A wooden pony hand-painted in dappled shades of grey, the inside of the mouth red, and the hooves, eyes and nostrils in black. She wears (we say she, though there is no obvious indication!), a faux leather saddle and harness, and has a long white blond mane of soft hair and tail, made of real horsehair.  She stands on an oak base with original wooden wheels, and has a long curved iron support, terminating in a turned wooden handle.

A beautiful and traditional toy, that would look lovely in a nursery, and would be ideal for any equestrian loving child.
