Ponied Ivy today ... what's your method?
Took Whiskey and Ivy out on the road today, went for about an hour (30 minutes out, 30 minutes back). We live on a dirt road that you can head over to fields and then trees and a wash... we'll need to build up to that, but that's the plan for the next month.
By the time I got home, my left arm was sore from pulling Ivy back to my knee, she wants to get even with Whiskey.
Whiskey was great today, a little snorty at first, but she hasn't been ridden for a couple months so understandable. She's about as bombproof as a four year old can be, so even when she's snorty she's very well behaved.
Enjoy the pics, but please comment - how do you pony so your arm doesn't fall off by the end of the ride... I don't want to work her down before we go because I am trying to protect Ivy's two year old joints. Thanks for your help :)
