I've just bought a new pony, and clearly she's a left brain extrovert. http://files.parelli.com/Horsenality...3-769C59B9998D
She's a lovely fun ride, but gets really easily carried away, and can get a little scary to ride (as she almost forgets to listen to my body language, and just goes into hyper drive, she doesn't gallop off or anything, just trots and gets faster, and faster!)
I'm getting her neck used to flexing, so that if ever we're hacking, and she does take off, I can do a one rein stop... however, I don't wan't something just for emergencies, I just don't want her to take off at all
I make sure when she does start tanking off, I relax my seat, to try to send her the signals to slow, but she doesn't listen at all!
I have only had her since yesterday, so I understand that she may not be used to me yet, but when do ground work with her, she's extremely responsive, which is why I was happy to ride today - as she was showing signs that she's reading my body language.
Any ideas, constructive criticism welcome (as long as not too harsh please!)
