I have decided to take the leap - my daughter (6) has totally outgrown her pony that she was riding on a lead, and I think the sensible next step for us is a bigger pony that she can learn off lead but that I can ride too so it is exercised when she is busy at school especially with winter.

Any ideas of what I should be looking for ? Ideally I want something super safe, knows their job so can turn their hooves to everything from dressage to mounted games, but has a sweet manner on teh ground because she likes to spend time with her ponies. I am instinctivly leaning towards a gelding!

Anyone had this type of share before? Thanks
