Spirit Of Odin has been looked after in a most caring way since he was born and never known any unkindness. For the first 8 months he lived with his mother Molly sharing each day together. Then after he was gelded he went to live at a rescue centre with some other ponies and a few shetlands. This is where he started to bond very closely with his now owner ( Natural Horsemanship Trainer) Ben Collins.
Odin has done many hours of pole work and obstacle training along with more advanced liberty training. This is working without head collar or lead rope attached to the pony. It shows how much he wants to be with his owner as he could if he wanted to, just run away.
Spirit Of Odin is now almost 7 years old coming from a rescued background he has become a most wonderful pony. Odin has been trained in groundwork since he was 4 months old he leads, walks, and loads like a dream pony, so much so that if you leave the ramp down on a trailer Odin will just run inside it. He was recently introduced to doing some under saddle training which he has taken to in a great way. He now goes out on hacks and is still l earning all about being ridden…
He has never has a bit in his mouth and has learnt to travel everywhere with just a head collar on. Being bitless is lots more comfortable for him and all his other equine stable friends have been trained to go bitless. You can view some pictures of Spirit Of Odin below
