TOABH: Ermahgerd

Yay, number 13!  Five more after this guy!  Props to those of you who have steadily posted and stuck along - I feel like this was a tad bit more than my list-making self had anticipated.  I'm sure crippled pony has nothing to do with that.

What is your pony's absolute favorite riding activity?  What makes those little ears perk and causes the knees to lift?  Let's just focus on the favorites - we'll save the bucks for next week.

I think Archie likes gymnastics.  I know he enjoys jumping, when I don't fuck it up for him, but I think he really enjoys those exercises that make him think.  Smart pony is smart.  When we've successfully gone through a series of trot poles, I can feel the Kid strut.  He's proud.  He knows he did well.  And he enjoys those things.

It might be a bit of a stretch, but I also think that he enjoys trail rides.  He gets up and antsy when we're with a group, but when it's just us, he stretches out, flicks his ears and will even occasionally chew.
