Hart's Skip For Joy (Skipper) is a five year old bay pinto chincoteague pony. He is a direct descendant of Misty of Chincoteague, the palomino pinto mare that Marguerite Henry owned and wrote her book "Misty of Chincoteague" on. Skipper was born on our farm and both his sire and dam are on the premises. I put about 15 rides on him when he was a three year old and then he had a year off because I was away on an internship, I am planning on continuing his training until he is sold. Being that he has only had about 15 rides he is still pretty green and needs someone who knows how to train horses and will be patient with him as he can be a bit skittish at times. I think he will make a nice youth pony (probably not a kid pony but more of an experienced youth) or a good pony for a smaller adult as he is very smart and athletic. He is registered with the National Chincoteague Pony Association and is eligible to be registered for the pinto association. I have taken him to shows where he has competed in liberty, halter, in-hand jumping, in-hand trail, showmanship, and 4-h training levels 2 & 3. He lungs very well, ties, knows showmanship, round pens, wears the saddle and bridle, and ground drives. He is easy to handle on the ground and stands well for the vet, farrier, and for clipping. He is a sweetheart and I love him a lot but I am in college and don't have a lot of time for him. I would love to find him a show home where he can be used to his maximum potential and will be picky as to who he will be sold to.
