Darby (Darby the Wonder Pony) is an 16-year old 13.3 hand Connemara-Welsh cross. He is Carlie's pony but she has outgrown him so she shares him for leasing and lessons. Gigi half-leases Darby. Darby is an independent spirit (aka-stubborn). He is cute, comfortable and fun to ride for the independent rider. He loves jumping and made his showing debut in March 2008. He has been shown in leadline, walk/trot, pony and jr. pleasure, over x-rails, pre-childrens hunter and eq, hunter paces, eventing- dressage, stadium and cross country and games. Darby has competed in regional and National pony club games for the past two years and loves it. Darby won year end awards in many categories and organizations including pony of the year for SVPC in 2011. Darby is a good sport about most things and even has been in light parades, 4th of july parades and has even dressed up several years to go trick-or–treating. He has no idea of his small size and will often be found challenging the larger horses such as Nemo in the pasture.
