Starting ponies

Julie has been breaking in ponies at Taminga for 25 years. Respect for the responsibility of preparing ponies for young riders is never underestimated.  Julie’s small size is considered a bonus , as many clients prefer not to have a larger person start their young ponies.   A background in dressage assists in producing  ponies who work forward into a soft contact from the very start.
