Knabstrupper gelding with black and white leopard markings, born in 1996.
Arrived at CARD in November 2014
Pongo comes to us from an established lesson and showing background where he also did some therapeutic riding lessons. A favourite of his former barn, Pongo was a go-to horse for instructors there and is the same here at CARD.
A kind and people-oriented boy, Pongo knows his ‘people’ and is particularly fond of his buddy Scot. He knows that if his paddock mates get too rowdy Scot will come and protect him! It’s quite amusing to watch Pongo quickly veer toward the gate and ‘hide’ behind Scot when the big boys of Paddock 2 would have him feeling a little rattled.
Pongo has moved to Paddock 3, where he has buddied up with DiNiro and Riley. He’ll even share his hay pile with them from time to time! Pongo loves that he can still spend time with Elaine, who was his buddy at his former barn.
Pongo’s broad back and active gaits make him a wonderful partner in both children and adult classes.
