2007 Paint cross gelding
Wonder is a 12 year old, 14 hh Paint gelding from NEER North in Massachusetts. He was rescued from a Missouri killpen several years ago and was surrendered to NEER North this past summer.
Wonder can be a bit nervous at times, but clearly had some good work in his past as he cross ties, stands quietly for grooming and the farrier, and connects nicely with a handler in the round pen and on a lead line. His riding history was unknown at the time, so we started Wonder back in work slowly. We started by working on lungeing, ropework, ponying on the trails, and long lining. Once he had taken all of that in stride, we decided to climb aboard. Wonder is now walk, trot, and beginning to canter in the arena. He has also started going out on the trails with a friend for company and so far has been very sensible. This adorable pony has lovely gaits and a sweet, sensible temperament. We look forward to continuing our work with Wonder, and finding great home for him in the near future.
