  • MITCHELCOMBE DUSTY - Approx 12hh bay gelding 5 year old Heritage Dartmoor Pony.
 
Dusty came to us from our friends at Mitchelcombe Stud earlier this year. He was very well handled as a youngster and had been away conservation grazing. When he first came to us he took no time at all to get back into the swing of things and loved having more human contact. He long reined beautifully and was a saint for the children handling him in the yard. He was soon under saddle and being ridden on the lead rein by a 6 year old rider around the farm and the lanes. He now leads off another horse in walk, trot and canter, with or without a rider on board. He has seen rural traffic and is used to livestock, farm traffic and kids. He has been to a show for experience. Dusty is ready for the show ring in lead rein classes, however would be equally at home just hacking and being a friend to children. He is good to catch, trailer, foot trimming etc. Dusty is passported, microchipped and wormed ready for his new home. Priced at £950.
