    Agree. Very cute. Have you tried to get him to stop getting up when he is in a sitting position?

    That is ADORABLE! I love it :)
    It looks like you're using food rewards - all for that - but another way to teach them to roll over or lay down with clicker work is to spray them with a hose so they'll roll, then click and treat right when they lay down and using a verbal cue like "lay down" when you see them just about to drop. Repeating this a few times.

    Either way you and your pony are adorable! I love watching people enjoy their ponies

    Thanks! Wierdest pony in the world - she doesn't roll. Practically never on her own. Can work her into a food sweat and turn her loose in the arena, will not roll. Even after bathes last summer, nada. Spring mud however has covered her head to tail...

    I'm usually not a treat person, trick training is the only time I feed them by hand and as soon as I show her my flat empty hand she stops expecting them. With some horses treats are a bad idea, Justus has never pushed or gotten lippy because I only use them for tricks!

    Cherie - yes, I can halt Justus from standing at any point :) she'll stay on her belly and go back on her side if I ask, but this video I just wanted to show the new trick and allowing Justus to stand again is just as much of a reward as the cookie so I cued her to stand by lifting the lead and kissing

    Very nice!

    I wish I had an indoor arena today. It was -36 with the windchill (I'm in Sask).

    Yeah, mother nature is not being kind to the prairies this year! Hopefully the cold snap breaks soon!
