Dales Ponies Currently for Sale

Update 9/10/19:  In case people look here for Dales Ponies available in the area, the Northwest Therapeutic Riding Center has a very nice, well trained 12 year old Dales Gelding for sale.  He has slightly special needs.  He had an episode of tying up after being vaccinated a year and a half ago, and has had elevated muscle enzymes.  Being a breeder of this incredible breed, I took an interest and had him tested first for PSSM1.  He was negative for that.  Then I had EquiSeq include him in a draft horse study testing for all known genetic variants of PSSM2, including ones not available commercially to the public.  He tested negative for PSSM2 but does carry one copy of the gene p5, which is recessive.  Horses need two copies of this gene in order to be symptomatic.  Because of the episode of tying up, I think he should be treated as if he has PSSM despite the negative tests.  This basically means regular exercise and low sugar diet.  Below is the ad:

RedPrairie Freedom is a 14.1 hand, 2007 Dales Pony gelding.  “Salvador”, “Sal”, is extremely versatile and easy to get along with. He has training in dressage, jumping, obstacles, trail and working equitation.  He has also participated in a lesson program.

Wonderful temperament, great feet, stands well for farrier, loads, bathes and ties and has no vices. Dales ponies are a critically endangered breed and are known as “The Great All Rounder” in its native England. They are comfortable to ride, spirited yet docile, and exceptionally trainable. They are delightful partners. Sal has PSSM which is managed by diet and exercise.  Asking $5000 will consider offers.
