Description – Buckskin is a 13.2hh, 8 year old, Welsh X, dun gelding.
History – Buckskin arrived at Bransby Horses through a legacy agreement.
Behaviour & Handling – Buckskin is a really sweet, kind and sensible pony. He is a pleasure to do on the ground if you take everything at his pace. He is a sensitive pony to ride and needs a well balanced, experienced and confident rider. He has three paces, but you do have to work for them. He recently won two dressage classes, he is happy jumping low level and hasn’t been phased by anything we have put him at. Buckskin still needs a lot of help from his rider with his jumping but he has jumped coloured fences, fillers, water trays and arena XC jumps. He is good to hack on his own and doesn’t get fizzy or strong.
Perfect Match – Buckskin is still very green and because of his sensitive nature he will need consistent work to really bring out the best in him. He loves a fuss and will be an ideal pony for a confident teenager or small adult rider who will take time with him and create a special bond. He will quite happily do a little bit of everything at a low level.
Stabling/Shelter – Happy living out and/or being stabled. Does thrive on routine.
Companionship – Ideally in own field next to other horses.
Forage/Feed – Would need to have a managed diet due to being a good doer.
Rug – Would need a rug if clipped in winter.
Ailments – None.
Medication – None.
Vices – None.
Feet – Shod in front. Good with farrier.
Dentist – Good.
Vet – Good.
Clip – Good.
