You've cherished ponies for your entire life, perhaps you did some trail riding as a youngster and possibly you had the opportunity to revive your adoration for steeds further down the road. At that point the day came in your late 50's you had a the chance to purchase your first steed. Is it accurate to say that you are to old to go up against this delightful, superb, ground-breaking creature?

As I would see it, you are not, I say that since I moved to the nation at 57 and purchased my first steed at 58. What did I consider when I was picking my steed? First I thought of what I was able to do physically, in view of that I figured I wouldn't need a steed more than 15hh, anything bigger than that makes for a greater fall and conceivable broken bones.

My second thought was the steeds age and personality, a decent old bombproof steed that I could move myself over into riding with. At that point there is breed I wasn't objected about breed, absolutely in light of the fact that as a youngster I rode various breeds, and how quiet a steed is, is more about how they are prepared and treated not the breed.

I was thinking Quarter pony or Standardbred, I rented a Standardbred in my late 30's and he was extremely quiet yet he could be exceptionally willful. One breed I never considered was a Thoroughbred, I figured this breed might be route over my head and from what I'd seen watching horse hustling, my thinking was very profoundly hung for me.

In the wake of contemplating all the above I began searching for my fantasy steed, and I discovered him. It didn't take ache for me to begin to look all starry eyed at a steed I found in a promotion on Facebook. This is the place I began scrutinizing my rational soundness, this steed is 16.1hh 11 yr old off the track pure breed, he wasn't ridden since his hustling days and I didn't know whether he was sound.

In all actuality I couldn't have cared less, I became hopelessly enamored with the pony in the promotion and I fell considerably more infatuated when I met him. No doubt so he's a pure blood, he needs re-teaching and as a joy horse he is green, yet so am I. I used to ride feisty ponies however I was 16 not 58... so I ask myself "What were you considering" my answer is I wasn't considering, I just knew this kid was for me.

So now the following inquiry is am I excessively green and excessively old interpretation of this mammoth assignment to get my steed sound enough to work with and in the long run ride. On the off chance that I had no involvement with steeds at all then maybe it might be too huge an undertaking for me. On the off chance that there was no such thing as the web on the other hand it might be too enormous an undertaking for me. The thing is I trust I can do this and I adore and trust my kid and I know he cherishes and confides in me.

Something else to consider is wellness, I am not excessively unfit but rather, making it impossible to begin foundation I have to advance up my wellness which I am taking a shot at now. Age is only a number, in the event that you have the enthusiasm, the affection and the dedication nothing is incomprehensible. Figure out how to peruse your pony and hear him out and dependably make security a need, steeds are enormous intense creatures and can do us some genuine harm, regardless of whether inadvertently.
