Good first horses come in all shapes and sizes. Training, temperament, and seasoning are all important factors when you’re trying to find just the right partner to get your child started in the saddle.

But, we want to know…in general, which do you believe is most often the best choice as a first mount for a child: a horse or a pony?

Please complete the poll, then check the results of this survey later in the magazine or at the Horse&Rider Gallop Poll Results Page.
