APALOOSA GELDING FOR SALE

For Sale
Appaloosa Gelding, 14 years, 13:2 hands
Spotty.Full name: Merllyns Spot The Dot
Simply the best of our ponies that we have ever owned and for over 3 years. Willing, kind, fun, uncomplicated, sparky, loveable, tough and sound. We have our horses at home and look after them ourselves. Very loved by us. Only for sale as my son has outgrown him and wishes just to play polo now after being an all-rounder when younger. Spotty has competed with us with the Pony Club in our ownership (show jumping /ODE) and attended Senior Camp. He has played 3 seasons Handley Cross Pony Club Polo for the Royal Artillery Team.
We are active members of the Royal Artillery branch. In 2015, Spotty is placed if show jumped and has brought home silverware. In a previous life, Spotty was a BSJA pony and we have his height certificate. We are still in touch with the previous owners who I am sure would be able to act as s sounding. Spotty must only be sold to a home we are happy with, where we know that he’ll be treasured, enjoyed and used to his full potential. A local sale would be preferred, ideally in the same Pony Club branch. Sound. Never bucks or rears or does anything nasty. Open to vetting. References available. £5,000 including tack. In all an extra special fun pony. Truly a one off. Pictures below. Contact Sally or Julian on: 07825 654 338 / 07967 489 769 julianheathcotehobbins@yahoo.co.uk
