Well done and what a lovely picture! Much as I adore dogs, when they come hurtling up towards you/behind you it can be unnerving! Good on Cooper for keeping his cool :cool: :cool:

I think it helps if there are dogs around on your yard, there's a huge variety of dogs at our yard (from a Chihuahua to German Shepherd and everything in between) mulling about and all our horses are really chilled when they meet dogs out on hacks. :)

you two look so happy with each other in that photo :)
you sound like you're having a great time. You must be starting to really trust Cooper now. I know an awful lot of horses which would have been really spooked in that situation so well done Coops!

Domane, I think the ears just look big cos of the bleached chav forelock. He needs some diamond earrings in there though:)
My goodness what a gem of a horse! I know I always mention Duch, but last week she saw two german shepherds 50 yards away on a leash, and she did this massive 180 spook on her hind legs, the eejit! You'd never think she was 17, and you'd never think she'd hunted, you'd certainly never think she hacks out with dogs all the time!
He's coming along great, so pleased its going well

Cooper is such a star. Not many horses would of just stood there. Maybe it all happened too quick for him to even realise what had happened. :eek: :p

That is a lovely picture, you must frame that and put it on your lounge wall..:D


Has anyone seen my mind?

Great, Dee, and great to hear 1.5 hour hacks are becoming the norm.:) He is a lovely boy isn't he?
