Think Like a Pony
 
Hey everyone!

My name's Alice and I'm new to the forum. I ride a 16 hh Andalusian and we train through the Think Like a Pony method!

Has anyone heard of this before? It's fantastic! Thunder and I have learnt so much through it and it's so fun. It's all about building a relationship on the ground and then translating your communication to the saddle. Thunder and I event together and it has made such a difference. He's now not scared in new environments and we're doing so much better under saddle.

There's a demonstration at Bishop Burton College on the 12th of June that I'm going to to see Lynn Henry from Think Like a Pony in action. Is anyone else going?

Love Alice xx

I've never even heard of it. . .

Psst, Jolly, I think this noob may be nothing more than a spambot, trying to sell her obscure training method.

Besides, why would I want my horses to think like ponies? Ponies are evil!!!

If my horses think like ponies then I won't be horseman enough to ride them. I HATE ponies.

*shudders*

The LAST thing I want is for Soda to start thinking like a pony! Could imagine a 1300lb PONY???? It's like my worst nightmare!

LOL me too, well he is actually a hony. Nuthin wrong with ponies :-( (covers Hunters ears). Hmmm maybe if I got him to think like a horse, yeah thats it. Any nifty training ideas on that?

Piffle, Casper's 14.2 h so is considered a pony, height wise. He's an Arabian though, so is officially a horse.

When someone says pony, I think of Shetlands and the like. The smaller the critter, the more deviant, brilliant, and evil-genius they are.

I stand by my statement that instead of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it should be the Four Ponymen, because ponies are adorable and absolutely evil.

We aspire to grow to 14.2. I have to stick him this week but we are hovering below 14 at the moment.
