Aw! Thats a cute idea!
Yeah I really love how he is having so much fun... he wants to ride more! The last few times I've just let him ride and do whatever in the arena as long as he did the one thing I said (last time it was turning, then putting his hand back where it was..). I had him back her and stop her a few times but he definitely likes steering ;)
I tried to do some smaller circles/bending but he's scared he'll fall off around turns :p I'll just keep it slow with him! And I'll be working on teaching him how the horse thinks and why it does what it does.
