Lead Rein

Say hello to Castanet 

Castanet is now looking to find a home as a lead rein pony.

*Castanet is not located at our Bransby Horses site*

Castanet is a stunning registered Dartmoor pony who has been started under saddle and previously been a lead rein pony for a small child. More recently, she has begun being ridden away by an older child and is progressing all the time. She has a very gentle demeanour with children and a kind temperament. She can show a little of her cheeky personality when being caught from the field; she will sometimes make you work for the luxury of her company!

She can be a little timid and lack confidence on occasion so needs a confident and knowledgeable handler to help bring out the best in her and help her reach her full potential – potential is certainly something this little lady has in abundance.
