PLEASE VIEW UNDER SADDLE VIDEOS BELOW

Harmony is a 3-year-old Bay Canadian/Welsh cross pony mare.   She is sensible and sound, and is the type who greets you at the gate ready to do something.   She has 3-quality, balanced, adjustable gaits and has potential for just about any discipline (or a variety).   She has a very mature mind for her age and is not herd bound, she is not at all like riding a 3 year old.

Harmony has a solid foundation under saddle and is ready to carry on with the direction of your choice.  She has a nice balanced walk/trot/lope in the arena and knows her leads and transitions.   She has a nice snaffle mouth and knows how to bend and move off leg.   Harmony knows how to leg yield, side pass, etc. and has a nice start to her spin.   She is young and will ‘look’ at the odd thing, but is typically not a spooky horse.   I would describe Harmony as a little bit more of a ‘push’ ride as opposed to a ‘hold back’ ride, though she moves forward willingly as well.

Harmony has not offered to buck, bolt or rear under saddle and right from the first ride she felt like a safe mount.  She has been ridden an average of 2-3 times per week since she was started in January.

Recently Harmony has also been out trail riding.   She is brave, confident and relaxed.   She has a good forward walk and easily keeps up with bigger horses.   She is comfortable being ponied from another horse and is also happy being ridden and ponying another horse.  Harmony rides out with dogs no problem and is really just a nice horse to ride.  She lunges well walk/trot/canter and is easy and respectful to handle on the ground.  She ties, loads, trailers and trims with ease.   No vices. Harmony has no known injuries or ailments, has good conformation and legs, and excellent feet.  She is up to date on de-worming, 5-way vaccines, and hoof trims.

I think she would be suitable as a ‘2nd pony’ for a child in a program now and has the right type of temperament to be ridden by more children as she gains maturity and experience.   Or, she is also big enough for a smaller adult to ride and enjoy.

Harmony is located in Prince George, BC.  local delivery available and we can help arrange transport for further distances.  Price:  $6500 CAD.  For more information on this special Pony, please contact Mira at soulridgefarm@gmail.com
