Besides the obvious and already stated advantage of tying them, it will allow you to train in peace and teach the little hellion some manners at the same time. Even though I have a separate paddock away from my riding area, often tie my paint gelding in his stall or to a post when I am riding my mare just to teach him patience at the pole.
smrobs and Sharpie like this.

Without a fence or a post to tie your pony up to, your mare and you will be at the mercy of your pony every ride. That is not safe for either of you but I doubt you're going to listen to any of us anyways so what does it matter?

I am surprised that you would get an answer for that on Yahoo, either. There really aren't very many choices when it comes to things to do. YOu can fence off pony, tie up pony , sell pony, or donkey, ride elsewhere, carry long whip to drive pony off or ? That's all I can think off and I get the feeling that none of them feels like a solution. It does sound like a dangerous situation . Good luck finding the way that makes it safer.
