Raise them.
My babies are handled after weaning as much as possible until riding time. I break at @3 years old, start lunging @2.5. Right now I have 2 to year olds that have great ground manners and have carried tack. They behave well for the farrier and vet, tie etc.

Just saying... I took in a 5 month old and now at 2 he is good with basic ground manners and grooming, leads well and stands tied well most of the time. I have done enough with him to keep me safe, move his hindquarters, back up, whoa. I lunge him on a 12 foot lead rope occasionally but that is all. He will be started not this summer but next. I'm lucky that my barn manager is a reputable trainer. I would never dream of trying to do it on my own!
I hope you can find a good trainer :)

^^^ That's him, my avatar. He is a very mellow guy and I hope he will be my mountain trail riding pony in a few years!
