Quarter ‘type’ pony 12.1 HH 14yrs. Bay Mare

Rides and Drives

If you are looking for that all around family pony, Cocoa is waiting for you to take her home. 

She’d be the perfect ‘early’ Christmas or holiday gift for that special family member.


The ‘good’

‘Cocoa’ is the perfect ‘family’ pet/ equine.

  • She has been ridden by kids and adults. Cocoa has very nice ground manners, is good for the shoer, and LOVES to be groomed and fussed over!
  • She has excellent conformation, and would make a nice halter/ showmanship pony for adults or kids. Cocoa would make a superior lead-line, walk/trot pony!  Somewhere in her background she has some excellent training- she frames up and bends when worked. She has a soft and responsive mouth.  She has a great WHOA!
  • Cocoa is currently in professional training for driving. She has taken to training very nicely.   She stands to be hitched.
  • She clips & bathes easily. No vices.  Gets along with a herd.


The ‘Bad’


  • Cocoa hasn’t been used much in the past couple of years, so she needs conditioning- she’s out of shape!
  • Cocoa is a SMART PONY, and has ‘pony ‘tude’, so will try to take advantage of situations.
  • Cocoa’s driving training needs to continue. She isn’t a ‘finished’ pony, but she’s started well.
  • Cocoa lacks ‘incentive’ to move forward with anything but a walk or slow trot, and needs to be encouraged.


The ‘Ugly’

  • Cocoa needs special shoeing, as somewhere in her life she has been foundered. She goes ‘serviceably sound’ in regular shoes with hard pads.
  • Whomever purchases her needs to understand that she needs to be shod regularly to stay sound.


Cocoa is located in Lancaster, CA
