Haha thanks! It's hard because I feel bad having to be so tough with her but rearing is a bigggg no no. I think it's partially my fault though because when she's bad I give a quick tug on her halter with a firm 'eh' and If she is still acting up I hold on longer which then she kinda does a rear but it's like she backs up really fast on her hind legs and goes up. But whatever, it's still a no no and she gets lunged. You would think she would figure out its just easier to be good! ;) but then again she was a pasture puff for a year or more so I'm sure I'd probably act the same way if I were her lmao.
But I think she Is trained really well because she's super responsive to leg aids and the two times I've rode her it was only In a halter and lead...I haven't even put a bridle or saddle on her yet. I think being in a halter and lead rope alone for her first time in a year is saying alot. And her jumps are so scopey it's great. She's going to make a cute little pony in the end!
And this is the official-ish Flopsy update thread so I will definitely be keeping everyone updated !!
Here's a picture from yesterday when I rode her for a bit.
How do I look on her? She looks so skinny in this picture. Lol my legs hide her fat tummy.
