But Love Is Key

horse giftA couple of years ago, I was riding Bob, a POA pony, for my aunt who runs a boarding facility. Bob had been for sale during the time I was riding him. When I first got on his back he was an unruly and unmuscular brat. But, by the time he was sold he was a muscular and well behaved pony. I was very proud of myself for achieving this.

A week before Christmas I got an early gift. A four horse trailer rolled up my drive way. I really had no idea who it was. I thought maybe my mom sold one of my horses? I ran outside in a panic. A man walked out of the truck and it was the owner that sold Bob. He opened the trailer and a young 2 year old POA walked out.

"He is all yours." the man said.

I was really excited. I got this pony because I had done so well with Bob! He told me to be careful because this gelding was also a lot of work. He said several trainers had tried to train him, but is was no use.

Now, that unruly POA is a muscular four year old named Jasper. The funny thing is that I had no idea how to train a horse, but with a lot of love you can make a champion. Today Jasper is fully trained and has won me several champion
ribbons. Basically what I am trying to say is that you can do anything if you put your mind to it and are determined. But love is key.

Horses don't learn from love, they learn from pressure and release of pressure. You can sit there and love a horse that kicks all day long, but the second you turn your back he's going to clock you one. Love doesn't train a horse and doesn't make a difference in the long run.
