The pony loves to play around and learn stuff. Today he stepped all four feet up onto the platform. We're using clicker training with him. Horses just love it!
I'm also trying to get him to pick up and give me an item. He's at the "pick up" part, but isn't so good at letting go of it, unless he tosses it, which he likes to do :-).
He is learning "in", "on", and "around". He puts his feet "on" the platform, "in" the bucket, and goes "around the cones.
He is also learning to tail a person up a hill.
