Id like to tell you about a rescue pony iv been trying to break in.
She's a 6 year old pony about 12hh. She's very nervous of people and has been attempted to be broken in several times! She's been sent away to be professionally broken and has dumped every rider!!
We recently discovered she had a very bad back problem, which now has been sorted, but has left a lot of physcologial damage. :(
So iv sent alot of time trying to get her to trust me, she's super! Got an amazing cheeky character and I decided today was the day id get one of the kids on her... keeping in mind the last time one of them got on she reared nearly fell over backwards and took off round the school bronking!
She stood by the mounting block, a little jumpy, but me and rider calmed her, after the rider laid over her a few times I told her to get on....
With one clean leg swing she sat on Maisie, she jumped and was a little unsure. But she calmed very quickly and then the rider got off.
Im so happy with her, its the first time a rider has got off willing! Lol without being thrown.
Such a big step for the pony
Thanks for reading xx
