So, after 2 successful trail rides with no rearing, bucking etc. I decided to try and venture out on our own. Got to the end of the driveway and he did a little hop but continued on. From there it was turn sideways, turn around go backwards. 5 steps forward and 20 steps back. Got to the trail and ended up going backwards down the trail for a while. I figured you want to go backwards? then we will. Got to my planned turn around stop and turned around on MY initiative. Got back to barn and went past the driveway a ways all good. Went back down the driveway got almost to the barn and then he started turning around again wanting to go back out!!! Sheesh make up your mind pony. All in all was successful.

I had a horse that wanted to back when I asked him to go forward. Once we backed for a mile. I think that made him really tired and he finally started going my way. He ended up being a great horse.

Hunter, congrats on the successful ride! I had a QH who liked to become stubborn every so often and wouldnt want go forward either......so backwards we went!! Lol. Those make the funny memories...in fact often when I pass the bridge she often bulked at and had to back over, I think about her....she was a great horse! ��

Anyway, nice technique!! ��

Sorry to see the swollen eye there Nicker. I hope it goes down quickly and gets back to being comfortable.

Figured I would update on Boo's leg wound. I have been using a mixture of oitments for his healing. I sent for some of the PFWonder salve from 6W Ranch on here. I knew it wouldn't last through the entire healing process so I alternated it with Corona and here is the results after a couple of weeks.
