Eventing Nation’s very own Leslie Wylie just traversed 1020 km across the wild Mongolian steppe riding over 20 semi-feral Mongolian ponies, many of which we’d like her to bring home with her (she always seemed to pick the cutest ones!).

The ponies featured in this week’s spotlight are not Mongolian but they are super duper cute (and also trained and domesticated)!

2012 Ard Celtic Art Mare

Knockmas Ennisfree “Ennis” is an exceptionally bred 14’1” Connemara mare by Ard Celtic Art, who competed through intermediate/CCI** eventing and 4th level dressage. She has a willing attitude and a sweet personality. Her basic training has her easily riding WTC and jumping up to 2’3”, all in a snaffle, with loads of potential to do more.

Trained by a professional, she has been ridden by both adults and juniors, and is currently continuing her training with a teen. She has competed in two horse trials and one CT, several small open shows, and recently attended a week long 4-H camp with a 12 year old girl. This mare can go any direction from hunter/jumper to eventing to fox hunting. She will continue in training and be shown at different venues until the perfect fit is found.

No vices, wonderful ground manners, easy keeper, clips, loads, ties, etc. Ennis is an “in your pocket” pony who needs her own person, great for a junior or an adult. She gets along well in a herd and lives out 24/7 and has good stall manners. Current on everything, barefoot and sound, good with vet and farrier. Green but willing, ready to please, this pony will make a phenomenal partner for the person willing to put in the time. Located in North Carolina.
