His size makes him a perfect fit for kids; his mild temperament makes him extremely suitable for work in the round pen with our youngest and beginner students. In the big arena he can be a bit difficult and he will then teach his rider a lot about: taking charge; staying focussed; thinking ahead and determination!
He does get a little grouchy during the grooming/saddling process and tries to nip at anyone within range. This unwanted behavior is kept under control with a bag of hay and a short lead rope, as well as a watchful eye of the intructor and clear instructions to the students.
Prince is mostly loved by all the young students and dreaded by the older ones, because he doesn't make things easy and challenges them every step of the way (which of course makes him the best teacher of all)!
