I have finally moved to a new yard and have a job there, its a really good dressage yard/livery yard, with a few jumpers there, buck is the only welsh cob there, the only things near his type are the 2 fell ponies next door own, the rest are basically top quality warmbloods! I feel totally small now!
The owner and my new boss has agreed that buck will be a fantastic horse once we get his habits out, she says he isnt bad mannered or naughty, he just hasnt been educated properly, and I can see what she means.
She suggested I did some flexing exercises with him, and I can do it mounted or on the ground, as he is actually quite stiff in the neck, but he okay when a treats involved . She told me that using a treat to get him to turn and touch my toes would be good, but are there any others that I could do? I want him to be as good as I can get out of him!
