I am coming over from the dressage forum. My 11yo daughter has outgrown her 12.3 hand hunt pony. This is a fabulous pony (6 seasons with the Moore County Hounds), will go first flight or hilltop and has started several kids hunting including my daughter.
When we bought her I didn't set out to buy a hunt pony. I was just looking for safe, fun, reliable. Now my daughters #1 priority is that the next pony/horse must fox hunt.
Any advice for where or how to focus my search? I have put out the word to our local hunt that I am looking, but no results yet. I have looked at Dream Horse and various websites like that but there are virtually no hunt horses listed.
Maybe try hunthorse.com and the MFHA online mag. - can't remember what they call it but I think they have a classified section on line. I know hunthorse.com had an adorable pony a while ago and they probably have more. Also, what about the local pony club sites? Maybe some of those little event horses have hunt experience too? Good luck!
