I was lucky to have the company of Julie, who is now immersed in a university course, to help me with this and Zoe and Zelda. They were tied up outside for the first time since they came back to me and seemed very relaxed about it.
Over the last couple of days I have introduced both ponies to long reining, something I never imagined we'd get round to in their very first week. They were totally unfazed about the two reins. We have two things to work on - accepting direction, and learning a cue, since both ponies are a bit immune to body language and have been left to their own devices for a while.
|Yes, well, that's novel|
