    Keep his head at your knee/thigh, no crossing from side to side and no nibbling on the pony horse! It is helpful to be able to move the pony horse around with seat/legs them you can essentially use both hands, one on the lead and one with a crop to control the ponied horse.

    Yup, need a lot more lead training with the little guy and fix his sticky feet...
    But it went better than before! We got several yards of decent walking, one spot of him refusing and swapping sides and then some more yards of walking before he was done with it altogether.
    Worked with my guy on some things and then worked with the little guy on his sticky feet afterwards.
    If the weather allows, I'll work with him every day for a couple weeks and then try ponying again.
