About me


Hi I am Tristan, I am looking for a home as companion.

I am the cutest little pony, with a very sweet but sensitive nature looking for an understanding home where I am only going to be trained using positive training.

I spent the first fifteen years of my life as a stallion lost on Bodmin Moor, never having been touched by a human. I was in a state when the charities helped to rescue me, I had a poor body condition because my teeth were so bad it hurt to eat.

The team train me with food rewards as I have found it difficult to adjust to pressure and release handling. I am now good to catch, groom and have my feet picked out when I know my handler and am in a good routine.

I would really benefit from going to a home where someone has time for me to settle and can do regular positive training sessions to gain my trust and help my confidence grow. Are you the home for me?
