13th April, 2007

Kennedy and Piper are really fond of each other.

I ran my first Handling the Wild Pony course in the New Forest today. Clare Kitcher (equestrian Artist) and her husband Steve (professional photographer and owner of the New Forest Equine Directory) let me work with four of their yearlings - one untouched and the others at various stages of their education. We had great fun and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. By the end of the day we had headcollars on all of the ponies and progressed to leading technique. I also covered groundwork for confident babies and leg handling. So, so tired though now. A quiet weekend ahead with Kennedy going home and just one new horse coming in.
