Are you looking for that perfect first pony for your child to make memories to last a lifetime? Look no further! Buttercup aka "Butter" is an 11 hand 11 year old pinto mare who is the best first pony for leadline, walk-trot, and learning to canter! She has local and rated show miles in leadline, walk-trot and pleasure. Jumping doesn't seem to be her thing (although if you had a small enough adult she might be able to learn the job-we don't know). She's not mareish, easy to work around, and the kids just love to handle her-she's a barn favorite and a good turnout buddy who can go out with mares or geldings. She's brought along multiple kids over the years and is very sadly outgrown. We hope she brings as much joy to the next family as she did to ours. $6,000 to buy, $3,000 to lease. Serious adult inquiries only to Christine at 540-229-2995
