Weekend of 9/28, my friend, her husband and I are going to the Roman Nose trail ride in Watonga Ok. Welcome to the Roman Nose Hills Trail Ride ya'll oughta come join us! DBA, sorry, don't think there's any hotels near! Lol
Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone. Clippity Clop, I am quite jealous of your welsh right about now. Is yours a small A or a larger variety? I am in the market for a small Welsh Cob right now (going over to look at a 14hh mare on Friday). I'm really wanting something large enough to ride and jump, but still pony.
Womack - I once had the opportunity to drive a Welsh A stallion out on the trails for marathon training. We ran into some people on horseback and those poor horses were petrified of what was chasing the pony! They kept blowing and snorting, whereas Tigger was just trying to get a good look at that pretty bay mare. We had him stand still and let the other horses approach to check it out and then move on before continuing on our path.
My friends and I went to a couple of rides, that had several mule wagons. The horses were wth! But they soon got use to them, I had mine follow right behind, beside and in between the wagons several times, to help her get use to them for the future. My friends mare HATES mules. She would see one, her ears would pin, her mouth would open as large as she could get it, and lunge for those mules, she really had to watch her around the wagons, along with the mule riders. It was almost comical watching her, but could be serious if left unchecked.

My pony would be a half Welsh Section B (13.3 hh) if I had registered him. I guess I still could for a few hundred bucks of course, but just never have. He is tall/stocky enough for me to throw an english saddle on and ride out with friends. He also fits in cob harness and tack which is SO NICE b/c two of my other horses fit into cob sizes - makes things easier when you can share tack/girths, etc! Good luck pony shopping!! I hope you find something you can't live without.
