    A big decision

    After a lot of thought giving into this I've decided that I want to look into the prospect of buying another horse. Yes, another one I know. You know the chip add 'You can't just have one'. But rather then a riding horse I want to get a pony. But with this pony I want to do led showing with as I've always been enthusiastic about lead classes and trying them. In the next couple months we will be getting a float and then I am hoping to be able to take them out once in a while as I have my p plater licence (My driving instructor has a work colleague who is willing to teach my how to safely tow a float) I'm very eager to become independant with my horses and believe this is the year to start. I believe I'm a safe driver and with a kid in the back i'd be taking every precaution. But im rambling now, those are the plans for the future. So now the thing is I want to get a pony, something under 13 hands to do showing with. I was thinking a minature or maybe welsh pony, what is everyones opinions? I was thinking I'd get something young maybe 4, mare if possible that's already led broken but could be a poject on the ground for me. Maybe a paint or pinto as I have a passion for coloured horses/ponies. What should I look for when looking around at ponies for sale? Conformation wise what should I look at? Any tips would be great as even if she does not be used she is still intended as a companion for my other horse as she seems to be getting bored in her paddock. Please respond.

    I would recommend a mini. They are great but I think their nicest feature is the color options, you can get them in practically anything. Right now in my area they have a blue roan pintoloosa stallion and he is the cutest thing I have ever seen.
