I have recently been riding/training a 9 year old welsh pony who is blind in her left eye. She has improved greatly since I’ve been working with her but does anyone have sugestions?

My horse is completely blind.but does amazing. Just teach them more voice commands like big steps, up, down, and lots of reassurance. Spend a lot of time on the blind side. My horse goes trail riding, swimming, and he’s amazing
My horse actually has the same problem. He is blind in his right eye. The most important thing is trust. You want to show the horse that you are there for them and that they are safe. Hope this helps 😊
