LOOKING FOR: Kid friendly pony in West Michigan area

We're toying with the idea of getting my sister a smaller, calmer horse for her to get her confidence on. Our other two are a tad too intimidating for her.

We'd prefer a pony sized horse that adults can ride as well. The tallest adult who would ride said pony is 5'6.

So requirements we'd like:

- Bomb proof or close to (We understand true bomb proof animals are rare lol)
- Confidence Builder
- NOT a Shetland
- Trail proficient
- 4H proficient
- Level headed
- Good ground manners
- Price preferably <2500

Out of personal preference, we'd prefer geldings

Age, color, and breed are not important. And of course, should be UTD on all shots and have no vices with good (doesn't have to be perfect) conformation.

Let me know if you know anything.

Also, my mom literally just mentioned this in passing so we might not actually do anything (have to convince my dad that a 3rd equine is a good idea )

I thought maybe if we had a supply of choices we might convince him better.
