Thanks all! It's taken a good bit of work but he's come on so well. My little one is besotted with him and they will be doing their first lead rein show in about 3 weeks time - have just organised to buy our outfits off somebody and they should be here by the end of the week!
Letagrlshowu - She is on the lead rein. My husband was leading her (and pushing the baby in the buggy). I'm somewhat struggling to let her off the lead - I don't trust him quite yet. I'm going to organise either an able child or small adult to school him throughout the summer. I'm too big, and my little one doesn't have the seat/ability to keep him right.
flytobecat - It is VERY difficult to find a good one. Hard to find honest people as well. We had bought her a gorgeous welsh type pony last year and were told he had done this/that/the other and I had to send him back; he was so scared of people that he would bolt when anybody would walk up near him.
Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.
