Due to his very good temperament, he can be ridden by young children both on and off his lead or reins. This means that he is patient, calm and would be comfortable around children of all ages.

Harley shares his home and lives with a range of various animals including dogs, goats, sheep, pigs, reindeer, ducks and hens. He also lives among a string (which is the collective noun for ponies) of 19 ponies. This means that he will be happy to work with a variety of different animals whilst on set.

True to his breed, Harley has a high level of intelligence meaning he has a varied skill set. He has mastered and can perform incredibly well a range of different skills and commands.

Horse Acting/Modelling Experience

Harley has had a lot of experience being in outdoor pony shows, pony displays and pony performances. He has also worked inside onstage and in halls in front of large crowds.

This means that he would be comfortable working in an incredibly busy environment with lots of new people, other ponies and lots of loud sounds. Also, he is used to travelling to each show, therefore, would be happy to work in different locations.
