Chloe will go anywhere you ask her to, but if somthing is flapping or skidding across the road she imediately is on eggshells. I finally made the time to teach her to learn to tackle her fears, or at least confront them. A little tarp work before each ride goes a long way. She may perk up a little, but she doesn't lose her mind. I always rode through situations like these because they don't bother me, us addressing the issue has made her an over all better horse.
Bonnie and I have been through a lot in the past year. She has over come hurdles many people can't ever imagine. Together we took on a pony project that just didn't work out in our favor. As a trainer, I want the best for my client. When ponies or horses don't work out, I take it personal, but that's life and you don't always get what you want. The ponies we took on to train as rider/drivers just didn't take to driving. Fast forward a year, and Bonnie found her match, a beautiful Dales Pony she named Inky!
