I have seen that people often teach their old show ponies that they have outgrown to drive.
Is this a good idea in your opinion? I think it is great.
I have a 14.2 hand Quarter Pony with a very forward attitude, she is good at using her neck even in an English class or Western class.
Next year I may be getting a bigger horse to start jumping in shows. I jump my pony all the time at home, but I can't show her in anything besides cross rails and I am ready to move up a level.
I refuse to sell or trade her though and I will still show her just as often, but mostly in gaming and more fun classes.
I was wondering what you guys think a about teaching her to drive. Right now she competes in leadline, costume, gaming, W/J Western, and Beginner or W/T English Classes including equitation and cross rails.
Just because she is so small for me I do not move up to a canter/lope this show season.
If somebody tells me how to upload a picture on here, I will do so or you could search her as "A Penny's True Value".
Thank you guys!
