Our NEW Bad Pony® Pendant Necklace is HERE!

BThe psychology behind our Bad Pony® Pendant Necklace from
Sports Psycologist, Dr. Nancy Bloom
She will tell you how it will inspire and empower your ride!

Patience, persistence and knowledge are key to becoming an effective rider and in negotiating a good ride. Learning to ride is a complicated process. It is both an art (feeling what your pony is doing) and a science (knowing how to tell your pony what you want). You must learn to be patient with yourself as you grow and develop as a rider. And you must be patient with your pony as you both learn to work together as a team.

Because riding can be difficult, persistence is also an important value. How can you deal with a sulky pony, one that doesn’t want to go or one that plays too hard, without sticking to the job no matter what? If you are able to stay focused on your goals, even when the going gets tough, you will be rewarded with a good performance and feel good about yourself and your pony in the end.

Finally, knowledge is essential to your success as a rider. You must know how to use your leg and body position to effect your pony in just the right way. You must understand your pony’s body language to know when he or she is happy or angry, tired or confused. You must also understand what you and your pony need to do to enjoy your trail ride, to have a good lesson, or to successfully negotiate a course or dressage test. Wear your Bad Pony® Pendant Necklace to help you focus on your goals of Patience, Persistence, and Knowledge. It will inspire a good ride, a ride that you can enjoy and feel proud of, and a ride that will help you to learn and grow.
