Melvin - full profile

Introduction

Melvin is now ready to be rehomed as a youngster and has the potential to be backed as a ridden pony or taught to drive. He has been taught all his basic tasks such as catching and leading, grooming, loading and in the warm weather he even had a bath. Melvin is quite sensitive so we would like to find a home for him with a rehomer on a quiet, small yard who has experience with bringing on young ponies and who can spend time building his confidence moving forward with his education to hopefully becoming a ridden pony. Melvin has an inquisitive mind and enjoys interacting with his handler. Please be aware that he will have a maximum rider weight of 8 1/2 to 9 stone.

Temperament

Friendly and gentle youngster

History

Melvin came in to our care in January 2018 following a welfare call. He was found straying on common land and had a body condition score of 0.5.
