Our handsome Silvo was bought in good faith in July 2017 as a talented jumping pony (he was competing 1.10m) for my 12 year old daughter, but shortly after purchase it was discovered he has a sacroiliac joint condition. Bone scans have shown this. Sadly he now needs a new home as a companion (price would be lowered if he went to a companion home) or hacking pony – he is fully sound – BUT if he was to undergo a personalized treatment programme of physio he could reach his full potential and return to his previous level of work, or higher. For this an experienced very confident rider would be required to bring him back to work slowly with an intensive physiotherapy and ridden program of around 6-8 months, therefore he could also be a project. A sample program of work can be provided. I just don’t have the time to take this on.
Silvo is easy to handle, does not bite or kick and loads easily. He is also good with the farrier. He currently lives out in a small herd but he is better suited to living with only one or two others as he can be dominant. He can live in or out. He is a sensitive, but under-confident pony who has responded incredibly to ‘join up’ and liberty training with my daughter, as once he trusts someone, he bonds with them quickly and gives his heart to them. They have a very strong connection and it will be a very sad sale so home is more important than price. Lunge work, join up and ridden, flat and jump work videos available on request. He is a very clever chap who is quick to learn so no novices or timewasters please.
Up to date with vaccinations / worming / teeth. Currently unshod due to being turned away on field rest for last three months.
£1500 open to offers.Thank you.
