What age is everyone breaking in their New Forest ponies?
Hello Olivia,

I don't know about New forest ponies but the average age for breaking in horses and ponies is 3 but the real work starts betaxeen 4 or 4 depending on the horse's growth.
However you can starts with ground work and the basis as soon as you can.

The most important thing is to be patient and listen to your horse. Some horses are "good students" and other need more time.

Good luck :)
