[RC] Teaching horse to pony - Jennifer Judkins

Hi all, looking for some advice.  I'm retraining an ex-racehorse and would like to introduce him to trails by ponying him off my experienced anglo-arab, Manny.  I have triied this in the arena twice.  Things go well until Manny (the more dominant) starts giving Canon (the ponied) a hard time (ears pinned, butt checking, etc.) and Canon lags behind or just plain stops.  They are out together all day and stalled next to each other.  Will they get used to this riding arrangement or am I asking for trouble?  I would appreciate any thoughts, insights or experience.  Thanks. 

BTW, WAY TO GO HOWARD!  Love the story.  I would ride with you anyday!  I too. love the adrenalin and joy of going fast!  Jennifer.
