Born 2011, 12.2hh, Dartmoor Hill Pony, Grey, Gelding.
Smiler came into the Centre as part of our Dartmoor Hill Pony Project in 2016, along with four other ponies. He was completely wild and spent a lot of time adjusting to being handled and getting to know the staff at the Centre. After his ground work training he underwent the assessment process to be backed, unfortunately due to behavioural reasons he was unable to complete this process.
He is good to do in all ways, he will need daily handling including catching and picking his feet out as he can revert to being ‘feral’ if left to his own devices. Would live in or out all year round and will turn out with both mares and geldings.
