What I'm looking for would be a pony to get to be kid safe, between 13 and 14.2 hands, no necessary show miles, green broke, sound to jump, etc.
I've already budgetted the cost of the extra feed, blankets, have the vet money set aside, farrier, teeth, etc. But I've never spent my own money on the initial cost, and as much as it could harshly fail, it'd be interesting to put it into perspective, if it's even possible to make money in this industry. I would, one day, like to be a trainer- and for now I'll settle for working with and learning from trainers in my area.
Anyway, I got kinda off topic, haha!
Now! I don't want to hear "that's a dumb idea!" if you don't agree, make sure your comments are constructive, and we'll all take it better, I'm interested in hearing tips aswell.
