This is the story of my quest to train my three Dales Ponies for classical dressage, primarily by using Alexandra Kurland's clicker training methods, with a touch of others such as Philippe Karl and Anja Beran thrown in. I turned to clicker training because I had come up against some issues that I didn't know how to fix and because I wanted to inspire them to become enthusiatic partners. Bella and Jack are all my own work and have never been ridden by anyone else.

Finally caught OH walking past while I was riding Jack and got him to take a few snaps. He told me that the camera battery had died after taking these few, but mysteriously managed to take some of his cattle afterwards! I didn't know he would be passing with the camera, so am definately not dressed for the occasion!

My lovely Jack, 7 years old now, a year older than Bella. I thought that he felt more mature than Bella and I think that he looks it as well, in the 2nd and 4th photos. Must admit to being rather pleased with the way he looks, especially in the last one! wub
