I have been looking for a pony to lease for one of my S.S. kids. I didn't think that it was going to be this difficult but there doesn't seem to be many out there. I've tried dreamhorse, bigeq, equine, horsetopia, equinenow , local equine papers and word of mouth.
Can you all think of any place else? I didn't think it would be that difficult to find a med SS pony.
Does it have to be a lease or might they buy? Bernadette Thomson was telling me about a nice medium pony back in September. She was selling it but with winter upon us she may lease it. I know she does lease them out sometimes. Just a thought. She is a good one to contact for ponies.
A friend also has a great pony that took her rider from short stirrup on up. They're selling that one though.
My DD's old pony is up for lease again. He was champion many times in SS at WEF and was reserve at the Hampton Classic this past year. He is a saint and will make any kid look like a star. He's spendy, though but if they have a budget I can send you the link for him.
I don't own him anymore, so can't help in any way other than providing the link....
Not sure if you are on Facebook but a lot of quality ponies are being marketed on this FB Page now. In case the link doesn't work, it's a group called "Just Ponies - for lease or sale", if you do a Facebook search it should come up and you can just ask to join. Might be worth a look:
That reminds me - my daughter tells me about a facebook group called Junior Rider News. Many of the posters on there are local to us. Many of them list ponies for sale but leasing could be an option too. I think it is a closed group but you should be able to get on easily. The kid that started it was handing out cards at a recent show at Radnor.
I had a medium SS pony for lease that just came home from PA! Darn. If you don't mind the drive, consider looking in Canada: all I've got is people asking either if I know of anything for lease or if I know of anyone looking for a lease. The sale market here hasn't picked up a whole lot but there's lots of leasing going on.
There's also a facebook group called "Just Ponies" that's solely for ponies for sale/lease.
I know of a 9yo, 13.1 1/2H packer for lease - cheap because the owner is at college, but doesn't want to sell the pony yet. Pony did Pony Finals in the Green Meds this year and finished something like 32nd. Loads, clips, ties, bathes, and wins in Pony Pleasure. Neat pony. Solid bay with no white. This is NOT my pony, but belongs to a friend. Located in Charlestown, WV.
