Our market is very different but that being said, I personally wouldn't flinch at that for a nice pony. They are far & few between.

I agree I paid 600 for my mare she is an 18 year old dales mare who hasn't particularly been used much in the last 4/5 years but I paid that solely on her gentle nature and was prepared to put work into her. I believe I got a bargain! I can leave her in a field for a month at a time even longer and she rides like she was out yesterday, She does need work on responsiveness but we are getting there. The only reason for not training her western was that I didn't want to put her through that at 18 so she is my trail horse and in the two years i've had year she hasn't looked at anything. So between the two ponies I think I have my perfect horses. With a bit of practice at western hopefully i'll come to the US next year for a riding holiday

Hie is just too gorgeous! Looks great in the tack. Are you going to a dude ranch for your "riding holiday" ?

I'm not sure yet, I haven't really sorted anything but it's my 30th next June so I would really like to come for a week of riding, I have started saving but not really looked into the options. I'd actually really like to help out on a ranch doing whatever needs doing and working with the horses rather than the whole commercial riding holidays. I think I would be scared of the cattle but I would love to throw myself into ranch life for a week and see what it's actually like!

He is absolutely gorgeous and looks great in western tack. I like his head carriage, it has a bit more of an arch and looks lovely.

Netty, he is perfectly natural in Western tack and a lovely horse.
He looks to have a rather short back, so having a shorter pad under that saddle would look better in my opinion. The blue is too loud for me and makes the saddle look like an "island" on his back.
I think a black blanket with some stripes or some other decoration may be great, and if and when you have the money, a black bridle with some silver accents, and get one with the wider cheek pieces. He might look cool with a decorative fly whisk under his chin (hanging from chin strap.) it would kind of mirror his full tail.

Tiny he has quite a short back but very wide. My pad is a dark brown with different shades of brown stripe running through it how does that sound? Would a black bridle be okay with a dark brown saddle? I think the fly whisk would look fab? I thought about attaching one to the cinch as he suffers from sweet itch so thought it might help under his belly.
