Penny Candy (lighter riding only)

Penny Candy is a 2007 Saddlebred x pony mare who stands approximately 13.2hh. Penny has a lot of experience under saddle, but she does require a confident rider because she is quick and energetic. She has had a lot of training and knows her cues and needs a rider who will know how to direct her. She came back to us in July 2023  from an adoptive home because her rider had outgrown her. She’s suitable for a confident rider on the smaller side (older child, teenager or small adult). She has been trail ridden and she crosses obstacles and water. She also has experience in the 4H show ring and training level dressage.  We would love to see Penny go to a new home where she can be a lighter trail horse or do some light pleasure riding and showing (no competitive gaming or jumping). She has some soreness/arthritis in her hocks and hock injections may be an option for her in the future. She also has a history of laminitis and equine metabolic syndrome, so a home where she will be kept on a strict diet and get proper farrier care is a must.  She is currently sound and does not require shoes. Penny Candy spent last fall in foster care at AMF Equitation, LLC, where she was being used as a lighter duty lesson horse and was a great favorite among the students. She is currently at HH Stables where she is enjoying a lot of attention and getting some more ride time.
