Still working on conditioning Luka to things on the trail, trotting out on loose rein, one rein stops, etc. Today we decided to swim...he's never done it so...I sure wasn't going to find out on an endurance ride how he felt about it :)
He was awesome even after his first little panic when the ground left out from under him, then he also had a little time getting out the way I DID NOT want him to...got stuck in the mud and was left scrambling up and out...we headed back in so that he'd end on a good note and calm and he did so fairly willingly.
We've also been working on getting used to riders coming up from the rear and passing...we'll have to work on it some more, lol.
I did enjoy long trotting with my friend while her QH cantered to keep up :)
