In the same boat as Frankee, looking for a pony ne 12h for first independent riding pony. Little mini is great, but cannot teach 5yo daughter to trot on a jackhammer! We do not need a fancy pony, but rather one that is safe, gentle and reliable. A retired / semi-retired older pony who's been there done that, that doesn't mind a fuss being made of them would be ideal. My daughter handles her current pony with confidence, and I'm looking for the next step up that will nuture that confidence. She's only light, only 18kg!
We have our own property, and a knowledgable home is assured.
(Sorry Frankee for Hijacking thread)
