Q is for Quarters. The back end of the horse which does quarters in and quarters out, never, ever when expected or required but at will spontaneously whenever you want to go in a lovely straight line. Quarters are the difference between a highland pony and a dressage tests. dressage highlands have lost the book!

s IS FOR sPANISH WALK. This is also appendix I. This is what a talented pony can do when totallly in a strop about not being able to E Eat and having to W Work. Also comes in the appendices as a talented evasion as performed whenever free walk on a long rein is required

P for plant. something one can do at will whenever one is asked to go in any direction except home or towards food bowl!

F for Fooooooooooooooooooooood!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

B for buck. This equated to a formula - too much energy from rider - forward movement = rear end upward movement as quick as possible. Result = walk quietly for several days.

E for energy. Sorry, whats that?

W for walk off. Guaranteed to cause concern whether owner trying to mount or trying to lead or trying to catch or trying to prevent eating!

R is for Rhodedhendrons (how do you spell it?!)- rhoddies make excellent places to jump into mid schooling session to evade doing more work.

'L' is for leaning. Soon after we got Syd we took him into the indoor school (his 1st time in an indoor school ever). Typical HiPo - not phased at all. However when asked to do some work he sidled up to the wall and just leant against it very gently :whistle: so that his rider couldn't use their leg at all. Totally oblivious to the other leg!
We had to come down on that one strongly to stop it being a habit.---but how did he work it out so quickly?

R: Is for Reverse Psychology, this is an advanced evasion for the more experienced Pony (P: Planting and S: Stubborness to be mastered first)

R can be used effectively both during schooling and out hacking: whilst out on a hack have a blast round the grass tracks and bridlepaths but always save that bit of energy for a brisk walk home. On the return journey walk very fast (note: breaking into a trot at this stage is a waste of energy) making your human think you are rushing home, inevitably they will turn you round thinking this will teach you not to rush home, use this as an excuse to gallop off up the grass track away from home confusing your human who will then resign themselves to allowing you to walk home briskly.

Note: Once your human is confused as to why the plan didn't work, you can slow down to a leisurely stroll for the remainder of the homeward stretch. :heh hee:

:heh hee::heh
hee::heh hee:
Greymolly's reverse psychology reminded Moony of one of her favourites before her retirement:
R is for Reverse - a really useful gear to get "stuck" in when you decide you have gone far enough. If you have a really stubborn or stupid human you can take it to the next level of being stuck in reverse with no sense of direction - low hanging branches and the trunks of trees are very effective things to reverse into and if all else fails, find the nearest steep embankment and start to reverse quickly down that!!! At this point most humans will get the message and you can step out happily back home in the direction of your choice!!

Likewise Ladybird.

In one of my posts someone said Thyme must be working from the book of evasions.

Actually her only fault is an unwillingness to move, no rubbing along walls or backing into something. We do have a silly sideways walk which I can now stop.
