Trapper tries out his saddle and the pony gets a makeover
Trapper was not fazed at all by the saddle today. I think (from what I can work out) that its been a year since he was broken in.
I lunged him around a couple of times. all without a problem. Then took the saddle off and sat on him bareback. He wasn't quite so comfortable with that but he may have only ever been ridden with a saddle.
And I gave Dean's scruffy pony a bit of a make over. She looks so much better without the long straggly mane.
She is amazingly quiet considering how little she has had done with her. One of those special ponies with an older horse attitude.
She is for sale too if anyone reading this is interested. Rising 3 yrs old and measuring approx 13.2 - 13.3 hh at the moment. Been floated a couple of times, learning to tie up etc.
Super quiet and laid back attitude.
