Meet Hopper

Share this profile

Hopper is a striking skewbald gelding who really stands out from the crowd. Hopper is a cracking wee pony who is looking for a little jockey to go on lots of adventures with. He has taken to work brilliantly well and is happily long reining around the farm in his saddle. Hopper has had our dummy rider on with no issues and has just had his first walk around our arena with a child on board. He is going to make a fantastic child’s lead rein/first pony with a bit more work out in a loan home and will be adored by the whole family. Please note that Hopper has a combined saddle and rider weight limit of 50kg. Hopper has a nice forward going walk and trot but is very sensible and rarely spooks; he is so good that he is our go to babysitter when horses start long reining. He will happily go out long reining alone or in company, nothing much fazes him. Hopper currently has front shoes on and is well mannered for the farrier but will need someone to hold him so he doesn't fidget, he may need hind shoes on if he was required to do more road work. Hopper is great to catch and loves coming into the barn for a pamper; he would stand all day for a child to groom and fuss over as he loves kisses and cuddles. He is a very playful pony and is quite cheeky in the field and will try to rule the roost, but a more dominant gelding quickly puts him in his place. Hopper is looking for a gelding only herd as he cannot live with mares however, he is happy over the fence from them. He has suffered from laminitis in the past so it is essential that he is kept on restricted grazing in his new home and may need to be supplemented with soaked hay as he will try going through electric fencing when he’s hungry. If handsome little Hopper sounds like the right pony to join your family, please apply online.
