    Looks like a very nice pony...definitely a sports car, no sleeping at the reins. Once you drive him you might not want to drive those slow ones again, it's hard to go back. ;)

    Just wanting to interject that "we managed" does not make for going to the next step. In other words- if you can't pick his feet up or groom him until he is standing perfectly still every time- he...

    NEVER TAKE THE BRIDLE OFF BEFORE THE HORSE IS COMPLETELY UNHITCHED FROM THE VEHICLE. I don't care how well you know the horse, or how long you've been driving. It is driving 101.
