Hi I am 15 and thinking about getting project ponies and reselling them. I was thinking about getting a welsh pony or welsh cross something really fancy for hunters.Do they sell well? And what are ur experiences with ponies? Are they very hard to train and want to get you off? I am pretty experienced.

Why is this here...?

But, any horse is hard to train. It's sterotypical that ponies are nasty because they just are, or on the other end of the spectrum, people think they're angels because they're little and can do *less damage. If you're 15, I would not suggest it, unless you got a trainer who has trained hunter prospects, but not nessciarly(sp fail) ponies, to help do everything with you. There is always a risk with reselling because of the market for hunters and horses in general. Right now, the market can get you a horse for barely nothing, but doesn't insure that you're going to be able to sell the horse and make money off of it. And you'll be more down in the hole of money if you can't afford to keep it. So, IMO, don't try it.

They are very easy to train. They also sell very well, like most ponies do.

Have you had a lot of experience with training horses? Ponies are just as unpredictable as horses, just because they're smaller doesn't make them easier. It's a huge commitment of time and money, and selling them might not be easy it all, depending on what kind of market you live in.

If you are going to get welsh ponies, you might have some luck if you work hard and are experienced. Welsh Ponies tend to have a good temperament, and are great for kids, and will do just about every kind of riding. If you train them well, they will probably sell good. Ask your trainer or mentor to give you tips, also. Good luck!

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find, how far they can go.
