So we decided to go for our first proper long reining hack :)
Was abit unsure of how he would react as he has only done it a couple of times up & down the drive at the yard.

He was a star though and seemed to enjoy it :D

Thank you :) Not 100% sure...in the summer every1 was saying he must have some conny in him...but he looks more like a wooly mountain pony now :)
So probs a bit of Heinz variety going on :)

Thankyou!

I thought it was great fun! i loved not having to worry about falling off if he spooked etc.

Although he didnt spook at all! not even when i was running behind him whilst he was trotting!

Starting to get rid of his spookyness yay!!:)

Wonderful Wales
He's a lovely looking boy - he looks almost highland ponyish in the photo but thats probably down to his woolly coat:).

We are also fans of long reining. It's great to get the horses listening to the voice and going in front without fear.

It is a fab way of getting them confident like you said! :p

He looks like a different pony in summer...he goes bright white & looks all leggy and slim! *searches for pic*:p
