Pippin

Pippin is a 14.1hh blue roan welsh pony/ thoroughbred cross gelding who was foaled in 2000. He has been used as a lesson horse and a competition horse. He has dressage and jumping experience. His previous owner describes him as “sassy but safe”. He will test a rider he doesn’t know. He has jumped up to 3′ but is most comfortable at 2′ and under. He can get a little fresh at the canter if he hasn’t been ridden for awhile but is easy at walk/trot. Knows leg yield, shoulders and haunches in, turn on forehand, and turn on haunches. Has been ridden in kimberwicke or regular snaffle. Has only had a western saddle on a couple of times. Has been on a few trail rides but needs advanced rider on trails at this point. Good lesson horse for confident advanced beginner or intermediate rider.  He tends to be a more dominant horse in a group. He will also try to take advantage of a smaller or less experienced handler (trying to grab a bite of grass or walk off in a different direction–nothing dangerous ) but responds well to correction.  Pippin came to us from a good home and has been well taken care of. His previous owner is no longer showing and wanted to give him the best chance at finding a new rider and a forever home!
