21st February, 2013 Not to be Sniffed At

We've known since the outset that Jessica is a sensitive pony and that she is particularly affected by noise; she has lived a very sheltered existence at home.Today Charly gave a little sniff while he was riding her and this was enough to set her alarm bells ringing. She contained herself very well but it did mean that we spend the rest of the ride sniffing at her to desensitise her. We'll have to do  quite a bit of work on this over the coming couple of weeks before she goes home.
