Anonymous asked: If you have a second, could you find some minis or smaller ponies in the Long Island/New York State/Eastern New Jersey area? Not really going to be used for work - just to cuddle and mess with and maybe be a pasture buddy. Under $700 preferably, but I know this area is expensive, so I guess up to $1000
I’m located in Georgia, but I have one that is for sale for 500 I believe. Maybe less I’m not sure. He’s really cute and pretty friendly. I know it’s not exactly in the area, but with shipping he might be less.. Gelding, with papers, 3 years old I believe.
I actually absolutely do not have a problem with it when the rider is under a well informed trainer, and has time to devote. It takes a special horse and a dedicated rider, but it’s not all shit.
My first big horse was a green horse. I’ve had him for 6 years now. He does everything I ask.
My only regret is that he is not finished, and I do not have the skillset or money to get him finished. However, this horse has taken care of me.
I’m not going to say it’s an awesome choice, or it’s right for everyone, or it’s a even a good idea, but I do know I learned more from that horse than I ever could have learned from a finished one.
Please don’t just assume a green rider can’t handle it. There are special horses, and dedicated riders.
