We all have our favourite ponies to ride or work with at RDA. It may be Cheeky Charlie who a lot of our young riders started to ride on, Mr Reliable Speckles or Candy who is a bit more forward going.
So imagine if you aren’t a very confident rider and you are given a different pony to ride for a change. Tell the rider that they look really good on this new pony and how much it suits them.
Then watch as the rider suddenly starts to sit up straighter.
