Fly has been a ridden pony in the past who has suffered with laminitis. He is on a weight loss program and we hope his progress will continue in his new home. Fly can be nervous at times. Since having a break from ridden work Fly has become much more confident and easier to do things with. He could be a ridden pony if he went back to basics with backing, lunging, long reining before being tried as a ridden again however we feel a home that could manage him from the ground would suit him better. He currently lives out and is brought in when required to restrict his grazing.
Fly is best kept with geldings although he has previously been mixed in with a large herd of both mares and geldings although he can be a bit too fond of the mares! Fly requires a good routine with a consistent herd.
Fly is fine with electric fencing provided it is on and strong. If the fencing isn’t on he has been known to sneak through it to get to other ponies and grass. He is up to date with the dentist but needs sedating. He also needs sedating to load on a horsebox at the moment, we have started some positive reinforcement work and started some training with him without sedation to improve his confidence with loading. He does travel well once in.
He will be available soon to a home with experience in managing challenging ponies. We feel he will be a rewarding project for someone who has the time and skill required to bring on a pony like him.
