She trail drives, goes through water and is good in traffic. She would make a terrific CDE pony, and is perfect for the new small pony division as she is top of the line small. She has very nice extension open and ground covering and has a great mind. Located in Northeast Florida."  Also ASPR eligible.  Owner contact: Alicia Slocumb at
