Meet Rusty

Rusty is quick on his feet, very solid has good muscle tone. He would make an excellent sporting pony or jumper and has been known to jump over 1 metre. He is a solid pony who would suit an advanced rider, either a small adult or teenager. He is a sweet natured but nervous pony. Rusty needs gentle, consistent handling to gain trust in his handler. He would do well in a situation where he is treated as a pet, not just a riding mount. Once he knows you he loves a cuddle and a scratch on the head. Initially he will be difficult to catch, but once caught he is easy to lead, lunge and brush etc, although he still gets nervous about being touched around the hindquarters. Rusty is not suitable for a home with small children as he has been known to show jealous behaviour towards them. Rusty is available for $550.
