Charlie

14hh, 18+ year-old gelding.

(NOT CURRENTLY FOR REHOMING)

Handsome boy Charlie has, unfortunately, been in rescues most of his life after having a bad start to life.

Charlie began his life going from a completely unhandled youngster, to into his first home only to end up getting himself impaled on a fence out of fear during his first couple of days. This resulted in him having to be rescued from the fence by vets and firefighters and of course the whole experience caused severe psychological scarring before he was even 2 years old!

Charlies training has been a long, slow process to try and get him to trust again but luckily it has not been in vain as he has overcome many of his fears and developed quite the bond with the Wolfwood team. Now that his trust and confidence have soared we figured it was about time to try and further his education.

In late spring ’19 we began the process of backing Charlie and have been pleasantly surprised with his progress. Work with Charlie will be ongoing for some time but we hold out hope that someday he will be a lovely ridden pony for an experienced rider.

In the meantime, it is a pleasure to have such a sweet natured, cuddly pony with us and we look forward to seeing him progress in the future.
