Haha alright well little happy moment. So my trainer gi came out to help me with outlaw as he needs a ton of work. So he started out very tense head straight up and prancy. We did one rein figure eights for a good 15 minutes till I got one figure eight at a relaxed walk. Once we got that we did circles on poles to get him to relax and pick up his shoulder on basic circle without trying to take off,once he had that down we moved to the barrels.
Now he started out throwing his shoulder to it and not rating at all. Well we circled it till I got one nice circle at a trot(got it down ace at a walk) and moved to the next barrel,rate him(one rein) and circle a couple times then on to the next one this took 15-20 mins at a trot for him to relax and bend around the barrels and rate. Well then moved on to a canter first barrel didn't wanna rate so worked on that for 10 mins getting rate there then moved on had an ok rate on 2nd and an amazing rate at the third. By the end of the lesson I got a great rate at 1 and 3 and an ok at 2 but he was rounding and not dropping his shoulder much better then he had before :]
So proud of my boy and love my trainer she is such a help and it helps that she has known this horse since he was little so she knows what needs to be done to help him out :]
