    ^^ this is a great idea! Pony needs more work....

    And she always loved grooming her old pony when we got to the show, so maybe I can convince her to do that for my trainers too.

    When my kids were younger I was ALL ABOUT the preschool iphone apps.

    Chalk me up as one of those parents who will plop their kid in front of a movie, tablet or computer to keep them occupied...

    I can tell you from personal experience, it's because people lie.

    I was selling a big pretty TB that was sweet, great disposition, but I sold him because he was buddy sour and would test me too...

    Just a thought...Does she have ADHD/ADD?

    OP-

    I am you. I want to save every hurt, defenseless animal that I come across....And my vet loves me for it. I joke that I will have a brick with my name stamped on it at his new building...

    Good points. :-)

    Kate, my daughter, at 6 is almost 4'2", so she's in the 100% percentile. It's just silly, considering I'm so short.

    We moved her off the Shetland for a few reasons-- the...

    I LOVE the video! You're little girl looks great!

    And thank you for speaking up, I'm really glad to know I'm not alone and that this happened to you as well. It just means I'm human...

    LOL NOTED! :-)

    I did look into Pony Club, the closest is an hour and a half away, but I keep checking to see if another has cropped up closer to us!

    Thank you everyone (MVP- good analogy --I'm good with those).

    What I'm hearing is that the little kids (granted I don't know their age) going over the jumps in near perfect forms that I see on...

    Feel free to keep posting idea's and personal experience but I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has already responded!

    2ndyrgal, lol....well she's 4'2" and my 9uyr old is 4'11" but point taken.
    (I'm 5'2" btw)

    So the consensus is "put your hands up and slowly back away from the show ring", and "she is 6, let...

    WAIT--- what are those games?? I'm desperate to find new ways to entertain her (yet help her) at the end of a lesson!!

    We've had the new pony for 2 weeks, and one of those weeks we were on vacation/sick with a stomach bug, so she's only had a few days in there that she's been able to consistently ride. Prior to...

    lol! No offense taken, I think I need some very blunt honesty -- it's why I posted <grin>

    I really wish there was a class in between the 14 and under and lead line; something more fair, like 8...

    I'm normally just a lurker-- reading, absorbing advice and chuckling at funny stories, but now I have a question.

    What were your kids doing by age six, and/or after riding for over a year? I’m...

    I have a soft spot for grey's and it tends to cloud my judgement, which is why I wanted to a group consensus before I talked to the hubby.
