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.

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