Project Pony
 
Almost every year, I get a project pony & ride them all year, and then pass them on to someone else in the Summer. . . Two years ago I had Horus, last year I had Milo, this year I have Roger. :-) Roger is a bit different then what I have worked with before, a little more difficult, and in the beginning we just weren't working out for each other. So I gave him the winter off, took a lot of lessons, also worked on riding on my own, & improved my seat and leg a lot. On Saturday I got back on Roger and he was AMAZING! I feel like I have more control of him then ever, he hasn't exactly "changed", but he is just paying more attention to me, coming back more easily, softening more easily, ect! I think I'm going to hold onto this one a little longer, maybe into next year, because he needs the extra work, but I am very proud of him & excited to see what kind of potential he has :D
Cookies to anyone who read this novel :)

I'm happy to hear Roger is coming along nicely :)
Project Ponies are a challenge, and i'm impressed you didn't pick the easiest one to work with. Grats on improving your riding and I give my best wishes that you and Roger will progress even more

Roger sounds like he will be the perfect pony after some work. Good luck and keep us updated on his progress! :D

Thanks guys :-) He really is a great pony, but he just get's a little strong/hot sometimes.
