This morning I picked up a 2y.o. Welsh x Hanovarian sport pony prospect. My plan is to train her this summer and show her a bit both in hand and under saddle once she is ready. I think she will make a very nice hunter or pony club mount. She is registered half Welsh and I have the paperwork partially filled out to apply for her North American Sport Pony Association registration.
As a newbie to the sport pony world, I had a few questions.
Any other adults out there ride or show sport ponies? If so, what do you like about them?
Is it worth going through the paperwork and inspection process to get a Sport Pony Registration? What is the value (aside from personal satisfaction) in doing so?
