I have a gorgeous Sec A lead rein pony who has been very successful in the showing world however, my daughter is now ready to come off lead and the pony won't move.
We love her so much and would rather not sell her if we could do something about it. She is 13 years ols and i'm wondering if she's too old to teach?
My daughter is only 6 and doesn't have much leg so we've tried a stick but she still won't move :( Currently she's just eating grass and through the winter she is fed blue horse hage and calm and condition.
On the lead she is lazy and has to be tugged round as opposed to gliding round like most of the others (this said she always does well?)
She will go off lead begrudgingly for older children and will hack out off lead quite happily but will only trot if the pony in front trots first.
WE LOVE OUR PONY AND ARE DESPERATE TO KEEP HER. Can anyone shed some light on what we could do to get her moving forwards. She is a super super safe pony and is 110% loved.
I am new to the horsey world and have little experience in schooling ponies...please someone SAVE OUR PONY!
