About Jewel

Jewel arrived at the rescue in March 2006 along with eleven other Welsh Mountain Ponies. Her former owner had purchased a stallion and two mares and turned them out on pasture where he let them breed and then let the offspring inbreed for several years. He did not handle any of the horses, so they were living as wild horses. When the owner could no longer care for them, Bluebonnet took them into the rescue and set about taming them. Jewel came around slowly and began the search for her forever home. She met him at the 2008 Bluebonnet Horse Expo and went home a few days later. Her returned her in 2017 because she wasn’t getting along with his new horses.

Jewel went to a trainer after being returned and was started under saddle.  She then attended the 2017 Bluebonnet Horse Expo and was adopted by someone who plans to turn her into a riding pony for her son. Unfortunately, Jewel did not work out and was returned in the summer of 2018.


Before coming to Bluebonnet, Jewel lived as a feral/wild pony.  She was not handled until she came to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Jewel has no known health or lameness problems.

Evaluation and Training

When Jewel returned from her adopter in the spring of 2017, she was very nervous.  We sent her to a trainer for some ground work. She came around quickly and he, with the help of his son, started her under saddle. 

Jewel is still green and needs a lot of work to turn into a good kids’ pony.  She has only been ridden a handful of times in the past year and will need someone who can bring her back into work and get her going again. 

Jewel is a very fancy looking pony and could be a stunning show pony for the right home.  She is very green, so she’s not for a novice rider, but she would be a nice show or pleasure pony for an intermediate rider who rides with a trainer.
