Our farm purchased these 2 gorgeous ponies to train to be lovely show ponies however we have simply not had the time. Poseidon is a lovely POA pony and Pegasus is a gorgeous Welsh. Both are studs but do not act like studs. They could easily be gelded. Poseidon is halter broke and is free lunging in the round pen. PegasusÃ¢s halter came off and he is a little more skittish so someone will need to rope him to get a halter on him or put him in a stock to put a halter on him. Once Pegasus has a halter back on he will be easily to train. He was leading before his halter came off. Poseidon will come up to you in the stall and heÃ¢s leading. Both are free lunging. Excellent home a must. Video clips available. Delivery available for the cost of mileage. 276-696-XXXX. Please text or call no emails please. $1500 a piece or $2500 for both.

The Welsh Pony and Cob are closely related horse breeds including both pony and cob types, which originated in Wales in the United Kingdom. The breed society for the Welsh breeds has four sections, primarily distinguished by height, but also by variations in type: the Welsh Mountain Pony (Section A), the Welsh Pony (Section B), the Welsh Pony of Cob Type (Section C), and the Welsh Cob (Section D). Welsh ponies and cobs are known for their good temperament, hardiness, and free-moving gaits.
Native ponies existed in Wales prior to 1600 BC, and a Welsh-type cob was known as early as the Middle Ages. They were influenced by the Arabian horse, and possibly also by the Thoroughbred and the Hackney horse. In 1901, the first stud book for the Welsh breeds was established in the United Kingdom, and in 1907 another registry was established in the United States. Interest in the breed declined during the Great Depression, but revived in the 1950s.Throughout their history, the Welsh breeds have had many uses, including as a cavalry horse, a pit pony, and as a working animal on farms.
Today, the modern Welsh Pony and Cob breeds are used for many equestrian competitive disciplines, including showing, jumping and driving, as well as for pleasure riding, trekking and trail riding The smaller types are popular children's ponies. The Welsh also crosses well with many other breeds and has influenced the development of many British and American horse and pony breeds.read more on Wikipedia
