So a four year old horse can do all that? I would question the horses health. 0_0 3 and 4 is usually when they start.

I agree with White Foot. At just 4 years old... I wonder WHEN he was started (and HOW his joints will hold on).

He would be started at 3.5-4 years old. At 3 -3.5 I would start building his muscles (no lunging yet because that is hard on the joints)

If it could actually be accomplished in a year or so, he'd be worth a pretty penny. Being a champion at a crossrail class isn't going to amount to much - any horse can do that. The most important things would be for him to be a bombproof childs pony and a pro in the showring, and a lot of people aren't going to believe you can get a 4 year old pony with those traits.

At 11.3hh he would be shown by a VERY small and VERY young child. The child that can really ride would probably be looking at a more expensive, more well trained pony and the child that can't ride probably won't be interested in a young pony that needs more training.

In my area? I live in Canada, and you could easily get upwards of $5,000 for him most likely. However, we have not experience the recession here as the US has, and you can still get $2,000 for a well trained trail horse.

Personally I'd never buy 4 year old 11 hh jumping 2+ feet. Because I have no idea how the joints will go in long run. I think horses should not be jumped until at least 5 years old, better 6 (well, I don't mind some free jumps though). But it's just me.

I started jumping my mare at four -the standard age to start jumping- and She was doin 2'3" by the end of her four year old year. And 2'9" at five and 3'3" at six. And she's as sound as anything. My trainer is also a vet and checks her often and wouldnt let me do anything that isnt safe for her. And thoroughbreds can be jumped at three cause they grow up faster. But an average horse can start jumping at four. Nothing wrong with it. ;)

they CAN, heck, you could start them at 1 if you could get on them, but its not that good for a ponies (they don't fully mature as fast as horses) joints to be jumping 2'3 at 4 years old :)

Well... im not sure a 4 year old PONY (those little buggers are usually moody as saiten!!! Lol) is very good to be sold to a kid...... Im not sure about where you live, but ANY pony that has a fantastic tempermant, no matter what they can do, is worth his weight in gold and more, haha.
