I have a male miniture horse aged 7mths. i am thinking of doing shows/ pony rides. can anyone tell me any info on registration, tips, training, insurance, costings, we are in maryborough qld.

Also his mum is up for sale she is 8yrs old, unbroken, when you catch her you might be able to put a halter, she will come to you if you have food. brown all over, paddock fat. she loves her grass. sunny sunny sunny sunny

If hes only 7mths old, you have about another 3 years to wait untill he is old enough to break in to ride.then only little tiny kids could get on him.Is he a colt or Gelding, If a colt you will need to geld him so he is safe for the kids.
As far as mini horse regos Im not up on them as I have mini pony.
Id say you will need some sort of insurance if you are going to do pony rides,but not if you just show,your membership covers that.
Hope some of this helps

Do you know his breeding? Are his parents registered? If you only want to register him to show, you should become a member of MH&PE (www.mhandpe.com.au) or IMHR (www.minihorseinfo.com) or AMR (www.ausminreg.com.au) - these are all very affordable associations that will register him even if you don't know his pedigree, and he will then be eligible to be shown at open breed shows and ag shows.

As Kimmini said, you have a few years to wait before you think about using him for riding, but you wouldn't want to use a colt for children to ride - he would be better off gelded (geldings are also free to register with IMHR/MHPE - not sure about AMR). In my opinion, no colt/stallion should be trusted with a child as even the quietest can have a tendency to bite or lash out unexpectedly. The 'pony ride' business is a tough one to get into as you will need your own public liabilty insurance to do this, which isn't cheap (this is for NSW, so can't really speak for QLD but I would assume it's the same). Children under 18yrs cannot handle/ride a stallion at shows, so I would also assume you wouldn't be able to get public liability at all to use one for other people's children to ride.

I am only responding to the pony ride part of the question. You need more than one horse/pony to do rides, at least 3 or 4 so you can rotate and let them rest. They also need to be very calm as you are going to have kids running up and jumping around them. A 7 month old still has bone developing and you can damage the growth leading to problems later if too much weight or stress is put on his body.
Getting pony ride insurance is also the hardest insurance to get and most companies wont touch you because you are dealing with horses and children and in their eyes it is very dangerous combination. The few that will give it expect you to have won the lottery. It's not a business to go into to make money unless you can do rides every week and have a guaranteed minimum earnings from each event.
