows how to use his back and the rider doesn't seem to be in his way. Definitely worth a look at.

But this is from inexperienced eyes :P

I like her quite a bit. If the price is right, definitely worth a look.

Very nice moving mare with some good riding on her.

When/if you try her, put some pressure on her. Ask for leg yields, lateral, a flying change maybe. Pretty is as pretty does but make sure she will handle pressure without stopping.

Good luck!

I suppose I should give more info!

She's six, had very little done with her and out of a D father and a W mother, so very good lines.

I think they are breeders, and all their prices are reasonable. She is currently at 4900- no budging but we will see ;)

One downside.

She's 1m78. Big, Smaller than Duffy, but still, big... it would depend on how sensitive she is to leg aids, she isn't ridden in spurs though which makes me hopeful.

Other issue.

I now need to find a driver....

I really like her, she is big yes, the rider is doing a very good job of allowing her to travel forward, swing her back and just keep out of her way. She just looks green at this stage. A lovely, unspoilt blank canvas for you to work on.

She looks really nice. Forward moving, springy trot, and seems to have plenty of energy. Let us know how it goes if you go ride her!
