Well, Grandma and Grandpa bought my daughter (Sierra) her first pony. Sierra named him Ponyboy. He is about 20+ years young. :P He has been running in the feild for about 5 years. So he needs a refresher course in manors. But my mom will take care of that. She rode him the other day. Here are some pics and a video. You'll need a high speed connection to view it.

Great Pics and great video!!! I grew up with horses and got my first Pony (a welsh) when I was 3. My mom always joked that I could ride better than I could walk. I still have horses and frequently ride with my kids (ages 3 1/2 and 1 1/2) I think gorwing up with horses is soo great for children :D By the way your daughter is a cutie!!

Thank you. I grew up with horses too. Mom says I was practically born on one. :P

Cute pony, cute kid :D

Please take this as coming from a concerned mommy... that's all I mean it as. I'd like to see your daughter with some appropriate footwear and a helmet. Even an older gentleman can spook or perhaps trip...

I also was wondering about his retuning... he seems quite the small guy, are you sure he can handle an adult's weight? Or were you planning on lounging and long reining? You also might want to grab a pony sized saddle pad so it doesn't interfere with his movement and saddle fit.

Best of luck with your new guy :)

She does have boots/helmet. She just didn't have them this first day.

I'm sure he wouldn't handle an adults weight. He is only caring a child. :wink:

And he does have a new saddle pad. This was just the first day home. And she was excited to ride him.

Sorry, I think I misread the original post:

Thought your mom was riding him, heh...

Good luck with your new pony! :)

lol. I can see where you could have drawn that conclusion. My fault for not being specific. No she won't be riding him. She is working with him from the ground. :D

He certainly wouldn't hold her weight...lol. Considering she's pear shaped. 8)
