    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?
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. English Riding
    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...
  5. 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?

    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...
  7. 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.
  8. Horse Training
    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...

    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...
  10. 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...
  11. New to Horses
    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...
  12. 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...
  13. Horse Training
    So my pony Skippy is quite the speedster. This year I want to teach him how to better carry himself and get smoother gaits from him. He is a pony, but if I can do some groundwork and riding exercises to teach him how to become more balanced and lengthen his strides for a smoother trot and lope...
  14. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi, just wondering if this saddle looks right to y'all? Considering buying it as it's very cheap. Not needed for excessive riding, just for mucking around on a pony. It was suggested that it's be okay for lead line but not hard work. Opinions? Do I spent the $20 or pass? Thanks in advance...
  15. Horse Breeds
    Hello all, new poster here. For a couple of months now, I've been trying to uncover the identity of my boy (with no success) and decided to come here for help. We've known each other nearly a year now, and I know in his previous home (a small TB farm over the road) he was used as a tether...

    Hey everyone :) So my grandma had 2 ponies that she got roughly 6 years ago. The one was a rescue as she'd been very abused to the point she'd freak out if you picked up a whip or even just a stick despite standing a few feet away and not even directing your body towards her. She was also...

    A while ago I got a little mare, she's about 13.3, she is doing great now but she was extremely underweight. She is 8 years old I think and I started her under saddle about a month and a half ago. She is going great and taking everything in stride. But I am starting to have trouble turning...
  18. Horse Health
    Hi All .. Looking for advice. Please keep in mind this is about a 28-30-year-old pony. Have a pony that 2 months ago suffered a dehydration colic. After getting him over that he never really bounced back. Vet took blood work. Tested okay for everything other than possible Cushing’s...
  19. Horse Training
    Hello everyone :) It's been a few months since I last posted as circumstances made me sell my horse unfortunately. However, things have changed once more. In a few weeks, I'll be moving to a different town and into my grandparent's cabin on their farm. On this farm, they have two little...
  20. Horse Training
    Hi all, I'm attempting to train my pony who's been extremely stubborn as of late. So far, sessions include simple groundwork and tieing up to get her used to that (as suggested by our old farrier). But we've been having issues with the farrier as she's really uncomfortable with her hooves being...
