Say hello to Henry!
Henry is now looking for his home as a driven pony.
Henry is a handsome and established driving pony who loves having a job to do. He is looking for a perfect partner who will shower him with love and affection, as well as keeping his weight in check by keeping him active as he is prone to weight gain.
Henry is a very easy going and laid back boy who adores attention from anyone and everyone; he would happily stand for hours to be groomed and receive a fuss. Henry is happy to take it easy out on pleasure drives, and equally happy to step it up a gear and compete should the opportunity arise. He has proven to be enthusiastic in his work and responds well to voice aids. He is very polite, always giving 100% to whatever is being asked of him.
