  1. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hey. I have taken on a lease for a chunky pony...He is very sweet, but has some sort of funky go-home complex that goes off every now and then. He starts to gently pull towards home, so I gently steer him back and he goes bezerk and bucks. I can sit bucks no problem, but the his saddle's...
  2. No new threads please. Phasing out
    I am hoping to get a pony in the next couple of months. I have a regular sized mare already, who lives boarded on dry pasture with other mares. I am wondering what the best option would be for me in terms of housing the new pony. I've read that it isn't safe to keep ponies and full-sized horses...
  3. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hello, As we encounter spring all equestrians face mud (ahhh the horror 😂). My pony is pasture boarded and the mud and show season are arriving. So I want to purchase some kind of sheet or rug to help keep the mud off of him the night before. I don't want something that will make him sweat but...

  5. Horse Health
    We bought a gelding P.O.A. and halflinger cross for my kids as a beginner pony. We were told he was 12 but looking at his teeth I just can’t tell. I honestly don’t care either way he’ll have a great home for the rest of his life regardless, just curious. 🤔

    We got a pony a few hours ago from a home that she wasn't properly cared for and we plan to give her the life and love she deserves. We were told she was 20 but her teeth don't look like it to us? What would you say?
  7. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hi everyone! I am currently looking to adopt a little project mare for the next year. Hoping to gain some experience working with a younger horse and eventually do some low-level dressage, trail riding and maybe working eq! Just would love some overall thoughts/opinions on her conformation...
  8. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I have a 19 year old pony mix standing just under 13 hands, around 700 pounds at ideal weight. He is pretty fine boned and narrow. I am almost 18 years old, around 130 pounds, and 5'4'' tall. He does not show any signs of struggling to carry me, sometimes he is lazy on the trails and I worry...
  9. English Riding Queries
    Hello! (This is my first post so I apologize if something is wrong) My goal has always been to go to pony finals, but it doesn't really say anywhere what the age limit is. I am wondering how old is too old. I am a teenager (prefer not to say my exact age), but I fit onto large ponies well (I am...
  10. Horse Shows
    After much googling, sorting through FEI website- I cannot find the printed FEI pony test that ISNT the freestyle requirements. Does anyone have a paper copy of the test and can upload a picture or can do some internet wizardry and find them?
  11. Horse Talk
    I'm not sure how many of you remember since it's been several months, but my grandma took in an auction rescue horse around October. For those of you who are new or need a refresher, here's a quick summery. A mare who was nearly skin and bones with last years winter coat still clinging to her...
  12. Horse Breeding
    My POA mare is pregnant with her first foal! The foal is due about late March or early April. She is currently 311. She was breed to a POA stallion named jbj’s Chcocolate Zipper! I will post pictures of her belly soon.
  13. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Good morning/evening everyone! Lately my grandma's little pony has started acting up. He's pretty much only halter broke and like a typical pony, has a BIG attitude. If he was a person, he'd probably be the most sarcastic and goofy guy you'd ever meet lol. Anyway, he has this habit of turning...
  14. Horse Talk
    We bought our second horse, a 13 year old QH, back in late June. Around the same time, we sold our pony because he was not a good fit for our kids. He went to a WONDERFUL home - we still get updates on him. Anyway, ever since we've been on the search for a second so Red (the QH) wouldn't be...
  15. Horse Talk
    My grandma's pony (about 30 in tall) is rather lonely with being the only horse on the farm. A few days ago, I came across a post on FB of a mini filly for sale. She's only 5 months old and absolutely adorable. And now, I'm considering getting this little baby so that my grandma's pony can have...
  16. No new threads please. Phasing out
    So, on Friday we brought our first pony, Sebastian, home. It has been interesting to say the least. His previous owner said he has been sitting unhandled since last September. Previously, he had been broke to ride. We knew he would need a tune up and have been talking to different trainers in...
  17. Horse Health
    We are brand new equine owners - our pony Sebastian is arriving on April 12th! While we have been diligently working to get everything ready for him, we have had a blooming of what I thought was a lovely weed. When I read up about it, to make sure it would be ok with Seb, I discovered that this...
