I am not quite half way through my trial period with the red pony, and already it’s been a busy time for both of us.
He came to me quite foot sore after getting trimmed too short, so much of the first few days together was managing his feet so he was comfortable. After getting front shoes and pads put on he now seems 100% comfortable and I’ve been able to get in more rides, and last night jump him for the first time.
The trial has been an interesting experience so far, centered around jiving what I know about him with what I feel about him. Sometimes it feels like he’s speaking German (eh, Swedish?) and I’m speaking English, at other times we get closer to some kind of mutual understanding- Genglish?
The next plan for us is to go school cross country. This is something he’s never done before, but will be critical in ascertaining whether or not he wants to be an Event pony. He looks so good in event tack, that I have high hopes!
He’s super cute. 🙂
Such exciting times for you guys, glad you got around the initial footsoreness and wish you the best of luck and fab fun @xc schooling 👍
So cute! I hope he works out! Can’t wait to hear about xc schooling.
Good luck on the XC course!
Fingers crossed that XC schooling goes well!
Annoying that he showed up foot sore. Poor guy! He’s super cute though and looks like he’s going well for you! Fingers crossed!
He has the sweetest face in every pic! All crossables are crossed!
It sounds like things are going pretty well so far. Fingers crossed that he loves xc and you get a new pony!
He rocks XC tack!
