AW: [RC] Teaching horse to pony - Hilga Höfkens

I addition to all the very good advice given.
If you get out on the trail it will get a little easier. When my ponyhorse (boss of the herd) starts giving the led hore funny looks I firmly leg-jield her back away from the other one and give her a hard time sidepassing down the trail (she hates that at a trot). Only need to do that once every ride, she gets that message quickly. Would be difficould in the arena due to all the corners.
Long rope is needed on narrow trails. If the led horse has to move behind the pony, it should be able to leave enough room.
Happy Trails
