Wink How's he looking?

Hey you guys!

Can you guys lay it on me at how my mini's handling skills are looking?

Tatter is a 10yr old over weight mini who had that bad mini behavior. He would rear, kick, bite, etc when you walked, or trotted him. So I started to walk, and trot his little ass around the arena and over standing poles. When he reared, I pulled his head back down and turned him in sharp turns. Soon he was walking, trotting, and cantering beside me like a champ.

I never thought to jump him untill he one day jumped over a bent pole instead of walking. I ended up propping it up against another pole and were at this point.

sorry about the crude equipment. I try to make ground poles and such but ran out of poles to use when he started to go through the small alley I go through. XD Soon I'm going to try to do some jumping out in the middle of the arena and than get him to ride with a long driving reins as a refresher from his younger days. He rides..just not very good.

I meant that I'll be behind him with the reins not ridding him!!!!

Also..I'll be getting another video done soon. Just have to have a free day. Might even do a few jumps in the feild just to get him out of the arena mode.

Once he gets back in shape, he'll look great! He's got some jumping ability in him and he does it fairly well!
