14.2hh 8yo flaxen liver chestnut Welsh Sec D with four white socks. Gelding Synod Apollo x Parvadean Reload. Ideal project for an experienced home.
Benson is a very attractive, flashy stamp. Shown very successfully as a youngster as a Section C. Reclassified as a Section D July 2020.
He has a great character and is a sweet, friendly chap who requires firm and consistent handling. Benson respects boundaries and backs down very quickly from confrontation but he does need those boundaries to be set in order to respect them. He is not at all nasty, but he could be bolshy if allowed to be.
Under saddle Benson has mostly been a leisure or childs pony and is very green in the school. He moves very well and has shown quality over a fence. He has been cross country schooling, hacking and ridden in open fields and is always in a snaffle. Benson is great in traffic.
Benson can throw a buck in protest if asked to do something he doesn’t want but he will take correction and I am sure that he will come on quickly with the right rider. Benson requires a confident, competent and forward thinking rider to progress his education and turn him into the quality, fun pony he is crying out to be!
Benson passed a vetting in August 2020 where sarcoids were noted. There are 3 small ones right up inside his inner thigh that are not causing an issue and are best left alone.
