Lunging my two boys

I had a go at free lunging (that is what it's called?) my two boys in a hopefully temprary roundish pen hehe. Neither of them jump I have actually never seen sam jump anything. They both kept trying to get out by finding holes in the barrels but the were unsuccessful. In almost all the pictures Apache was about to buck. In the one cantering picture Apache looks like he is really stretching out and going but he was barely keeping a lope lol before bucking.

Then Sammy was being a show off prancing around with his head in the air. For the first few minutes he kept trying to get out at two spots if I didn't really push him to keep going. At one stage I thought he was going to attempt to jump it but he stopped and tried climbing over it but got stuck. I had to go save him because he got confused and started to look worried because he couldn't work out how to get out, it was kind of funny to watch. I just noticed too after looking at the pictures that his neck looks awful, just when I thought it was starting to look a bit better.

I had fun though.

Haha I don't think they realize they could jump it. Even I could, they nearly looked like they were going to a couple of times but no they didn't.
