-- Good Bye Ben --

Hey,

Well Ben one of the minitures I've been working with is leaving this week. There are a few reasons for this, he trampled me and they have a two year old daughter. Who plays near the paddock and what happens if she ducks under the fence to get a ball and then. . ..

He also attacks Chinga and Merlin the other mini. There is some of that in the video, him just chasing them around. I'm going to miss working with Ben. But he isn't safe with the little kids, so its time to say goodbye.

When I first started working with Ben he could barely walk on a lead, let alone lunge or jump. By the way I didn't hit him with the lunge whip once, I'd tap the ground behind him because that was where he would stop and spin in so it would remind him not to. The owners spent alot of money trying to get him trained, and I've found that I've gotten further then any of those trainers, I believe that it is just because his finally understanding what we want done. This makes me proud that I've gotten somewhere, but its time to say good bye.


Sir Success. Eventer.

I was bitten by a miniature once... Size isn't everything I guess. Lol. Anyway, if you liked him, I'm sorry he's going away:(

Yes he is a gelding, although Merlin is a stallion. His a lot quieter then Ben.
