That's totally me. Teddy has a long list of things he probably "should" be able to do, but I spent several months getting him to where he was good enough for me to do what I needed to do with him (and he had problems with almost EVERYTHING at first), and I've sort of slacked off. He needs to be able to
- be tied. He's OK with being tied, but not great. I keep putting this off because I tack him in a stall, and I hold him for the farrier / vet, so it's not super crucial. Maybe we'll work on this when the weather cools off.
- take oral medications / dewormers. This is what we're actively working on right now and he's making slow steady progress.
- canter without getting anxious.
With Pony, we're really working on his canter. We're both a little off-balance at the canter, and the combination makes him unhappy, which means he acts up. But we're defiitely working on it. Also, as always, he needs more muscle and less, um, pony-shapedness.
