About Horse:Teddy is a 12 year old, big bodied, 14.2hh Welsh cross gelding. For years, Teddy was the MVP (Most Valuable Pony) in a lesson program where he was the reliable steady eddy that first time riders got their start on. He was also a favorite among the adults and more experienced children who showed him locally in the hunters, beginner equitation divisions, and up to the .90 jumpers. After his time being a reliable lesson pony, Teddy spent the past year with a close family friend, and mother of 3, to safely get her back into the eventing game - as well as teaching her 7 year old daughter how to ride and care for horses. Whether you are looking for a steady all around horse for you or your child, or looking to show and compete, Teddy will not disappoint!
In the ring, Teddy is a true confidence builder. He never takes a step out of line, and is the ultimate lesson/packer type. He is more whoa than go, but is still responsive and educated enough for the youngest of riders to be able to safely get around a course without running out of steam. Teddy will walk, trot, and canter smoothly and as slowly as his rider would like. He has the best brakes, easy steering, and will jump absolutely anything from any distance. He is not spooky, doesn’t get worked up, and can absolutely take any kind of joke thrown his way. Cross country, Teddy is a dream. He does not get strong or speedy, and is honest and brave to any and all obstacles. He has schooled up to Novice level fences, and has the flatwork to score well in dressage too!
Off property, Teddy is a trainers dream. He is the same pony anywhere, in any situation. Shows, parades, 4h events, gymkhanas, and the trails - he is just as calm and collected as he would be on a hot summer day in the arena at home. He is a true trailer to ring type of pony that requires no prep or fuss. He enjoys hunter pacing, trail riding, and cross country schooling, and is dummy proof both in and out of the ring. Absolutely anyone of any level can take Teddy out and will be sure to have a safe and fun ride.
In the barn, you guessed it, Teddy is a favorite. He is safe, sweet, and gentle with his handlers - no matter how small or inexperienced. He stands to be groomed, bathed, clipped, and loved on. He is the same pony if he’s ridden once a week or every day, and will be just as quiet when stalled as he is turned out. Teddy gets along well with all of his pasture mates, and can be turned out with just about anybody. He is the easiest of keepers and requires no special maintenance, medications, or care.
Teddy is available for on or off site year lease. We would love to find him a situation where he can continue to teach and give confidence to his riders. Whether that be in the show ring, just for fun, or both! He is ready to step into any ring or program, and will always happily and safely get the job done!
