Well some parts went ok, and others did not. I did get the mare out of the back pasture while keeping the gelding in the back. Got her into the arena, groomed, saddled, and lunged. Did the back end move in both directons and also the front end, (disengage the front and hind quarters?) and made her back. All went very well. Then I got the bridle on and even managed to get on with the help of the mounting block. She stood still for that, which shocked me, I thought we would have a problem right there, but nope. Then I walked her completely around the areana. Did a couple circles at the walk and then this is where it doesn't go so good. I tried to get her into a trot. Managed to do it for a few steps and that was all.
So the trainer came over and we put her back on the lunge line and I rode the trot. I felt kind of sick to my stomach after that. I was wearing my helmet and I always get too over heated and sick from the heat. So the trainer took over and wanted to lunge her at the canter. Well we discussed this and I happened to mention that she was suppose to be trained as a driving pony. So the trainer hooked her up with the lunge line on both sides and ground drove her all over the arena! She is a great pony! She did much better at the driving then she does in the saddle.
Have I mentioned how much I just love this mare. LOL
