Tips for riding a fast pony ?
I ride a fast pony and for us half-halts, control and collection is SUPER important for us, because if I don't slow him, he'll bolt at a gallop when I ask for a canter😂 Sometimes I wonder if he's part thoroughbred ? Maybe he has some racehorse in him😂
Make sure you're using half halts correctly, if you are eventually your pony will learn well there's no point of speeding ahead because she's always going to bring me back and slow me down 😊
Make sure you keep your heels down and don't lean far in the saddle, sit where your back pockets would be
Be in control
