I posted on here a few days ago about how you think is the best way to introduce your new horse to your environment and I got such helpful comments I thought I would ask for your opinions once again..
Well I have now found a potential pony I would like. If anyone would like to have a look go to horsemart.co.uk and search for Advert Reference HM919F550 this will bring him up.
Firstly let me just say that I was looking for a 3 year old unbroken pony. So he is slightly older at 4 years old but that is fine. However I have spoken to his current owner and she has had him for 6 months. He is apparantly a big handful. Now I am not a novice and I was looking for a challenging horse but i'm not sure if maybe i'm biting off more than I can chew.
Here are some of his problems:
Up until 6 months ago when this woman bought him he hadn't had any human contact hardly and what he had hadn't been pleasent.
He tanks off sometimes while being lead.
He is very nervous.
He won't let you pick his feet up hence has not had a farrier near him!
And he just doesn't seem to have the time of day for people.
All this aside I am willing to put the time and effort into him and I have been studying the clinton anderson methods day and night.
Do you think hard work and dedication is enough or should I leave it for someone more experienced.
He has been up for sale for quite a while he started at £700 and she is now willing to accept £400.
Please give me your opinions and if anyone has delt with similar horses?
