Ella is a beautiful 3rd Generation Australian Pony bred by the very successful Koora-Lyn stud over in NSW. She has competed successfully at Prelim-Novice level and started Elementary before I had a baby in 2017. She is registered with EA (graded Novice) and APSB.
She knows all the elementary movements and jumps comfortably 45 cm and has been jumped up to 65 cm both show jumping and cross country. She is good to float, go to the beach and trail ride on her own or with other horses.
She has primarily been ridden by adults and is safe and quiet. Definitely way more woah than go. For the first 5-6 months of this year she was ridden by a 12 year old girl who had learnt to ride at a riding school and she never put a foot wrong both at home, on the trail, beach and at the APSB stud show. Her feet and teeth have always been done regularly and she also gets body work done every 6-8 weeks.
She’s suitable for a small adult, teen or as a second ridden kids pony for a confident child.
The only issue with this beautiful girl is that she has had two mild bouts of laminitis over the last 5 years. She has been x-rayed and there were no changes in her feet. She has recently tested positive for equine metabolic syndrome but negative for cushings. For those not familiar with EMS this just means that her metabolism doesn’t work as well as it should and therefore she struggles to maintain a healthy weight and unfortunately overweight ponies are prone to laminitis. She just needs very careful weight management with no or very controlled grazing (1-2 hours max a day) and regular exercise. She is ideally suited to a property that has a track set up or a dry lot/sacrifice area that has no grass and she is fed hay 24/7. Otherwise with daily work, full time stabling is also an option – she is currently stabled full time and is very easy to look after.
Because of this it is really important she goes to the right home. She is only being sold as we are moving overseas and we can’t afford to take both horses with us. I have had her for 8 years now and it is going to be very hard to part with her. She is in work a couple of days a week at the moment and will come with her saddle, bridle, rugs and most of her other gear.
