Where to find a good single pony?
to do Combined Driving with? None of the obvious sale sites seem to have anything.
I volunteer at the KY Classic CDE every year, this one included, and I while I find all the big warmblood horses very spectacular, I probably need to begin with a pony.
Are all the good ones sold by word of mouth? Now, I don't want to go to Germany and compete, I'd stay in my neck of the woods, and would be years away in terms of the sheer time it would take to compete at Advanced.
But, the more I watch, the older I get, the more I think this might be a direction I'm looking to go. I had a lovely Haffie that drove, and I worked with Standardbreds for decades, so, I do drive. I also ride/train dressage, so I would think that would help. I got to spend time during the WEG behind David Saunders as they and the Morgans stayed at our farm for the month prior.
I foxhunt my current horse, but I want to "compete" and the more I watch, the more I think "I could do that" (perhaps not a figure 8 with one hand)
Where would you start? Gayla is close in terms of lessons.
Well the staff at Gayla seems to have changed a lot... so now what
Any other suggestions in the Ohio/KY/IN area?
