Alright - I'm training a 5 y/o green hunter pony. I rode him two days ago, and he ended up getting frustrated & throwing me off over his head (we were playing follow-my-trainer at a canter). He also is very impatient, much like my own horse. I can handle it, but this pony has no respect. So, I figure I'll go out to do a day of groundwork on Monday. Then maybe a 10 minute w/t ride. I know I'm going to put him in the round pen to work on our vocal cues. I might lunge him in the ring over oxers. He's jumped small cross bars, but I would like to see how he'd take a jump from the ground before I ride him over it.
I know I want to play the friendly game, the porcupine game, circling game, squeeze game, and maybe sidepassing. I need ideas. Please help? (: I'll post pictures. He's a cuuuuute little Welsh cross. I'll be his main rider, since I'm "the perfect pony jockey", so my trainer says. :]
