Hiya I have some pictures of a frends pony baggie.
The pony was broken in by my self he is a sweet little gildingand he is about 13hh.
The cruxt of the problem is that thay moved to another yard and there was this guy who thought he was a driver.
The only problem baggie was still green and had only clocked up a few days of driveing so to speak.
This guy in genral harnessed him up and he was long lineing beside the cart and baggie was not happy for some none reason and started to rear.
Well this driver pulled hard on the reins and he reard up over balances and fell on his side and realy bent this guys steel shaft.
And he complained to my frends that the pony had dammaged his cart well I would personaly give the guy a thumping for what he has done personaly.
Ok on the on set of class to day thay have a nylon harness.
We layed it out on the floor and I started to work on baggie.
He had only a head colla on and I was armed with an iristable pack of polo mints.
Well he did not like me near him I gave him space so he started to rear and I gave him space I also was walking with him geting him use to me again its been 3 years ago since I broke him and he is now a nervous wreck.
So we started to pick his feet up andgroom his neck and under his main to try to let him except me well we went on for half an hour and we made lots of head way and I brought him to his harness.
We put on his breast collar roled up the traces.
We then put the pad on (driveing saddle)and back strap and crupper.
I was a bit shocked as the breeching was the wroung way round as the breeching its self was the loin strap scratching my head I asked who dod this thay said the guy who drove him who had the axedent.
Well that figurd.
So I pulled it out and put it right.
Next was the bridle we put it on well we found the answer why he reard well it was lucky he did not bolt he could see behind him.
So we made a few holes in the bridle and got to work on him.
We used the breeching straps and buckled them to the traces as he felt the breeching move as well as the collar.
