Tinker! This little pony was so much fun today. Vid makes more sense when you turn sound on! We practiced doing jumps and laying down right after, which is not easy to do because the horse has to regulate their emotional energy. What’s more, we laid down all over the arena - in wet sand and dry, sun and shade, near the fence and out in the open. Tinker did so well proofing her lay down 💪 I was very proud of her! 👏
I hope you like this video of Tinker in all her cute glory. It’s up close and personal - that’s what happens when you don’t have a camera crew!
Tinker is a 6-year-old rescue pony. She foundered back before we got her. We are having fun teaching her tricks and putting her big pony brain to use.
Sometimes studenfs who think they are witty call Tinker, “Stinker” or “Tinkersmell” instead of Tinkerbell when this 40” pony outmaneuvers them. It really bothers me when people act like it’s the horse’s fault that they were inconvenienced. In reality, those people just need to develop more horse-handling skill.
An animal’s name is somewhat sacred to me. Even if you’re too inexperienced to realize it was your haphandling that caused the horse to want to do something other than be with you, I think it is important to know that an animal’s name is meant to represent them spiritually - it’s their bridge to the human world. Don’t soil a horse’s name by fiddling with it unless you are prepared to see what happens when you name your horse Stinker!!! Horses should be treated honorably. ⭐️ Follow to see more photos of rescue horses and trick training. ✉️ Message me if you need help with riding or training. 💛Share if you know a horse who you wish had found Pony Pros first!
