Meet Stoney, the most awesome lesson pony. Stoney turned 20 this year. He has been teaching riders of all ages for the last 12 years. Although he has been barefoot his whole life, he has always had the tendency to be a little tender following a trim. What I really appreciate about June is how she really takes the individual horse into consideration as she works. She is always willing to listen to both the horse and his owner in making adjustments to the needs of the particular horse as well as any changes that may come up do to shifting environmental conditions due to the seasons and other unforeseen factors that may affect the horse's comfort.
As a matter of interest, both June and I enjoy Hempfling's What Horses Reveal. Stoney is the Modest One in Hempfling's archetypal approach.
