Wanting to know more

Hey, this website is great for me to do whats right for me to train my horse. Im 13 and i look after a welsh pony who used to bite but since he has been gelded he seems to be fine,

But i was wondering if you could teach welsh ponies to jump over logs. And also can you ride welsh ponies. He's a white welsh pony, is just above 1 meter tall and has 2 sisters. He will be 3 in September this year. I really want to do more with him this year and get him well trained. thanks

Welsh Ponies

First lead him over the log so he knows what he's going to do. Then, when he's been broken, squeeze him with your thighs to encourage him. If he refuses more than 3 times ask your friend if they have a pony to lead you over the jump.

My Opinon

To me any horse or pony can do anything you want it to do. I start riding the young horses at age two. All I do is light ridding. I work on making them soft in the mouth light trail rides. Despooking them is a MUST. As far as jumping you dont want to jump him untill he is five. You want to make sure his knees are fully grown. At 5yrs old horses or ponies are fully grown. You can start him on the ground. lunge him over small logs don't push him to go over high ones. Don't over do it. When he does it right let him have a rest.
