Being so tiny at birth, Fern has remained very small; she actually looks like a miniature horse, with everything perfectly proportioned. It was a problem when the time came for backing her as we needed competent light weight riders. She was perfect from the day she had a saddle on, however. Because she is so small (no more than 13hh), she can go months at a time without being ridden, if we don’t have small enough riders around. Yet she is so calm and well behaved. She really enjoys going out and if anything worries her she just has a good look at it but very rarely reacts to anything. She is a little pocket rocket though, and can give the bigger horses a run for their money. It is best to have her in front when planning a canter or she will do her best to wiggle her way through to be in the lead! She will happily take up to around 60 kilos, without even breaking into a sweat, so has become very popular with the lighter weight ladies!
