My first Stallion

Hi Everyone
I was looking for some tips and things about riding and working with a stud. I have a Fell Pony Stud and love him. We are hoping to do dressage this year! Thank you!

Sorry, but you simply MUST post a photo! Fell ponies are great ponies.

Other than that, an important part of handling stallions (are you sure you want a stallion when there are just so many good ones around?) you must be 100% consistent. Be firm and always stop bad behavior almost before it even starts. Any correction must be quick and, more importantly, fair.

Are you planning on breeding? Is there a good market for offspring from your pony? All of these should factor into whether or not your pony should stay a stallion, IMO.

Training is the key to owning a manageable stallion. You must be consistent and fair. I would suggest sending any stallion prospect to a professional trainer.
Good luck. Shalom

Good luck!

Allison's advice was exactly what I would give: consistency. An ill mannered horse is an ill mannered horse (... xD) regardless of its gender. Stallions are just that, not fire breathing dragons.

Hi
Thank you all for the advice. Here is Mozart aka Mo! ( I hope the pictures loaded! If not I will get some from my computer tonight!) I was lucky bc he was a drop off, if you can believe it, at our farm. I was reluctant to work with him bc like mentioned many ppl teach that they are fire breathing dragons!!! When I started working with him he was lol! But after one summer of work he has grown into my favorite pony!! In love! We are interested in breeding him but I just haven't gotten him out there enough. He has great lines I was told and his personality is to die for! I can't wait to go farther with him!

Wow! He's beautiful! The first photo took my breath away! I'd never had a stallion before so can't provide any tips but I do back up good and firm training. Keep us updated :)

He really is a NICE pony... I think he could produce some quality foals... With the right mare of course ;) But he really is lovely. I personally thinks he's so stallion quality. :)

If those pictures were taken in his pasture then you must change the fencing or add an electric wire around the perimeter to keep him from pawing the fence .

He will paw that fence if any horses especially mares are kept in the adjacent pasture. Once again good luck. Shalom
