    What are you hoping to show him in?

    I would suggest that you learn how to soften him up, rather than pulling on him, which it looks like is happening in every picture, whether it is you or the cousin. He will only get "harder" in the mouth the more you all pull on him and may then become difficult for the little one to handle. If you don't know how, you may need some help. Perhaps lessons for your cousin?

    He is a very cute pony for sure.

    My cousin sometimes have tendency to pull him sometimes to stand. That is only because he has tendency to pull bit. He naturally normaly looks like he's being pulled though on the bit. Like when im trotting and cantering him.. although akward for me to feel in right position.. I generally keep my reins long and loose.. to let him have his head and I barely feel any contact on the bit, but then looking back at pictures and vids.. he just naturally puts his head in and it looks like its being pulled. It strange aha. Cousin can't have lessons, as her parents wont pay :/ shame. He's really sensitive of the mouth, yet he has tendency to, ii don't know if he grabs it or something, but then he just goes his way.. like in the menage as he's learning. He seems to drift from sides.
    Thank youu I caught him wrong time in one pic, as we just been for gallop and that, he was wound up.. I wanted to get pic of them both but he was ppulling to keep going on :L that's why mouth open.
    I was hoping to do inhand showing, mountain and moorland etc and when cousin learns more and so does he undersaddle.. to try some little showing ridden clases, lead rein and that to start off with thanks x
