Riderless performance

Not everyone shares my love for rider dolls.  
RFR Silver Crescent gallops across the finish line at Mt. Pleasant Meadows Race Track…without his jockey!
It's hard to believe, but there are some people who prefer to show their models riderless. 
That's fine, I suppose, but it still looks weird to me.

After all, everyone knows horses won't perform without a rider on their back!

    1. It's very hard to give training advice without actually seeing the horse (pony) and rider in question. Do you know someone who can help you? Even if you're confident in your abilities, it's always helpful to have a second pair of eyes (and hands!).

      That said, I would probably spend a couple days tacking up the pony and lunging him. If he responded well to that, I'd go ahead and climb on. I'm a pretty capable rider, though. If you are at all hesitant, you should get someone to help you.

      Hope that helps!

    2. I know that he needs to be tacked up but he buckes cause he dosent like the tack but he also dosent like the bridle too so i dont.know what to do and he sweats very easy so we have to stop every second

      he has is also really fat cuz he eats alot Of graze...sorry if this bothers you with my questions :)

    3. I'm not bothered, but I think I'm not the right person to help you. It really sounds as though you need a trainer or a very experienced friend. Your pony may have been ridden before, but from what you're describing, he needs to go back to the basics and be re-started. It's a big job, and if he's bucking, professional help is in order. You don't want to get hurt!
