I have a pony who is around 5 years old. When I got him he was 3. At the auction someone rode him bareback and everything.
Well about a 2 years ago my mom tried to get on him (we had never ridden him before then.) And lets put it this way she was severely injured. I decided I would never try to ride him again. I've been having alot of fun with him anyway but I really miss riding.
I would like to train him and avoid anyone else including myself getting hurt. I have fear and I need to get over it. Its been a LONG time since anyone has tried getting on him.
Can someone please tell me steps in training him?
And tips on how to overcome my fear? I have a friend to help.
And please no critism- I know I have made mistakes- any critism will be ignored and any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Sarah :)
