Meet Roo (Rio)

Share this profile

Roo is ready to find a new home as a non ridden companion due to not standing up to ridden work. Roo is a very pretty little pony with a friendly temperament. She can be a little sassy with other horses in the field, but soon settles down. She is good to catch, handle, groom, bath and for the farrier. Roo is not overly fond of needles, so the vet just needs to be quick when giving vaccinations. She needs her weight watching, especially in the summer months, so would be best suited to a home with ponies of similar needs. Roo does like to explore, so it would be nice to find her a home where she could be taken out for inhand walks. She doesn't like being left on her own, so will need another friend at all times. If you can offer Roo a home, please apply online.
