Fetish Pony

The Basics
Leading - Guiding your pony by the reins (or lead rope) while in front of the pony, and generally, slight to the left. Be careful not to pull the pony's head down and remember that the bit is in their mouth. It can be painful or uncomfortable for the pony to walk with his/her head lowered and the bit being pulled from their mouth.
Driving - Guiding your pony by the reins while directly behind your pony. It is most common to hold one rein in each hand so that the signals are getting to the pony clearly.
Lunging - Guiding your pony in a wide circle, with the Owner/Trainer as the pivot point in the middle of the circle. Be sure to keep some slack in the line. A taut lunge line calls the pony to the Owner/Trainer.
Moving forward - Use a light flick of the reins or whip or a voice command such as "Walk" or "Git Up" when driving a pony. Ponies typically begin moving forward at a walk. If you want your pony to go faster, add another voice command or flick of the whip/reins. Flicking the reins or whip when leading a pony may be painful or uncomfortable, so just a voice command is recommended.
Moving backward - ALWAYS halt the pony first. When driving, pull back evenly on both reins, slow and steady until the pony begins backing. When leading, put one hand on the pony's shoulder (and optionally one on his/her hip) and gently guide your pony backwards...DON'T PUSH. Whips are counter-productive to his command. Another option is to tap the right or left shin so the pony knows to take one step back until you halt them.
Slowing down - When driving, pull back gently and evenly on both reins (or lunge line if lunging) and release. The pony should slow one gait (i.e. gallop down to canter or jog down to walk). Leading should generally be done at a slow pace, but if not a "Slow" vocal command is helpful, since a pony may not be able to judge the Owner/Trainer's own speed.
Stopping - When driving, pull back gently and evenly on both reins until the pony has stopped. You may want to use this in combination with a "Whoa" command. When leading, you may want to only use a "Whoa" command, since pulling the reins or lead may speed the pony up. Standing in front of your pony may lead to a collision, so besure you are off to one side.
Tapouts - This is the ponyplay version of a safeword. Since ponies can't speak with a bit in their mouth (as most have), Owners/Trainers and ponies need to arrange a tapout that all understand. One of the most common is three taps with the "hoof".
Yes & No - Since ponies can't talk, by asking the pony Yes or No questions, you can still communicate while staying in the pony role.
Yes = one tap with the "hoof" ... No = two taps with the "hoof"
