My pony's name is Magic. He is an arab/welsh. He's fat too. Whenever I canter, he bobs his head up and down. It's annoying because I don't place well in shows. He isn't lame. Also he decides to stop cantering because he thinks it's ok and he does not respect me and my trainer tells me to beat him with the crop if he does that. If I do that, he tries to buck me off, and he senses that I'm scared.
