Chances are, your fave pony’s already won your heart – he’s your favourite, after all. Or, if he hasn’t quite convinced you yet he’ll deffo have you dreaming about him all day very soon – ponies are good at that. But has he realised that you’re the BFF he’s been waiting for? Follow these steps to improve your bond and show him there’s no better friend than you…
Start with the basics and give him what he needs to survive. It might not sound like an interesting ingredient, but no pony’s going to be happy if he’s missing out on something he really needs. Make sure he’s in tip-top health and has enough food, water, shelter and time with his friends, and you’ll be off to a great start.
Spend as much time with him as you can to help you work out what he likes best. This doesn’t only mean riding him, because just being with him is really important. Start by watching him in the eld, seeing what he spends time doing and how he behaves with his eldmates.
The more you know about his personality, the closer to him you’ll feel, and before long you’ll know him inside-out and back-to-front, and be able to predict his every move.
