I've decided to try and go through the "breaking" process with Prince, I need him to trust me. Prince (AKA Phillip) isn't a bad pony, but a scared one. He spooks daily , but I knew that when I got him. He's willing to listen and work, and he gets bored easily (hes a Left Brain Extrovert). He eats a lot (pulling branches of a trees when walked on the trails), but I don't have a riding ring. I do have a cleared area where he could be ridden on a lunge (im so more advanced then that lol), but I don't completely trust him and I don't think he trust me either. He was abused from a weaning to a two-year-old, so that doesnt help either.
He needs to be worked and I just don't know what to do with him. I have walked him by "large scary tarps", across wood plywood, I jump him (on the ground), I do the 7 games, and I groom him while he eats almost daily (he loves being groomed), and I tack him up. The other day I tacked him up and sat on him, he walked around nervously and tried to eat quickly.
What can I do to calm him down and get him to trust me? Or games to play with him...
