Mystic pony of course!! After him being ridden by another girl for the past week and going this weekend to OHSET and being a total packer pony (who was very done with it by the end of the weekend, understandably!) and having yesterday off I hoped on him today bareback and walked him around the block with Alanna. Then when we got into the arena I took his bridle off and went bareback and bridleless! I was hoping to have him ready for the demo we are doing in July but in reality we could have done it today! He was perfect. We walked, trotted and cantered WITH steering! So next on the list along with perfecting our bridleless skills is to teach him how to bow and lay down on command. We have 3 months so I think it is do able, he is a smart guy!
Then we could also schmooze our dressage judges after our rides by bowing to them, how cute would that be?!
