I ADORE having a spotted equine. I’ve always been surprised, though, by her dapples. Until meeting Comfort, I had never encountered a roan, spotted, dappled pony!
We had a brilliant little hack, I guess you’d call it, in Comfort’s rope side pull. Walking trotting and cantering in a little pasture. Doing some minor hill work, etc. she was great! Especially with the murderous sounding dogs, next door, barking at us, the 4 wheelers swarming to our left, and the road to our other side. I need to work on giving a clearer canter cue, but hey we are just getting started!
She was adorable, but her saddle pad keeps sliding when we canter. The half pad stays in place. I’m not sure what to do about that.
