Favorite kind of pony?
I'm considering in the far future, keeping a pair of pony mares for competition and possibly a foal or two from an outside stud. Possibly. Keep in mind I'm not talking about a pair of mares I picked up for $500, but well-bred show ponies.

I'm particularly fond of the Hackney Ponies, due to their light appearance and snappy action. I find stockier ponies to be cute, but not something I'd be particularly interested in keeping. I kind of wish their was a breed more like Divo-Fells are similar but again, too stocky-but he's more 'one of a kind' in taking his fathers looks and his mothers height.
Welshes are, again, too stocky for my taste. I'm not really fond of their heads either, I think their too delicate on a too thick frame.

Do you have a favorite kind of pony? One thing I really hate is an ill-mannered pony. I just can't stand it, I hate it worse then a ill-mannered horse. :lol:

I really love Shetland Ponies and German Riding Ponies, but I like a lot of different breeds f.ex. Welsh Ponies.

I'm a HUGE fan of German Riding Ponies. They remind me of mini-warmbloods, super adorable with fabulous athletic ability.

For me it's a Welsh sec C/D, a Fell or a New Forest. They're the ones that have provided me with my most interesting rides.

I love either Australian Stock Ponies, Australian Riding Ponies and Welsh Section A. I've had a mix of all three before and he was a great, well put together pony.
