Has been ridden occasionally by an experienced junior rider while in our barn. He is shown with no prep no lunging.

Romeo is an 11 year old 14.2 hand gelding. He has had the same owner and been in professional training since he was 4 and this pony has done it all. Quiet but sensitive, perfect amount of whoa and go. Has packed kids through their first shows in the hunter ring but will perk up and clean up in the jumper ring with an experienced rider. He has jumped up to 3’6″ and would be happy coursing 2’6″-3′. Romeo has tons of show miles and is the same horse at home or away. He did his first eventing trial last month and placed 1st in Elementary. He has done endurance racing and always placed in the top 5 in the 30mile divisions. Heart of gold and in your pocket. Trailers, ties, quiet enough for young kids to handle on the ground but under saddle would do best with a child that has enough miles to be fairly balanced. He does what he is asked so if a rider is wobbly or gripping for life he will slightly react (he is not dead to the leg). Super soft in the bridle. Ha always been very sound with no maintenance, super easy keeper.  Currently being used in a lesson program at an eventing barn and they are loving him! Owner never imagined that they would put this pony up for sale but he has a lot of years left in him and her children have outgrown showing him. Seller has the right to select buyer based on best match for the pony. $15,000
