30th January, 2017 Buffalo Soldier

Another short journey to Claire's this morning to work with her spotted pony, Barney, here seen under the protection of his friend, Arnie. Since my first visit two weeks ago, Claire has been concentrating on increasing his confidence so that by the time we arrived this morning he is now happy about being in the bigger barn, being asked to move away on a single line, and going out and about.

Today we worked on long reining him and being particularly cautious about the reins going over his back. As a result we had very little worry and he did very well.

I hadn't met the Shire horses before. This one was wearing her breakfast...

...and it's always nice to see the Percherons.
