Pony in Tx

I am selling our 11 year old pony. She was sold to me as a kids pony but she has proved that she is not for kids. She does lead line fine but can not be ridden independently. She threw a little girl who had riding experience today and I can not in good conscience sell her as a kids pony. (When my son fell off I thought it was a fluke but two more kids have since come off of her and I feel she is no longer safe to ride.)
So she is for sale as a companion pasture puff. I am asking $300 for her but that is VERY negotiable. She is an easy keeper and UTD on everything.

I thought you already sold her? Or was it her colt?

Anyhow, good luck, hope you find a good home! :) She's such a cutie! I'll pass the word on.

That was her filly that I sold. I am sort of glad I didn't sell her. My boys don't ride enough for her true colors to come out and lately they have. I am glad to spare some other family from having to deal with her. She isn't mean she just doesn't know anything. Put her on a lead line and she is great. Let a kid ride by themselves and it is a rodeo.

I know $300 is steep for a companion animal but I want to ask more for her so that she doesn't end up at the sale barn for meat. I wasn't sure what to price her at.

How tall do you think she is? I will tell my friend in Tx about her to spread the word :)

She is about 12hh. I have a friend who drives in Houston and he put me in contact with a driving trainer yesterday. he said it was worth a shot. i was really hoping he(my friend) would take her.

If the problem is that she just doesn't know anything, maybe smrobs can work with her as well. I had a little pony I bought for my kids (many years ago) that was so-so under saddle but was a fantastic driving pony. Maybe you can go in that direction. A driving pony has some real value.

Unfortunately, a pony that is not kid safe is rather useless except as a companion - and there are plenty of free horses for that.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

She is to small for an adult to ride unfortunately or I would do it myself. Hopefully this driving thing will pan out.

The way I work with ponies is to saddle them and secure a feed bag to the saddle, then long line them. It gets them used to the weight as well as being driven.
