Smile Please help mum of pony mad daughter

Hello to all. I'm new on the forum and was wondering if anyone can help me. I have a 9 year old daughter who is pony mad and she would like a pony of her own, but i am not sure if it is going to be a five minute wonder. Can anyone please give me some ideas to make sure that it's not going to be a five minute wonder?

You may consider getting her lessons at a local stable or maybe lease a horse for a couple of months. That way, you can get out without having to re-sell everything you just bought if she decides she doesn't like it. I honestly believe that every person in the world should have the opportunity to ride a good horse, it would make the world a better place. :)

Welcome to the forum.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

smrobs is spot on! Lessons would be good, as she will learn a ton about riding and taking care of horses. If those are going well, you might consider leasing a horse for a while - she would have to be willing to clean its stalls, pick its hooves, etc., rather than just get on and ride.

It will be a good indication whether or not she's serious or just ponystruck ;)

And welcome!!
