[RC] re: teaching to Pony - Teresa Van Hove


You have to teach MANNY to pony (the other horse)  He CANT be allowed
to show any aggression when you are on his back asking him to do
this.  YOU ARE THE HERD BOSS whenever you're doing anything around the
horses and Manny needs to leave the herd dynamics for when he and
Canon are by themselves.  If it takes more than Bonnie's advice to
accomplish that, you'll have to find a way to carry a crop or
something so you can put the 'fear of you' into him.   You cant blame
Canon for fearing that Manny will escalate to kicking him if you allow
the initial aggression to happen.  


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.
