I am currently on the lookout for a haflinger pony for Maddy. Haffies are so sweet and bombproof.I know this is the perfect first mount for her. we are joining the pony club at the oaks so she can learn how to ride and care for a horse the proper way. even though I learned through the get on and hang on method, I don't want her to learn that way. actually I don't think her personality type would allow her to learn that way. she is much too much like her father and very thorough and analytical. thank God. anyway, if anyone knows of a haffie for sale let me know. I don't want a super hunter or dressage trained pony. I want a kid trail ride pony.Although, if the price is reasonable I would consider a hunter.
