Adorable Pony of the Americas Gelding
Marble, an absolutely adorable 13.2 hand Pony of the Americas gelding born in approximately 2012, is now available for adoption through Cross Country Horse Rescue!
Marble is a little guy with a BIG heart! In our time with him, we have found him to be a very intelligent, willing, and kind-hearted animal who wants nothing more than to be loved and trusted, and to have his own person to bond with. Although Marble can be particular about other horses he is turned out with, he behaves very well with others when he is either in-hand or under saddle. We have ridden him on a number of trails, including those with rocky slopes, and he maneuvers them with confidence and ease. He is extraordinarily sure-footed and dependable, and is happy to ride out alone or with companions. He has mastered the obstacle course, and has been desensitized to a large number of objects, situations, and environments. Marble has excellent ground manners, is easy to catch, stands tied, adores being groomed, is good for the farrier, loads well in a trailer, and although he is grade he does qualify for registration as a Pony of the Americas (please visit www.poac.org for details.....registration application will be included with adoption).
We really could go on and on about what a special guy Marble is! The key, however, to a successful relationship with him is confidence and trust....both in yourself as a rider and in Marble as your horse. In our experience Marble will give 110% to a rider who believes in him, but he may not respond equally to a fearful or distrustful rider or handler. Because of this, Marble will be best-suited for an intermediate rider, or a confident advanced beginner. He simply does not respond as positively to a rider who does not believe in him. Horses sense the emotions and feelings of those around them, and Marble needs his person to see him for who he is....an amazing and kind-hearted little horse looking for his perfect partner!
Marble is available for adoption with an adoption contract through Cross Country Horse Rescue, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. His adoption donation fee is $1,300, and EVERY DOLLAR goes directly back into the rescue and rehabilitation of horses in need.
