    Default Wanted in MD, large pony

    A friend of mine is looking for a large pony for his 15 year old daughter. As close to 14.2 as possible. Their goal is to do pony races at Shawan Downs and other places so does not have to be a packer type. This would be perfect for the pony who is too hot for most kids to ride. This would be a good, forever home that I can personally vouch for.

    Scroll down to Sugar. She's right at 14.2 (hasn't been "officially" sticked so if that's a concern, you'll want to check).

    Definitely not a packer type and it does say she's lazy, but that's with doing ring work. She's got a bit of a competitive edge in the field, though, so racing might just be something to turn her on.

    Shoot, that one looked good but when you clicked on her page it says she sticks at 14.3 These are pony races so they do have to measure. Thanks for looking!

    The page says "about". I honestly don't think she's ever been sticked, but I'll be glad to do it next time I'm up at the farm.

    Ok let me know. If she measures she may work. Thanks!

    I have a stocky medium that I am trying to find a home for. She is at least 13.1. I am 5'1" and have no problems riding here cause he barrel takes up my leg. PM me if you want more info.

    Talked to Christine and she said she'd be shocked if Sugar was over 14.2 but reminded me she'd had an issue with luxating patella early on when the rescue got her and that might make her not a good candidate for the races.

    Day's end farm in MD has a few that are exactly the size you're looking for and some got speed.

    Last I heard they're currently in the middle of managing a strangles outbreak but they would be a good choice to check once that's over.

    I have one that may be of interest. Sticks at 14.1, not "hot" but very forward going and would probably love to race. Easy keeper and fun to work with.
