Say hello to Alicia

Alicia is now ready to find a home as a lead rein pony.

Alicia has spent some time in a loving home, returning through no fault of her own and is now ready to find her next perfect partner to share adventures with!
Alicia is a polite young lady who has fantastic manners on the ground. She loves spending time with her handlers for a groom and is both bold and respectful under saddle. She has a sensitive demeanor so would suit a knowledgeable home with a quiet rider. She is good to do in all ways, though is a little nervous of clippers but with confidence and reassurance she is improving all the time.

She is experienced in all aspects of ground work including working in all 3 paces on the lunge, long lines in the arena and out hacking, pole work and has been ridden both on the lead and solo in walk and trot. Out hacking she prefers to be in front but will go behind if needed. She is good with all traffic including farm machines, cars and push-bikes.
