I am STILL working on stopping my mare from leaving every time a kangaroo appears next door. She is TERRIFIED of them. She is getting better though. Now she mostly just gets tense for 1/4 of a circle rather than trying to leave at pace. When she's settled we are working on turn about the haunches, shoulder-in to renvers, travers and counter canter.
I'm not doing much with the Friesian apart from getting weight off of him. He's a little weak in his stifles, and it really shows up when he gets too fat. And he's too fat. So lots of walking and pole work to help strengthen his stifles.
