“Freckles” (9 yr. old – 13 Hands) is a very special pony that has been trail ridden all of his life – as well as – being a 4-H show pony!   He is absolutely beautiful – with his VERY thick tail that touches the ground, and his thick pretty mane!  He is also so very cute!  With his spots and his funny, curious, & loving personality!  

Freckles is so easy to do all things with!  He walks on the trailer with no hesitation – easy to catch – no stall issues – runs great with other horses – stands to mount – and mounts from mtg. block or whatever!  He loves his baths! He has wonderful ground manners!  Leads the very best!   He stops when you stop – stands still and waits.  He stops on voice command when riding and is an extraordinary trail horse!   Freckles will cross anything without hesitation!  He is non-spook, traffic broke (we live on 4-lane highway with semi’s – log/gravel trucks – motorcycles – sirens – a very busy highway!!)  He is not afraid of barking dogs, tractor, manure spreader, zero turn mower, weed eaters, chain saws, and sound of guns being fired.

We have a practice range over the hill at a neighbor’s home and anytime they are out there shooting, we ride over there and stand and watch.  Freckles is really great with being non-spook.   He is non-gaited.  Has a very smooth slow easy walk and a smooth easy trot.   When out trail riding, you can stop and stand for however long you want!!  Creeks, ditches, wildlife, rough trails is no problem!!  He is a horse that steps slowly and very cautiously in difficult areas!  He is so very patient!   He is not one to paw whether standing and waiting or being tied.   Freckles has been on camping trips and is very good with being tied to whatever is available!  He has won a lot of top three awards at the 4-H shows – and is wonderful for children!

Freckles is SO VERY AFFECTIONATE!  He is very curious with nosing into everything – wanting to know what you are doing —–follows you around like a puppy – and is just the sweetest!   He will be awesome for a young rider or for a small adult who enjoys trail riding and perhaps showing at the local shows!
