Unicorn buckskin part-gypsy cob (registered) pony for lease in the Auckland region!
I need to find a great lease home for ‘Pony’ (real name Mighty Bear, but everyone calls him Pony).
Pony is about 8 and is a real gem. He’s brave, loves to go out, loves to be around people, is very willing and an exceptionally quick learner. If you pull up in the float he’ll self-load whether you’ve asked him too or not because he just wants to go out. If you’re at the gate he’ll come over right away and follow you about your chores. He’s not into being petted but loves to be mentally engaged. No issues with float, farrier etc. Can be ridden alone and can be brought in from being turned out easily. Has been paddocked with sheep and chickens and been around dogs (and machinery) a lot. Very safe.
We’ve had him about 2.5 years and have mostly hacked out with him around Muriwai, Woodhill and the Waikato. He’s very used to all Muriwai beach has to offer (kite surfers, dirt bikes, vehicles on the beach, paragliders etc). At times he’s been regularly hacked out bareback with just a halter. He loves a little jump and swimming and really enjoys liberty work. He seems to have had some schooling in his past life but I haven’t tapped into it much.
He can be pushy and strong if he doesn’t want to do something (pretty much just lunging or being led somewhere he doesn’t want to go). And I always keep an eye on his head for the occasional communication by trying to nip. He’s not for beginners or first-time horse owners as he knows how to take advantage if given the opportunity.
Home measured is probably 14’2 max. Always barefoot, great feet. Currently turned out and has been for the last six-ish months with the odd ride to the beach. He’ll need some work to get him in shape and his fitness up.
This lease will be under contract, and I would love to be able to visit him. The lessor will need to cover all his costs and will need a saddle as I don’t have one at present. He will come with bridle, covers, halter. Lessor will need a horse friendly property with other horses, and an active plan for Pony as he is dying to experience life, loves to learn and have adventures. He would be excellent for Pony club or cowboy games and is a great trekking pony.
He truly is the best pony I could wish for and this is a difficult lease, but I want the best for him.
