Ben arrived at HorseWorld in 2001 after being left at a farm when the owners moved house. He was backed at HorseWorld and has spent time out on loan homes but has been returned several times when outgrown.
Ben has a lovely sweet nature and is a brilliant lead rein pony including ride and lead. However ridden off lead rein he gets a bit carried away so is not suitable for novices. He is easy to care for and is great with the farrier etc. He does have sweet itch but is happy to wear a rug and receive TLC for this.
As Ben is a native breed he is still a hardy soul even though he is getting older so can live out 24/7 and will need his grazing restricted. He is happy to be left alone for a short period of time in a stable so may make a good companion to another ridden pony.
