Thinking about Hackney ponies for sale? If you are looking for a new pony, the Hackney pony can be a great and rewarding breed to keep. Although Hackney ponies have somewhat of a reputation as being difficult creatures, this is only the case if you do not train them properly. To find out what training steps to take after you have found your pony for sale, see the following guide.
• These ponies for sale need to begin their training immediately so that they know you are in charge. Assert yourself as the leader by taking an authoritative tone and assuming confident posture. Pop the lead rope to correct bad behaviour immediately.
• Tie your new pony to a pull-back or ground tie so that he learns patience. Tie him up for shorter periods at first, and gradually increase the time until the pony successfully remains tied up for up to 2 hours.
• If your Hackney pony behaves badly while tied up, do not be tempted to untie him. Leaving him tied shows that he must behave himself and he will learn patience and some discipline.
• As soon as you have established discipline in your new pony, attach the halter and lead rope and lead him around in your pen. Release the lead rope from the middle of the pen and leave the halter on. Tap your lunge whip on the ground behind the pony to make him move forwards clockwise.
• A combination of voice commands and the whip should be used with Hackney ponies to get them to walk, trot and whoa. Your pony can then be taught to walk in reverse by using the whip in front of him. Use the command “reverse”.
• After you have bout a pony for sale, your training sessions should be kept quite short. Gradually, build the time up as he becomes more obedient.
