Tell me about Pony Jumpers....
I come from eventer land, and know nothing about pony jumpers.... and very little about hunter/jumper land.
I tried a pony prospect this morning who screams pony jumper and I'm trying to decide if its worth it to put some more rideable miles on her and try to resell her.
She has a ton of jump,can easily do 3+ , is only 13'1-2, can be a little spicy, but listened (or listened to me who can and will ride just about anything).
Could probably do the hunters after some work.
How good of riders are these kids that do pony jumpers or hunters? Do they know when a half halt is needed and know how to do one? When I was that age, I didn't, but I was also a kid on a pony yeehawing around my farm, not in a lesson program or anything close to it.
I didn't find her jump hard to stay with, but it wasn't an easy smooth jump. She was a bouncy ball.
I'm in Ohio...
tell me about the pony jumper market and what is expected out of a jumper and even a pony hunter
