Welcome to the gang Charley! :)
Guys - DD had a MAJOR breakthrough today on the pony... can I just say I love this pony and what she has done for us... she was walking/trotting around in the round lunging ring (in Ireland I can't justify calling it a roundpen, as it isn't used in the same way) when out of nowhere she asks if she can ride in the big arena tomorrow if its nice... my jaw hit the floor as only 3 weeks ago she wouldn't get off the lunge line.. heck 5 months ago she had lost so much confidence she didnt ever want to ride again. I told her she could go on in today if she wanted, and off she went. She didn't just walk around the entire arena, she was asking for a trot, circling and properly trying to ride. *happy dance* Did I mention I love this pony???
Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.
