Brecon horse sale on the 22nd, unless covid rules stop it
And take your daughter's life's in their hands. Seriously, don't go to a sale unless you know what you are doing. There are reputable dealers about, and crooked private sellers. Sales give you little chance to try out. Good ponies are like gold dust and pass through contacts. Try the pony club first.

Buy everything with your eyes open , gives folks an idea of price if nothing else. Pony club people arent all saints either .

minefield :rolleyes: ....vet check essential...some dealers will allow a trial period subject to a non refundable deposit.....a lot depends ,as said, on the ability of the girls.....or what they want?....a 'happy hacker /pet'? could be a cobby type and cheaper than something they can go to shows/jumping

Thanks for replies .
Both my girls are very novice and like Werzle
suggested have been for riding lessons.
Originally thought this was the best scenario
but been thinking about things lately and want them to have some memories of their own childhood pony.I'm in no rush so will keep quietly looking for something suitable .

Contact your local Pony Club, they will often know of outgrown ponies, often good ponies will go out on loan which isn't a bad idea. Take someone experienced to view, get it vetted. Don't expect sellers to let the pony go on trial, I never did. A lot can go wrong in a short time! An honest seller shouldn't object to you trying the pony a few times. Just beware, good first ponies are like hens teeth and will sell quickly. Our girls have grown up now but loved their 'horsey' years although I can honestly say I don't miss them at all!! (Especially when one was competing alot)

Easy to sell a chemically calmed horse and claim it’s quiet and perfect for beginners.
Get it home and find you’ve bought Pegasus!
Usually folks get the horse home and feed it scoops of grub for a few days and then moan they cant ride the "wild thing", 99.9% of happy hacker ponies/horses will live on adlib hay and a double handfull at most of pony nuts.
