    Bravo! You and your pony are proof that with patience and understanding, any horse can be trained. There are no "lost causes"!

    Dashy, I would change that to:

    "You and your pony are proof that with patience, understanding great skill, determination, a lot of money and 2 very very experianced trainers, any horse can be trained."

    I have litteraly taken my life in my hands several times training this pony and it is not something I would expect anyone else to be willing to do or have the skill/trainers/money to be able to do. At one point he was with a trainer who charged 280 a week and he was there for 10 weeks, his vet bills are in excess of 4000 alone not including the stabling at the horsepital or transport costs.

    Well today my instructor popped Reeco on the lunge whilst I rode him (the meany took away my reins). We did lots and lots of trotting and he was happ, relaxed and swinging along with his ears forwards.

    He even let me do up his girth with me onboard (prior to rebreaking he would have gone out from under you in spectacular bucking as you went to swing your leg forwards!

    So happy things are going well for you! You have an amazing story! To give the time, money, heartache, and probable injury, all points to a very strong person, who believes in what they can do. Good for you! Looking forward to more updates.

    I love hearing stories like these! I'm glad to hear that he found a great home like yours with someone who had the patience, knowledge to get a good trainer, and the financial means to see the struggles including health through! I hope to hear more about your progress :)

    So great to hear. He looks great, and I'm glad you never gave up on him! Shows just how well things can turn out in the end. I think we do need more pictures though. ;)

    Actual injury, Reeco has caused permanant damage to the nerves in one of my knees and muscle damage to my mums leg when he paniced, drilled me into the floor and went over the top of my mother. My knee has the sensation of being under water when I touch it which feels very strange.
    And I have a good few whiplash type injuries and a minor concussion from hitting the floor.

    Sorry to hear about actual injuries. I said probable, meaning that you knew that there was major possibility of getting hurt. I admire you even more for not giving up even after the injuries.

    Thankfully i'm not in any pain from it, it just feels very very strange and I don't like people touching it.

    I've had far worse injuries from other horses (some of whom had no excuse to be difficult, unlike Reeco)

    Wouldn't it be so much easier if horses could talk?

    So many times I hear people saying that their horse is just evil because they "know" he is not in pain. Yet so many times I hear how these "bad" horses have been discovered to have trigeminal neuralgia (nerve pain on the face) that means a wind blast into their face is excruciating, or kissing spine or a fracture. Personally, I will never give up on a horse until I investigate every possible area that I can influence and find out what is truly bothering the horse.

    My bias is that horses will not act violently unless they are reacting to pain or extreme fear, whether past or present. Of course you must be very careful, because a more minor pain could trigger the memory of the severe pain this horse has experienced and he may over react to pain in the future.
