I have left her halter on for now. I will continue with the tips that yall have given me. Thank you so much. This isnt a great pic but it is the only one I have right now.
DARLING Pony! Reminds me of a Welsh I knew when I was growing up!
Great advise given here. Another thing to keep in mind is...time. It seemed to take months for my mare to *really* trust me...and she was a hard catcher too! Now she walks right up...or if she's having a snotty, independent day, I drive her away. She's so nosy, she just can't stand that....

Not sure if this would help, but since she will stand by you if you are going to give her love, what if you bring the halter/lead in with you and just hang it on the fence or something close by that she can see it, but its not being used.
And then just go and love on her, scratch her and all, and see if she sniffs the halter.

She might get interested in it if its just laying there.

Again, I'm not sure if this would help or not, but the other advice seems great!

BTW, the pony is just adorable!
