You’ve adored ponies for your entire life, possibly you did some trail riding as a young person and perhaps you got the opportunity to revive your adoration for steeds sometime down the road. At that point the day came in your late 50’s you had a the chance to purchase your first steed. Is it accurate to say that you are to old to go up against this excellent, great, ground-breaking creature?
As I would see it, you are not, I state that since I moved to the nation at 57 and purchased my first pony at 58. What did I think about when I was picking my steed? First I thought of what I was prepared to do physically, in view of that I figured I wouldn’t need a steed over 15hh, anything bigger than that makes for a greater fall and conceivable broken bones.
My second thought was the steeds age and personality, a decent old bombproof steed that I could move myself once again into riding with. At that point there is breed I wasn’t whined about breed, simply in light of the fact that as a young person I rode various breeds, and how quiet a steed is, is progressively about how they are prepared and treated not the breed.
I was thinking Quarter pony or Standardbred, I rented a Standardbred in my late 30’s and he was extremely quiet yet he could be exceptionally difficult. One breed I never considered was a Pure breed, I figured this breed might be path over my head and from what I’d seen watching horse hustling, my thinking was awfully very hung for me.
In the wake of contemplating all the above I began searching for my fantasy steed, and I discovered him. It didn’t take long for me to experience passionate feelings for a pony I found in an advertisement on Facebook. This is the place I begun scrutinizing my mental soundness, this pony is 16.1hh 11 yr old off the track pure blood, he wasn’t ridden since his dashing days and I didn’t know whether he was sound.
In all actuality I couldn’t have cared less, I began to look all starry eyed at the steed in the advertisement and I fell significantly more enamored when I met him. No doubt so he’s a pure blood, he needs reinstructing and as a delight horse he is green, however so am I. I used to ride feisty ponies however I was 16 not 58… so I ask myself “What were you considering” my answer is I wasn’t considering, I just realized this kid was for me.
So now the following inquiry is am I excessively green and too old interpretation of this mammoth errand to get my pony sound enough to work with and in the end ride. In the event that I had no involvement with steeds by any means, maybe it might be too enormous an assignment for me. On the off chance that there was no such thing as the web, again it might be too enormous an undertaking for me. The thing is I trust I can do this and I adore and trust my kid and I realize he cherishes and confides in me.
Something else to consider is wellness, I am not excessively unfit but rather to begin foundation I have to venture up my wellness which I am chipping away at now. Age is only a number, on the off chance that you have the energy, the affection and the responsibility nothing is unthinkable. Figure out how to peruse your pony and hear him out and dependably make wellbeing a need, steeds are huge incredible creatures and can do us some genuine harm, regardless of whether inadvertently.
