DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor)

We have had Nugget for nearly 4 years.We believe he has been broken to harness in his previous home.He is extremely smart! Which means his new family will have to have horse experience and be ok with being the boss.HE IS DEFENTLY NOT A BEGINNERS PONY as he was sold to us as.He would ideally need to be a lead line pony until you get confidence with him and you get to know him. The naughty pony! - he will try to intimidate you,but once you stand your ground he knows to be respectful. He will test this every now and then.- will pigroot to get out of riding, once the kids don't care and ride out the pigroot he then trys the drop and roll at any moment, once the kids work out when he is about to do that and kick him on so he can't drop and roll he actually gives in.- he isnt overally fussed on pampering (he hasnt really had a choice since our daughter has been riding him)- has on only 3 occasions bit the kids, all times it has been because they have stopped him from eating grass.- Nugget does not I mean not like to canter both kids have had him cantering but he just hates it.- In new situations Nugget can be a bit jumpy and looky. The good pony! - Nugget knows his ground work, Nugget and the kids have had lessons with a natural horsemanship trainer- loves being a lead line horse, he will follow you all day!- he is happy to stand and be tied up- he loves games, obstacles the dam anything fun! He loves getting in the float and truck.-  can be lead off another horse.- gets his feet trimmed regularly - holds his weight very very well, - is easily caught rugged and wormed.- has taught our kids how to ride the good and bad.- has been to novelty/gymkhana events - doesnt mind wandering off on trail rides.- is great with dogs, chooks, sheep, motorbikes and bikes. Nugget all round has been such a great horse to have. He has taught the kids to be vigilant, how to mangage challenging behaviours and be prepared for anything Nugget throws at them! It is a hard sale but both kids have moved on to bigger horses but we know from experience he is way to smart to be just a paddock pet. Pick up location: Barnawartha VIC
