Taffy ~ 2005 Welsh cross pony gelding ~ $2800
Taffy is a 2005 Welsh cross gelding and as cute as can be. Bay with an adorable face, 13.1 hh, great conformation, sound and barefoot. Up to date on body work, deworming, teeth floating. in full work so ready for you to come try out! Great mover, very unspooky under saddle, excellent on the trail, and loves to jump. Has been shown in a few gymkhanas and has a lot of talent for them. My son, who is a very timid rider, won a daily high point on him and cantered on him for the first time. Never seems to get hot, no matter how we push him. He's not only been competitive, he has also done birthday parties with toddlers, and he's an experienced beginner thru advanced lesson horse. Great for lunge line lessons. Extremely gentle on the ground. Lots of new and older videos below. ONLY selling due to a huge change in our financial situation.

Taffy is apparently done with kids. That is why I have lowered his price. Recently when people have some to see him for possible purchase, he has been cranky and hard to steer when ridden independently by younger kids. He LOVES to be told to move out and go fast, and he does not like timid riders who hang on the reins and aren't aggressive with him. He is very obedient to ME when doing lessons and birthday parties with little kids on him, and very obedient to advanced riders who excite him and get him moving, but I guess he's had it with timid younger kids riding him on their own. Luckily at 13.1 hh he's big enough for teenagers and smaller adults. He wants to chase cows and run at gymkhanas and swim in the lake!
