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.

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.
