For Sale - "Gus Gus"
14.0 & 3/4 hh Frost Bay POA Gelding
- Hunter/Jumper/Eventer pony for sale. Gus Gus is as sweet as they come, and super talented. He has an easy walk, trot, canter and jump that would make the perfect "next step up" pony for your child or a petite adult.
- He is brave over fences, nice correct mover for dressage, and bold in cross country while still having a safe whoa.
- He jumps banks, ditches, water, logs, and the spookiest fences on first try. He's got a nice tuck and can cover ground when you ask for it but comes right back to set up for a fence. He is not a kick to go ride. He responds nicely to a sophisticated leg but is forgiving for someone who's learning.
- Currently used in lessons for students learning how to jump
- Has shown in jumpers and ribbons in every class!
- He has a rocking horse canter and picks up both leads readily.
- He would do well in showmanship - he trots off with ease and is very attentive to his handler.

- Easy keeper.
- No buck, rear, bolt, or spook.

- Loves hugs!
- Gus Gus is a non-registered POA that could easily be registered with Hardship Papers. He displays all the requirements for registry without lineage. Hummingbird Stables can help with registry if you are interested.
