    So I think my pony hates kids...

    So I have a part loaner for my 13.2 newfy, she isn't a great rider and doesn't ask a lot of him just a walk, trot and canter around. He sometimes refuses to turn with her, instead just curling his head around and running through his shoulder. He often decides he doesn't want to trot on or...
