7 & 10.Very nice, practical-looking sort of pony. Looks a bit like Flash in some ways How old are your kids?
The mouthpiece was a Waterford, and he felt v light in my hands, that’s the first thing being changed. All other videos I’ve seen of him with kids riding him he was in a snaffle. He had been out hunting and they hadn’t changed it back.He looks sweet, though I'm puzzled why such a gentle well behaved pony would be wearing a martingale and a bubble bit. But perhaps that's just me!
I thought this as well. The tack isn't necessarily and reflection of the behaviour of the pony though. Just to clarify @HaloHoney that you have tried him in a snaffle and not just the Waterford? As he has been out hunting, I would definitely want to test the brakes on a group canter in the field, just to make sure that they are there.He looks sweet, though I'm puzzled why such a gentle well behaved pony would be wearing a martingale and a bubble bit.

Well that's great newsHe passed a 5-stage vetting with flying colours. Had a really good look at his tail/mane- his crest feels smooth and not at all scarred as you get with sweet itch. Tail was long and full, right from the top. Vet said “I think he might be a bit of a bargain.” Vet also said his ground manners are exemplary.
Yes, changed to snaffle and he was fine in that too.
Loaded like a pro, and travelled really well.
