Here is a very special girl that we absolutely adore! She was born and raised on our family’s farm. Ember is as sweet as can be and as cute as a button. She is a pure bread section A welsh pony out of imported stock. She will mature at 12.2hh. Ember is 4 years old. She is a pretty chestnut with a white blaze. Ember is a joy to ride and currently working in our lesson program. The kiddos love riding her and is a favorite for many of our students. Ember has a nice quiet walk, a floaty flat kneed trot, and the most delightful canter. She knows both her leads and has been very lightly started over fences. She rides a snaffle bit and is soft in the mouth and has great breaks! Ember has great ground manners and you can catch her anywhere in the field. We think Ember would make an excellent small hunter pony. In fact, many of her siblings have had very successful careers as hunters on the MHJA and USEF circuits. She would also make a great addition to any lesson program or family pony!
