Australian Brumby Challenge ©

Brandy has settled into her new life so beautifully, just taking everything in her stride she is so interested and learns so fast. We start each day with a nice walk in the bush with three ponies five goats and two whippets,we have stops along the way to graze the fresh grasses. I  started the week leading Brandy and one of the other ponies together now I can lead Brandy and ride bareback on one of the other ponies. In the round pen I started the week working on her feet initially I needed to use the leg rope now she is picking up all  4 feet on touch with me clicking and treating good responses. I have now been able to trim her front hoofs.I have introduced the roller she gave a couple of little bucks to see if she could remove it and then settled  to lunge moving freely forward. I have since added a tarp to it she responds, like "okay what's next"! I have ended   the week with Brandy happy and confident with me jumping on her back and trotting freely left and right around the round pen.
