  1. Horse Breeds
    Hi Everyone! This is a shoutout to all welsh, welsh cross, and young horse owners/trainers. I have a 2.5 yo Welsh D x Oldenburg. I've owned him for 7ish months and his is the first horse younger than 3 that I've worked with. So here is my question. What should I expect of his...
  2. Horse Breeds
    Planning on breeding a Welsh Sec. D/Trakehner cross this year. I have seen a lot of the Welsh/TB cross or Welsh Sec. B/Warmblood cross but I haven't seen a lot of Welsh Cob/Warmblood crosses. Does anyone have any opinions on this cross? What should I expect? Pictures would be great if you have any.
  3. Horse Training
    I am helping my BO out and training one of her five new welsh ponies. They've been around for a while, and four of them are going at the walk, trot, and a few at the canter. But there is one pony who is terrified of everything. You can not catch him unless you happen to corner him. At which...
  4. New to Horses
    I loan a 14.2hh nine year old black Welsh Section D gelding called Harry. His owners said he was in the same home from birth before they bought him around April 2013. He was a national showjumper but I don't know what his showname was. I'd love to see some photos of him competing - does anyone...
  5. Horse Nutrition
    My pony is a Welsh Section D and he's had laminitus before - a few weeks ago actually. He has restricted grazing but because it's been bad weather there's barely any grass so when he goes out in the morning he has a slice of hay. He also has soaked hay overnight and some chaff in the morning...

  8. Horse Pictures
    hahaha just kidding. This is Lelouch (leh-luu-shhh) We also call him Lulu. He is a 11-11.2 hh Connemara X Welsh, 9 years old. He is a pasture mate for my paint (primary riding horse) but I also get on him for fun and will take him to shows this summer. He is from a eventing stable but his...
  9. Horse Training
    P.s. I'm not really looking for any advice, I just wanted to show off Hippy's accomplishments lol XD Me and my sister own a lovely little light palomino welsh pony named Hippy! He turned 8 this year, but was only broken when he was 4/5 - he is very skittish, green and nervous - it's just his...
  10. Horse Shows
    My horse won the Yearling class at Lampeter Horse Show in Wales, United Kingdom. Check out my photos on my profile to see him in action there. We are soooo proud of him!! We worked so hard to get him there, I started out as a rider, then a horse owner in 10 years later I got my own yard and...
  11. Horse Shows
    I noticed a thread from quite a while back that started with someone asking about shows in Alberta. Not many were mentioned, and this one wasn't, so I thought I'd post. This is a great show in Alberta. I've copied and pasted the general information from the Wild Rose Show's facebook page...
  12. Horse Nutrition
    I've searched a little and read some different posts about feeding ponies but I just wanted to get some opinions on the best options in my situation. I haven't had a pony for a long time (about 15 years probably and he was a Caspian that practically lived off of fresh air). Yesterday I...
  13. Horses for Sale
    "Brunette Moment" aka Petal is a 6 year old 14.1 Welsh X pony. She has lots of scope and potential to be doing the large pony division, or the pony jumpers. She has great ground manners and is always looking to please her rider. At Petals 2nd horse show, Petal and her 12 year old owner won the...
  14. Horse Breeding
    Ok so I have a wonderful and talented Haflinger X mare who I love dearly but who has had an accident and is pretty much going to be retired now. I've been toying with the idea of putting her in foal for a few years now so it would now seem to be the ideal time. Her Dam was a Welsh X Arab and...
  15. Horse Showmanship
    I am interested in getting into showing Welsh ponies (mostly section B) and am asking for advice on how they need to be presented at shows. This will mostly be lead or in-hand classes. I have a perlino colt suited to the showing and really want to know how to impress the judges. How should his...
  16. Horse Breeds
    My favourite breeds of horses to ride are Quater horses and Welshies. QH- i love the way they hold themselves. I particually love this QH I ride at my riding center. He is really forward moving and has a great trot. Welsh- Are just fun to ride. Love clydesdales as well. They're gorgeous.

  18. Horse Breeds
    I've had Harry..4 or 5 months now and I'm just wondering what you guys think of a breed for him. I was told he was a cob mongrel and an old guy thought he was an irish cob but 2 people recently suggested he was a welsh cob and the woman who sold me my saddle said she thinks he is a lot welsh...
