First, IF everything goes well, and I get a nice healthy baby, my mare and the baby will spend the summer being lazy, perhaps if the foal is nice I will take them to a judge to see what they think of the foal.
Then my foal and my mare will spend their time in a 25 acre pasture, I don't know the term, but they will be outside 24/7, but have a barn to go into whenever they want.
If my mare get's a colt, it will be weened at 7 months. If she get a filly, it will be weened a little bit later.
It will spend it's first 2,5 years in the 25 acre pasture with younger and older horses.
When it is three years old, there is something that is called "Treårs test" here in Sweden, and it's a test for three year old ponies. You show the pony under saddle, in walk, trot and canter. There is loose jumping and you show the pony without rider too. You get scores on everything.
Then we have, "kvalitetsbedömning" for four year old ponies. It's basically the same as "Treårs test", but a little bit more advanced.
Then we have "Ungponnychampionat" for five and six year old ponies. There you show your pony, dressage - jumping, whatever you want to. If you choose dressage, you show the pony in a dressage test.
This is the test for five year old ponies.
Then I will continue the dressage training.
IF it will be big enough for me to ride, if it gets to be 14.1 or bigger, I will only ride it. If it will be smaller, then I will compete in driving classes.
I have two small rider that has offered to ride the pony if it will be too small for me.
