He is a super soul who tried so hard to work with me and we ended the session with me able to put the bit softly against his lips and being able to touch the top of his lips. In every other respect he is an absolute sweetheart.
When I first met Theoden I was told that it took four hours to put a bit into his mouth. This little video shows you how he is today.
This spontifraneous chap is Arabian stallion Asrah, now twenty eight and owned for all but one month of that by Stephanie. He is an absolute darling and loves human attention.
Back over the Forest and saw my girl Blue hurrying across to the water trough out on the Forest. She's looking pretty amazing.
Some repetition of the basics with Twizzle but first we needed to negotiate the bunting.
That took seconds...
He seems to enjoy being brushed now and although he was a little bit wriggly without another pony to keep him company in the barn, he settled well.
He is now going into the trailer on a head collar and lead rein and we will continue to practice with him every day.
Apparently Henrietta doesn't mind being in a tight spot with me either.
