Say hello to Cassandra!

Cassandra is looking for a home as a ridden pony.

Cassandra is looking for a home as ridden pony. Having recently returned from a loving home through no fault of her own, she is now ready to find her next perfect partner to have some adventures with. Cassandra is ridden bitless as we have found she is happier with this method and is looking for a rider who can continue her education. Cassandra is a sweet and straight forward mare who is proving to be sensible in all situations. She is very polite and loves attention from her handlers, standing happily for cuddles and a groom. She always puts a smile on your face with her sweetness and is a firm favourite with everyone who spends time with her. You can guarantee that Cassandra will give everything she can to you, and all she asks for in return is to be loved.

Cassandra is a forward girl tor ride, really enjoying her work and seems to prefer going out hacking to being in the school. That said, in the school she is confident in walk and trot and has just started to canter under saddle. She will hack out confidently both on and off the lead rein and has faced varied traffic including farm machinery and motorbikes and has taken it all in her stride. She is very good in all aspects of ground work including lunging in all three paces and long-lining both in and out of the school.
