MeggPottr, you seem to have a lot of drive and heart, but I don't see that you have a lot of money. Even though you heart goes out to this pony--MY heart goes out to the Husky on a chain across the street, well fed, played with, but WTFudge?, are they doing, when they could keep her inside the house, like my dogs are--I would suggest you look for a horse that is WORTH your time as a project. Don't be fooled by his size, he can STILL pack quite a wollup if he kicks you while you are training. We don't HAVE to learn every lesson that hard way, you know, and our horse doesn't have to kick us or bite us or throw us to make us feel like good trainers.
There are so many unfinished horses further along than this one with owners that are looking at their finances are ready to sell. Please look for one of those that you can train and ride in your favorite discipline. I don't look at you as a trainer in her early 20's, who doesn't know anything, just one that needs a few words of wisdom about how to spend your training time. =D
