Wanted to share my good news with people who will understand my happiness!

Well, seen as the only horsey people I hang around with are at work, I can't talk to anybody else about horses! They either don't understand why I am so happy, or they just don't care

Okay, first one. One of the ponies at work is quite pushy and rude in hand, he snatches at grass and hay, drags you when he wants and often stops when he wants too. He is fine under saddle, though. Well, after reading all the advice on here, the next time he tried anything with me I got after him for it!! Any sign of pulling me, snatching food or anything like that, I sure showed him! And I am pleased to say that he is absolutely beautifully behaved with me now! He still misbehaves with some other people at work, I guess this is because he doesn't respect them, right? Well, he is fine for me now!

And the second horse. Lately his newest trick is to not come in when you go and get him from the field. He walks or trots off, bum in your general direction! Well, again, after reading advice on here, I got after him the next time he tried it with me. He eventually gave in and let me catch him. And now, whenever I go and get him, he actually comes over to me I have been told that he is still acting up with some other people.

I don't want to sound big headed, I am just really pleased to know that they actually took notice of me and now respect me

They always ask me how I can do it and they can't, so I tell them what I've learnt. They don't put it into practice though, not sure why when they have seen the results!
