Oooh I like Leo!! I love his coat, what a beautiful boy!

I think you need to carry a crop with him :) But lets just say this Junior - he is teaching you something, so horses like him are a horse to cherrish, because they make you a much better, smarter rider.

I would have a hoot with him!!!

^^ Ha, yeah. Baddish/misbehaving horses teach you the hard way...Which can be a good thing in a way. It will teach you to be an alert rider. I'd carry a crop, too. Just to keep him knowing who's in charge ;)

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

He's beautiful, but a total brat.

haha i DO carry a crop with him! and I'm certainly not afraid to use it! when I use the crop, everyone in the arena knows. haha. he just refuses because i give up and stop riding 1/2 the time.

Junior, my namesake, was the exact same way. I rode that pony for close to a year before i figured him out. Once I stopped letting him drag me around on the flat (literally drag, like OUT OF THE ARENA) and "beat him into shape," he was the best pony ever. He had a reputation for being a biting, kicking snot - i had to pick out his hooves backwards so that he wouldn't bite my butt.

Oi, most of the horses I ride teach me something. Junior and Leo to keep riding no matter what, Jack taught me to stay relaxed, Scooter taught me how to fall, Brook is teaching me how to bend&stuff, and IO taught me to hang on for dear life. hahaha. I love being stuck on the horses no one else wants to ride. I hink being put on them is why I've only fallen off twice - from the beginning of my riding career, I learned to sit deep and HANG ON. works pretty well (:

see? I told you I digress!

ooh, i found an actual picture! haha, Leo always gets the short end of the stick when I ride him.


i think i thought he was going to refuse, so I turtled up and stopped riding...therefore making me look like that when he actually jumped. woops?

This is one of Hero's first time jumping and my first time jumping since like 8 years ago
Dont touch meeee


My friend wanted me to jump her horse - she was in a dressage saddle.
Pete ALWAYS jumps like this, she never jumps him so he was strong, and I always end up out of the saddle like this (he was a lesson horse you think he would be used to scary jumps)


yeah not me but we went to a horse show today and caught the perfect time - naughty pony!
