Sannsi arrived two weeks ago at Neigh Bother she is with us to start her education and be backed. Proving to be a good girl. First time for this today and took it with ease .
A lot of people always ask me why I do this part on a hard surface in a barn. Everyone has their own system, I like to make sure they feel safe and secure the fist time I sit on them, yes it is only for a few minutes, but I want it to be a chilled experience. Yes it is on concrete, but they have a channel up the shed a destination, they have their friends and it is a familiar environment for them. Does it work every time, NO, 😂 does it work most of the time , YES,🙌
This little mare, is lovely to work with and is a people Person which helps a lot. Putting in the ground work and helping your pony to trust life is a massive step and makes our jobs a lot nicer and much more achievable. Every pony is different and you adapt your system accordingly but the bare bones and principles stay the same. I love youngsters as every day is a school day, and for me that’s the best part! 🥕
