Monday Minstrel: The Pony Mad Child

Do you have a pony mad child? Here is some excellent advice from Tina Bettison in her book, “100 ways to live with a Horse Addict.”

Beware of falling into the trap of ‘keeping up with the Joneses’. No matter what your child’s friends have, you do not need a splendid, state-of-the-art horsebox that travels six, when you have one 12.2hh pony; a trailer will do.

This young woman is not a “pony mad child” but the photo does show a smaller pony to give you perspective.

    We bought Trixie for our girls. She was a horse not a pony, but served her purpose. My youngest learnt to ride on a white pony called Potato ๐Ÿ˜‚ she then graduated to riding ex race horses and is a good rider. Now she has two of her own horses ๐Ÿ™‚
