Axle is the perfect kids pony. Anyone can ride this guy, anytime, anywhere…. he is safe, safe, safe. He rides western, English, jumps, and even drives. Mostly shown in the hunter/jumper ring, but has also been shown but a D level pony clubber and has shown all around in 4h very successfully. Very easy keeper, barefoot, low maintenance. This guy loads in any trailer, anytime, anywhere, stands for vet and farrier, cross ties, ground ties, etc. Does not need a strict routine, he can sit all winter and go right back to work in the spring. Only vice is he is a bit on the lazy side. He needs a bit of an assertive rider, timid kids can easily ride him, but the more assertive kids will get a much fancier ride. He has schooled up to 3ft fences but is currently showing mostly in the 2fts. He does not have auto changes yet but he is starting to figure them out and has a very easy simple change. Has been ridden by a 5 year old first timer w/t on his own. Student that has been showing him all year is an advanced beginner that’s not always super confident. I have additional pictures and videos available upon request.
