    Possible pony buy?

    How is her confo?
    Here is her add:: http://horsetopia.horse-for-sale.org...fieds/ad276335, and here is the info she sent:: Eclypse sounds alsmost perfect for what you want. With a few things that might concern me. She is still yougn just turned 2. And though she is riding wonderfully I would worry about putting a small child on her unattended right away. I would pony them at first till they got used to each other.Not because I think she would do anytihng wrong just she is young and I am not sure how much expereince you have had with young horses. She was born here and aside from crawling under the fence ( which was hotwire) when she was little she has NEVER done anythign wrong. She needs a little more training as she just turned two and we didnt get on her untill she was 2 ( March 15th ) SHe will walk trot and canter but is slow to turn just yet she will with a bit of pulling but we havent refined her bending and flexing yet. So I would still consider her green. If you were willing to put about a week into her to be sure she was to the point in her training you wanted I am sure she would he fine. I have put my 4 year old son on her but have only ponied him around and never actually cut her loose.I just can not do it myself due to my injury and I have had a friend coming on the weekends to work with her. Which we were not able to do this weekend due to easter. I just know what potential she has and I feel horrible seeing her standing in the pasture not getting the extra attention she deserves. Her mother I have owned for 10 years and I have never ridden or worked with a better horse and her half sister was trail broke and riding perfectly after only a week of everyday work. But like I said she is young and I know what she will do for in this case I perfer to call her green broke. If you are willing to put a bit of time inot her before letting the kids actually ride her by them selves I am sure it would be perfect. If you would like to come and see her you are more then welcome. Out of her. Her coggin expire next week but I have an appointment with the vet thursday. It will take about a week or so to get them back in once they are done. If you would like to come and see her just let me know and I will work with you as much as I can. Thank you for your interest, Melanie

    With a little work, she sounds like she could work out.
    Would I be to big to get on her to work with? I'm 5'3, almost 5'4 and a little under 120
    Here's her!

    I couldn't load the ad, but I wouldn't get her. Mainly for one reason. She has had someone on her back before she was 2! That could lead to serious problems when she gets older.
    I would look for an older pony that already has some miles under his belt

    Ditto. Not only has she done too much way too early, but those pictures don't inspire the most confidence in the training she's recieved, either.

    She looks grade. How big is she? What is she going for? (ad won't load for me either) If it's anything more than a couple of hundred I'd say you could easily pick up a nicer looking grade pony at many auctions for less.

    I'd give it a big pass. Th epony looks like a yearling in the pictures. It's easy to ride a yearling - they don't have the muscle to fight back.

    I'd pass. A two year old being ridden = BAD!
    I'm sure they're will be something out there for you.

    From the sounds of it, she's been ridden for a while
