Retraining an out of shape pony..
Well, any tips? I might have landed myself a new gig retraining a pony for show season, and as confident rider as I am, I feel like I might do something wrong! The owner wants her to get rid of her habits (rearing, etc) which I am fine with, but preparing her for show season? I don't really show, so I don't know what is expected. Its a hunter jumper pony and I haven't trained in hunter jumpers for a couple of years now, but I know the basics. The first few weeks or months, she just wants someone to come and lunge her regularly to get her back into shape and moving again. Anyways, please help - this is an oppertunity that I have been looking for but I don't want to mess it up!
