A tip for handling grass hungry ponies!

pony-eats-grass3

Out on a ride, enjoying the countryside, and down goes your pony’s head for some luscious grass.  He is eating as if nothing was ever quite so delicious and you are trying desperately to pull his head off the ground.  Try gently pulling one rein and squeezing your legs – it’s much more effective than pulling on both reins, but do keep both the reins in each hand. Don’t forget to scold him for his bad manners and remember to ask for grass reins next time.
