I owned a pony at one time, sadly I had to give him away because he became too much for me to handle
Thankfully though he went to a very good seasoned horse owner that is working with him on manners. I know that I need a very calm and patient horse one that is going to bring my confidence level up. And when I am better trained I would love to learn how to barrel race. I just want to know if there is any preferences in the breeds, if there is one that is better suited for a beginner over another? Any advice would help me out a lot.
