  • We work a small pony in a harness rig and it is I have to say pretty fun. The young girl is a special needs child and that child lights up when it is lesson time. Her parents said she has changed 100% percent over the last year and is much more outgoing and confident.

    Thanks for the link it has alot of interesting information. Is the backdrop horse one of yours?
