    Training a 15yr old mare as a childs horse?

    A friend of mine isn't doing so well and she needs to find a home for one of her pony mares. She is gentle but really has never done anything, but be a broodmare. Is she too old? My fear is that she will be set in her ways to be unsuitable for my girlie. What are your thoughts of training her to be childs pony?
    Thank you!

    I think it is possible but if she has never been ridden, it may take years to get her to the point where she is suitable. That is, of course, whether her temperment under saddle is suitable for a child to ride or not. Some horses that are sweet as they can be are absolute terrors when you get into the saddle and others are just as sweet to ride as they are to handle.

    Has she ever been ridden or just been a broodmare all her life?
