Sophie is a 13 year old Welsh x Quarter Pony mare who stands 13.3hh. She is broke to ride and has been ridden down the road, through the park, arena’s, etc. She has jumped 3’3” courses in Kamloops in the past, has her basic Dressage training and is learning to neck rein.
While she is very well trained, she was ridden quite hard in the past and has developed some mild arthritis because of it. She is suitable for light riding at this time, but she does well on Recovery and was fine going around Campbell Valley Park. She still has some spunk to her and would very much enjoy getting out on the trails or for some light pleasure work in the ring, but no jumping. She is not suitable for kids as she does have some pony-tude, so she would be best suited to an intermediate level rider.
NOTE: She was adopted July 12 direct from her previous owners by a friend of the rescue. Fortunately they quickly realized she is not suitable for jumping, which is what they were looking for. Big thanks to them for loving and caring for her for the past two months until she could come back to the rescue.
