I think I'll also point out the obvious... be thankful you have a pony to begin with. Lots of girls want a pony and can't have one.
Yes I completely agree with you on saying be thankful I have a pony in the first place, I meant to put it on my thread, but your suggestion is what I've been doing the past couple of days, I am training him to become bombproof and easy and steady for a little child who will probably have him next, being on 13hh and a welsh sec b he is fine, and he would make a fabulous little show pony, he has an amazing jump on him too, but doesnt particulary enjoy it and often stops, but on a good day he has done 3ft. Thankyou for your suggestion and I will carry on doing it :)
