  1. Horses for Sale, Lease, Loan & Wanted
    Hi guys! So I have been leasing this one pony for over 2 years and I've become quite found of her. I had to take a break for classes for 8 months and so she's been sitting out in the pasture the entire time since. When I resumed riding her I decided I wanted to buy her. The problem is her price...
  2. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    I've just purchased a young POA (he'll be 2 in a month) and I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with his feed. I've never had a horse this young before, so I've been doing lots of research on proper nutrition for a horse of that age, but there are lots of different opinions out there so...
  3. Saddle Discussions & Saddle Fitting Queries
    Ive tried a few different saddles on my little POA mare, and this one seems to fit the best so far. Saddle fit is not something I'm well versed in so opinions are greatly appreciated:)
  4. Trailer and Horsebox queries
    We have two pony mares and foals that we are needed in transport to another pasture 40 minutes away from their current pasture. The mares are both quiet and have been in the tralier a lot. The foals are almost 2 months old and partially halter broke. What is the best way to trailer with both...
  5. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    I have a show coming up, and I have a POA gelding whose tail is mostly black, but it has some white strands in it (because he's spotted). It's also thin, a little bleached out at the bottom. I want it to look neater and fuller, so should I use some Shapley's touch up on it? In black? Or would it...
  6. General Riding queries
    I have the most amazing pony gelding who's 12, (almost 13!) years old. I want him to be the 'jack of all trades' pony who can do anything you ask him to, and right now he's pretty close. He can do from small jumps to barrels to pleasure to a *little* reining so far. I've been thinking about...
  7. Horse Talk
    I want to compete in POAC (pony of the americas club) shows. My pony has papers, but I just have them in a folder and when I bought him the owners just gave them to me, I didn't get his papers in my name or whatever. Do I have to do that before I can show in a POAC show? I know nothing about...
  8. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    He's already mine, but I'm just wondering how his conformation is! I've never really looked at it, and when I look at him, I just don't see the flaws because he's my pony.. But I know he has some, and I'd like you to point them out! Any crits are welcome, long or short! :) Do you think he'd do...
  9. Horses for Sale, Lease, Loan & Wanted
    Lance a 6 year old loving boy is looking for his first horse or pony. He wants a horse that is small enough for him to control, but big enough for a teenager (13-14.3 hands). He has recently started Pony Club and 4H this year and would like a pony that has been in one of those clubs. He has been...
  10. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I am wondering if, Romeo my new POA stallion has enough white to produce a colored foal (appy color) out of a soild mare. I am just wondering. I am most likely not going to breed. I am just interested to see what you say. Here are some Pictures of his color, sorry not that great of pictures...
  11. Horse Talk
    :lol: I posted a topic a while back about getting my naughty gelding to behave at halter... a lot of you gave me advice and it really helped! He FINALLY does what I want him to at halter. We've been working hard at it too. I've gotten to be a better handler and he's gotten to be a better pony...
  12. General Riding queries
    Specs usually has a decent trot, but when I work him into a canter he goes into this super choppy-pony trot right before we go into the canter, which sends me flying everywhere. I can sut his norm trot really well and sit the canter pretty decently too, but just not his 'transition chop-trot'...
  13. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I've decided I want to place in a halter class with my gelding... One problem: he's a major butthead at halter. Worst manners ever. It's been going on too long. I know you can't garuntee me a place with him, but I firmly believe if he had good manners he could do decently in halter(especially...

  16. Show Jumping and using jumping in training
    Hello! I was just wondering how I could teach my POA gelding to jump. he's a western horse strictly, but I think jumping would be a fun thing to learn to do on the side. Unfortunately, there is NO ONE here that jumps, or rides English for that matter. I have jumped before and I can ride English...
  17. Barrel Racing
    I have a POA/QH cross gelding named Putts, and I was wondering how I could make him a good barrel horse. He likes to run and definitly has the spark to do it. I have barrel raced him before, but not much. I want to be able to do 17 second runs, our fastest is 19 seconds. Have you got any tips...
