Sold

Gentle, kind and honest 14hh 7 yr cob mare for hacking, lead-rein, fun rides and companion in South Petherton

£2,750

Sadly I am selling my gentle honest girl, Molly, who is no longer able to school or jump due to stifle cartilage inflammation. Investigations by the vet showed inflammation of the cartilage between stifle joints, unlikely to cause any problems as long as she's not schooled or jumped. I compete at Dressage, so regretfully, I'm looking for a hacking/lead-rein/fun ride/companion home for Molly. She's level headed, brave, curious and has done everything I've asked of her.
She's is fine left in the stable alone when her stable-mate leaves for a hack or in the trailer. Molly's not worried about bicycles, dogs jumping out and barking, motorbikes, kids running toward her. Molly will readily ride past road works, lawn mowers, prams, and the school when the kids are out playing! She rides the bridleway along-side the A303 Ilminster Bypass, and the bridges over and under the bypass. I can't say she's bombproof with traffic yet, as she's still learning that tractors aren't monsters, so I usually pull her into a drive or gateway but she'll go past if they stop. She's improving all the time though.
Molly usually hacks alone but is super laid back with another horse too. She's not a kick along plod nor really forward, just a nice steady ride and very responsive to the lightest aids. She's never spun, run-off, bucked, kicked, reared. bitten or been nappy. Molly loads and travels well, is great to shoe, with vet and dentist. Up to date injections, teeth, shoes and worming. The perfect home for Molly would be with a smaller adult rider, mother-daughter share, lead-rope, and family friend for kids to learn the ropes on and fuss with.
If you're looking for a pony to quietly hack 1-4 X's a week Molly would be ideal, however, she could do more if being ridden off road, as it's easier on any horses' joints.
My Vet is happy to discuss Molly's diagnosis with a prospective buyer. Lwvtb considered, but must be willing to fully insure Molly in case of accidents/injury, etc. Videos on request.
