Monty is a rescued hackney pony I've had for not quite 2 months. Was told he was 3 but based on teeth believe him to only be a 2 year old (still has ALL his baby teeth) He is very greenbroke to ride but I have elected to stay off of him until next spring after finding out he was still so young. He is still underweight an needs a bit of conditioning, though he is gaining all the time (to see what we started with see this thread: Monty's Road to Recovery)
No need to bite your tongue, I'm still learning how to pick out conformation faults and you all having a go at my horses helps me immensely since I see them day in and day out!
Also, any suggestions of a discipline for him when the time comes? I was thinking of bringing in a good hunter pony trainer, but I know hackneys are popular in youth saddleseat. Thoughts?
