Grant is learning more about ponies the last few days.

First he has to get the pony from the pasture and bring him over to the wash down.  Oreo was not too difficult because he just followed the other ponies.

 

Then they had to tie him up, brush him, and talk to him.

 

Then Grant wanted to sit on him while we waited for Mimi to come over.

Now it is time to walk the ponies over to where the saddles are.  This is a video of my 6 year old niece teaching Grant how to get his pony to walk on.  Training a pony is not as easy as it looks.  The pony must feel like the one leading him/her is confident and in charge.  Or naturally they will not follow.  Can you guess who is in charge in this video?  My niece definitely is!  Ponies can be very stubborn, just like my boys.  Luckily, my niece came by very confident and Oreo knew she meant business.  Off he went like a good little pony.  I am still going to have to work on this lesson with Grant.
