Instructions for Training your ABC Pony.



**General instructions for training**


* Your Pony must eat Feed to train: Pull, Speed, Stamina, Sprint or Jump.


* Rezz out a bag of Feed within range of your Pony. Set your Pony to eat Feed and make sure that it eats some. Your Pony must eat a bite of Feed before training or your Pony will not go up in skill stats. If you have been training for around 10 minutes and have seen no increase in the skill stat then your Pony has not eaten the Feed.


*Turn off and remove any Animation Override’s (AO's) you are wearing, right-click your Pony and "Ride" your Pony (Do NOT wear from inventory).


* Left-click your Pony and choose Training on the menu, then the skill you want to train, your Pony will tell you in local chat:

"Your Pony Name: This Pony is now training for stamina"

The hover text will change to orange.

Note: if your Pony is already has orange text saying its set to train in the skill you want to train, you will need to select it again to activate training.


* Press Page Down on your keyboard to toggle the Pony to running mode (it will tell you in local chat that it's in running mode). Your Pony has to be in running mode for its skill stats to increase.


* Your Pony is controlled by the arrow keys on your keyboard or the ‘WASD’ keys. Keep your Pony moving to train it, do not stop until your Pony "talks" to you. Watch local chat for information regarding your Pony.


* Your Pony will tell you in local chat when it has gained a skill level by one point:

"Your Pony Name": Skill Update:: Sprint : 1 / 41."


*When your Pony is tired and needs to rest you will see this in local chat:

"Your Pony Name: The Pony completed its training period. Now it is in Cool-Down mode."


*During Cool-Down the Hover text will go green, when your Pony has rested sufficiently its hover text will change from green to white and will be ready for its next training session.


**Special Instructions for Jump Training**


NOTE: If you are training on a prim ground surface or platform your land must have the following land settings:

About Land > Options > "No Pushing" must NOT be ticked.


When you press page up to jump, your Pony will not jump up like it does when you’re riding and training on the natural ground.


*If you are training jump then you need to make your Pony jump to train it, press your ‘page up’ key on your keyboard and make the Pony jump as you run along, its easiest to do this in a flat open area, without trying to jump anything in your way, if your Pony has just started training it may not be able to jump very high.


**Special Instructions for Sled & Cart Training**


* Follow the instructions above to place your Pony into training mode for “Pull”


* Left-click on your Pony and choose Equipment. Choose "Sled" or “Cart” the Pony will rezz out a Sled or Cart behind the Pony. Wait for your Sled/Cart to fully rezz out, give it 10 seconds after you see if fully rezzed before you go to the next step.


* “Stand Up” From your Pony.


* Right click on your Pony and "Take" it to your inventory. Then right click and wear it from inventory.


* Allow the Pony 15 seconds to load before you move or do anything. Do not move until you can touch the Pony and get the drop down menu.


* Right click on the Sled/Cart and "Ride". Your avatar will sit on the sled/cart and the Pony will position itself in the harness.


Note: if your Pony is already has orange text saying it’s in the skill you want to train, you may need to tell it again.


*Your Pony must be running for skill levels to go up.
