That's exactly what I did too! The first day she was a bit nervous but the second day she loved it. It certainly made a lot of people smile, I met several people around where I live and she got lots of pats and attention.
Aunty-well, you have a very smart pony, I would say! I think my Bruno is pretty smart. I still have not tried lunging, I am embarrassed to say. Might be one of my new years resolutions! Congrats on your shetti! I would also love to see a pic!
