FROM TRAUMATIZED DANCING PONY TO KIDS PONY
Sunday was very hard to rehabilitate. The first 6 months we could hardly touch his body. Every day we held him with two people and a third groom would brush him. He reared up in the crossties and kicked and bit to get away. Sunday was clearly an ex-dancing horse.
The training of the dancing horses is often done wrong: they tie the horses up and beat their legs untill they start ‘dancing’. Since they can not go away from the beating these horses are the most traumatized of all horses we have at the stables; very difficult to touch their bodies. It takes a lot of patience to gain their trust again.
Sunday also had a problem with eating. He couldn’t move his head down because of a big abscess on his neck.
Now Sunday is taking the small kids for rides outside or in the arena. He loves to do natural horsemanship because of all the cuddles in between.
SUNDAY HAS BEEN SOLD TO AN AMAZING FAMILY AND AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICS BELOW - HE IS VERY HAPPY WITH HER NEW HOME!
