Say hello to Fenton
Fenton is ready to find a home as a ridden pony.
*Fenton is not located at our Bransby Horses site*
Having recently returned from a home through no fault of his own, Fenton is ready to find a loving home where he can continue his education. He is still green and can be forward off the leg so will need an experienced, sympathetic and gentle rider to help him continue to mature into a well-rounded pony.
Fenton is an extremely handsome and eye-catching young man, and while he can sometimes be unsure in a new and unfamiliar situation, he is always polite and will try 100% in anything asked of him. He loves nothing more than spending time with his handler, having a groom and a cuddle.
Education: Fenton is still early on in his education but is showing good potential, with three good paces and happily working in the school as well as out on hacks. Fenton has recently popped a small jump with a rider on board, however this is still new to him so will need additional education.
*Fenton has a maximum rider weight limit of 8 stone / 50kg*
