Regardless of the breed, a THREE year old horse/pony/donkey will not have the experience to carry an inexperienced rider thru pony club, especially when 75% of the kids who attend PC are usually more an inexperienced group(no offence to anyone, I was in Pony Club myself for years, great program).

    If he carries a kid thru it, it's likely more because as posted above, he is a saint because he is to young to have had the proper training or even the experience to take on a beginner rider.

    With some training under it's belt, you could make yourself a very good amount of money. If you decide to sell your pony now, unless it's a little horse with exceptional conformation and breeding, you are not going to find someone who is willing to take on a green welsh pony unless you price him for cheap.

    Would be curious to see pictures of him.
    Cheers
    When I first started riding I showed a three year old Walking filly in 4-H(not sure how different it is from PC). Not a good idea, but of course I didn't know. It's a wonder I never got seriously injured. Lol

    As for the OP, I would have to agree that pony is a saint

    Pony club is Gymkhana...lol; just depends on where you come from, and what you choose to call it...where I come from, it was called a "play day"... And although it does include some
    Horsemanship and pleasure classes, alot of the events are gaming type events and jumping...

    To the OP, I'd really like to see pics of this pony...or perhaps a video of how he rides, both with you and the 5 year old that's riding him. It's always nice to see them, because you can't price a horse really well without seeing it; a description isn't really helpful in that area.

    PC is a very different organisation in Australia. I would guess that the OP meant that the pony has been to rally days - Not necessarily competitions.

    I didn't realise PC was gymkhana events...learn something new every day, right?

    I agree with everyone else, hard to price him without even confo pics, but riding pics of yourself on him as well as the 5 year old would allow us to price him better. I think if he's this good as a 3 year old, another year or 2 of training, get him more bombproof, get the miles and experience on him - you'd be looking at a pretty penny. There's a HUGE demand for reliable welsh ponies and welsh pony crosses here, not sure about where you are, but I sold my 4 year old Welsh Pony/Arabian for $2500 as a pleasure and trail horse. Another thing that would up his value, at least here it would, train him to ground drive and pull a cart if available. Having him able to be useful to a kid for PC as well as the parent to go for sleigh rides...would make for an easier sell.

    Hope to see some pictures and videos soon!

    It isn't in AUS, where the horse is located. Gymkhana events are one of the many different activities PC offers.

    Hmmm...maybe my info has been wrong? People would be involved in certain clubs, and they would do pony club meets, or gymkhanas once or twice a month. Maybe it's just where I grew up, it could be totally different as a whole though.

    You join a club, and each club holds rally days once or twice a month. These are training/instruction days. You can choose what you want to participate in and they often include flatwork, jumping, troop drill, games, etc.

    There are then seperate competitions run by clubs, zones or higher up states, that members can compete in. These are in all disciplines and sometimes a mixture of a few. You don't have any obligation to compete - Many members join simply for rally days.
