I feel so happy, I mean it's probably not anything but it just made me day :)
Did groundwork with Buzz today, was in the arena to start of with but decieded to go to the top paddock and work there.
I had tied Buzz's leadrope around his neck and he was following me, well for the most of it lol had to grab him a few times in the first 10mins but after that he was completely in tuned with me.
I was turning sharp circles following his head around, then decieded to do it the other way so he would follow me in tight circles with his head, he did it
Started running and he followed in a trot, started sprinting and he cantered
that's what really did it for me, cos after he still stopped and listened.
Put him over a few jumps and he was great, I would run next to him and send him over stop a little after the jump and he would turn around and stop with me.
This was all away from his paddock pal who was neighing her head off, I just feel so good because I feel like I am finaly developing a good bond with Buzz
