Horses and showing them at a certain level is expensive, but it does not make sense to invest too much in something your child may outgrow quickly and it makes even less sense to buy a “cheaper” pony that often times ends up being too green or not quite what you’d been hoping for. In an effort to balance the scales, we breed, raise, train and then offer our ponies for lease.
Below you’ll find descriptions and links to each pony’s info and availability.
Practical Magic – Lease or Sale
Extremely fancy 13.2hh medium pony mare by the famous hunter pony sire Greystone Ian McVai. “Pearl” is a big bodied 13 year o7ld mare who is an old pro going around the ring, whether equitation or medium pony hunters. She is an exquisite mover with an auto lead change and many tri-colors under her belt. She was 7th overall in the Green Medium Pony Hunter section of Pony Finals in KY with a 9 year old in the irons.
Just Desserts – Lease Only
“Jazz” is a phenomenal medium pony with a string of championships and blue ribbons from the local ss/children’s pony division all the way up to HITS Saugerties, The Hampton Classic and beyond. She’s a 15 year old 13.2hh mare with striking looks and classy attitude. She is a very down to earth pony that knows her job and takes care of her rider no matter the circumstances. There is no question that this girl will perform no matter where you go or what you’re doing.
Wisewoods Tigerlily – Lease or Sale
“Zoey” is a beautiful and easygoing petite large pony mare. She loves a soft ride with a kid that is proud of her and what they can do together. She’s 9 years old and just a hair over 14.1 with shoes, a delicate look and absolutely the hack winner. She would make a wonderful partner for that little one looking to storm the short stirrup and then move in to the local ponies like gangbusters.
Compewter Power – Lease Only
“Pewter” is a 10 year old grey large pony gelding by Empire’s Power. He is everything you could wish for in a pony for your child, whether they are showing on the local level or wish to step up to Pony Finals. He is easy-going, good natured, never looks at a fence, has auto changes and is always the patron saint and mascot of any farm he is lucky enough to be a part of. I can never hear too many great things about this pony and so far I’ve been lucky enough to hear nothing but wonderful!
Blue Moon’s Glass Slipper – Lease Only
“Tiffany” is the be all and end all of the “petite” large children’s pony. She’s 25 years old, 14.0hh, auto everything, some maintenance, but nothing over the top. She can easily do the walk/trot and even still rise to the occasion of winning all of the large children’s pony classes at shows like The Hampton Classic and HITS Saugerties as well as earning VHSA Large Children’s Pony Hunter End of Year Award in 2016. This pony can and will take care of any child you put on her and make them look like a world class athlete without all of the worry. If you are looking for something to help with confidence or to simply give your child a year to really learn, this is your pony and she’s worth every penny.
