    That is awesome... especially as he thought of it himself.

They both love him a huge pet, with the benefits of learning how to move around horses :)
    So do you have a replacement pony? Good ones are hard to find.

    I just joined, and I did think this was a fun, friendly forum but I now realize anything I plan on posting, I need to be prepared for any and all sorts of critiques.
    That is an understatement. LOL

    No replacement pony. He rides my mare, and my mom's mare. And we have several others he rides around. We just bought a yearling that is our newest member of the family, Trace "picked him out" and he is Trace's, but obviously that is a long time away :) Right now, the yearling is Trace's to love, groom and bond with, but he has his driving lessons with the mini still and his riding lessons on our mares :)

    It IS hard to find good ones, thankfully Trace's Grammy, my mom, is blessed to be an excellent horsewoman and tends to turn any and all into "good ones" :)

    I can't comment on doing around the world with little ones, it's my 5 year old daughter's favorite part of lessons. I will take a bad mommy slap on the wrist with you LOL! She now does them bareback, arms out on my 23 year old mare, but always in the indoor. *sticks wrist out*

    You are certainly blessed with a pony like that. They are rare gems! Cute costume too :)

    That's incredible! Bareback and arms out, what great balance! :) Trace did it once on my mare, but it still makes my heart jump to my throat that high off the ground. He was in the roundpen practicing neckreining, and the next thing I knew he had spun around, so we whoa-d, and I headed her while he spun back around. I'm not that confident to let him do it that high up yet, even though I'm sure HE is :))

    That's the hard part! When creating a confident rider, we GET a confident rider LOL

    Haha I hope so! By the time I have a kid and he/she is old enough to be on a horse my horse will be in his late teens. However he has the perfect personality to be my future "baby sitting horse" lol. I for see me getting my own mini someday though! I always loved them just never had a use for one for myself...but I think a childs first pony is an excellent excuse, don't you? Lol

    What a great costume! And he thought of it on his own that's great! Very creative.

    What a confident little guy. It will be great to see what he'll be doing when he's older!
