backing a horse for its 1st time

Hi everyone,just thought I would write about me and my pony, she is 13.2hh and she's a cob,she is absolutley beautiful and I only got her a month ago,she is 3 year old and before I got her she had never been touched, she is so sweet and caring,and when I got her their was an automatic bond, I went shopping for her and bought her everything,all pink and made her look and feel like a princess,after 4-5 days of having her I was attached and whilst she was tied up being groomed outside of her stable I decided I was going to start leaning over her back putting weight on it.. I did so, very lightly and she never flinched,so I kept putting weight on it,heavier and heavier each time, eventually I mounted her fully and she loved it,she turned her head and kissed my leg,she was so sweet, later that day when she was used to me being on her back I was led around the school with her for 10 minutes and she thouroghly enjoyed it, now she's being sent away for broken in, she is having so much progress,I love her so much!! Show your horse/pony the love they need,and give them the time and trust and effort they need,and they will show you the love back and care for you!<3

Except for the horses who don't and never will. Some you can slob love, affection, and effort over them all you want, and they're still hateful or indifferent to humanity.

You got lucky, which is good since it's pretty obvious you're extremely young, inexperienced, and have a touch of Black Stallion Syndrome. We all had it at one time or another, but dealing with difficult/headstrong horses soon made most of us realize that horses are big, strong, fear-flight animals who can seriously hurt you if you're not careful.

I hope your pony continues to be a sweet girl for you.
