Sebastian is a 10-year-old Hackney X pony who is cute as a button with a personality to match! Sebastian came to DEFHR a few months ago as a transfer from Equine Welfare Society in Keswick, VA. While at EWS, Sebastian was started under saddle by their professional trainer and was in a consistent program. Needing a shorter-statured trainer to help with developing Sebastian further, EWS reached out to DEFHR to partner and we were happy to transfer Sebastian into our program. Sebastian is now riding w/t/c in and out of the arena and has been started over small fences. Recently, Sebastian had his first junior rider hop aboard and he took great care for a short walk/trot lesson. Sebastian has trailered off-site for trail rides and did not blink an eye as he was asked to hop over small logs and cross streams along the way. On the ground, Sebastian is a ham with a fun-loving personality. He loves face scratches and stands nicely for grooming. He is currently out with our large gelding herd (10+) and gets along well with other horses. Sebastian would be great for an intermediate+ junior in a program or even a petite adult. As a hackney type, Sebastian is small-statured standing at 12.1hh. The adult rider in the photos is 5 foot tall, the junior rider is 4'10.
