A pony is a small horse Equus ferus caballus. Depending on context, a pony may be a horse that is under an approximate or exact height at the withers or a small horse with a specific conformation and temperament. There are many different breeds.
Horse and Hound recently ran a special edition dedicated to ponies and asking why more adults are now riding ponies. My question is why adults who choose to ride ponies seem to find themselves at the end of some very patronising attitudes. Has anyone else encountered this?
I have to admit right here, right now, I love ponies! Yes, I know that there are many really quiet horses out there that kids ride at home and maybe at shows, but the fact remains that sometimes bigger is not necessarily better or cuter! At age 11, my very first lesson horse was a Saddlebred type about the same height as a skyscraper.
Lessons can also include ground work, grooming, hoof care and tacking up. You can book one lesson just for fun or as many lessons as you like Pony rides for the kids are also available. He's a QH x us 10 years old, in fat paddock condition.
Although they ride in three different disciplines in three different provinces, Tonya Cummins Amato, Jillian Scharfstein, and Celine Roy have something in common. They believe in the power of ponies. The women are among the adult riders in Canada who are eschewing large horses for more petite mounts.
