Petra and Theoden are inordinately fond of one another and I thought I would make the most of it. I have been training Theoden to pony off Petra and soon I will do it the other way round. In that way, I will be able to ride Petra in one direction and Theoden in the other with a brief tack change in the middle. Theoden has been ponied before so he knows to keep up without any pressure at all and he has such a soft expression. Petra isn't entirely sure that another horse should be that close so we have been working on gentle walk and trot transitions and turns so that she can see that he isn't going to suddenly change his mind and kick her.
