From The Magazine: Of Ponies, Papers And Pushing The Limits

When you see a pony at a show, can you be sure how old it is? 

It seems a simple question. If it’s a rated show, you look at the pony’s U.S. Equestrian Federation registration. Go online to, type in a horse or pony’s show name, and pull up that animal’s age, breeding and owner information.

I've been a working student, a barn manager, a horse camp counselor, taught in a beginner lesson program, a groom, an assistant trainer and, most recently, run my own full-blown eventing business. I've ridden to the CIC*** level on two different horses and been named to the U.S. Equestrian Federation Developing Riders Lists three times.

He’s never shown on the East Coast. He’s not pretty. $50,000 seems like a lot,’ since that was the top end of my budget.

“He told me, ‘I’ve already tried to get the price down, and they’re firm at $50,000.’ ”
