Question: How much does it Cost to Buy a Pony?
Ponies might be smaller in stature than horses, but that doesn't mean their purchase or upkeep costs are proportionally smaller.
The cost of a good pony can be the same or higher than a horse. Expect prices for suitable first ponies to be about $1000 and upwards.
The initial price is only the beginning. The only savings you might encounter with a pony are feed costs. You'll still need to buy good-quality hay, but you won't need quite as much. You won't find any savings in board, veterinarian, farrier, and dental care.
