I got talked into it :lol: Pony already knows how to show jump, its me who needs to learn :) Seriously though he is sharp as a pin but I feel so safe on him, its very strange as my confidence is low but there is something about this little chap :love:

Great to see some action footage. Looks like he'd be good in a speed class with that economical style!

Had a 'fun' hack out this afternoon in the :sun: He is a funny little horse, gets very tense at times. We went further than we usually do on our own and went through the village that he isn't keen on. He got very tense and kept trying to spin for home and spooked at everything :random: Then nearly jacked it all in to walk past a bus shelter (which obviously had trolls living in it!!) But just sat quiet and kept asking and rewarding forward and we got there. He was much happier once we back on the bridle path. Had to pass through a narrow area along a passageway between two fences to make a round route and we didn't fit :rofl: So had to get off to lead but it was so overgrown he was going to catch his saddle on a fence post. Had to take the saddle off and lead him through! :doh:

Got through the passageway and let him have a rest and eat some grass whilst I tacked up again and got back on. He was then much calmer on the way home.

Great thing though, he was almost impossible to catch at first, now he is actually coming to me to be caught :love:
