DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor)
Matty is a sweet 13 year old welsh A gelding approx 11.3h..he is registered however we were only given a photocopy of his registration when we bought him and have never got around to getting the paper reissued.Matty is best suited to an experienced horsey home as a leadline or first off the lead pony for a confident child. Matty was bought for my nervous 6 year old and while they have had some good times together - her interest has waned a bit and she has started to prefer riding another pony on our property so it leaves Matty without a rider.Matty is a sweet pony but not quite a unicorn and therefore he does need to be with an experienced family who can help their child as necessary. Matty can be handled by children exclusively and will tie all day while they brush and fuss over him. He will pull through his head collar though when being led by a child if he sees a yummy patch of grass. I walked beside my daughter, ready to correct until she was confident to give him a big pull back and now he is pretty happy to follow her along passed all the grass.Under saddle Matty can take a non steering/not confident child to the gate..my daughter rides him in a full cheek piece bit and pony reins which keeps Matty responsive. He is lazy by nature much prefering to walk or stop at the closest adult but his trot is quite forward only needing a squeeze to go up a gear. His brakes are great as he would much prefer to plod along. He will canter with some encouragement from his rider.We have taken Matty to 3 pony club rallies and he has been very well behaved each time. Matty can be bossy in the paddock especially with food therefore with us he is paddocked with a few bossy mares which have sorted him out. He does have some white markings down his back which we are unsure what they are from (possibly rain scald at some point?). It doesn't effect him in anyway. He is 100% sound and hasn't had any health issues during the time with us.
