| || | Rode Chief In A Halter For The First Time
So this probably isn't a big deal to you guys, but I rode Chief in a halter for the first time today and he did really well. Now, Chief will be five in February. N He is a very good boy for a four year old. He does not get ridden much at all, I'll admit that. He gets ridden maybe every two weeks. I attached my reins to the halter today and rode in that and he listened very welll, possibly even more so than in a bridle. When I ride him, he always does great at first, then he gets stubborn. I don't usually ride him long enough to get out of that stubborness. But, today instead of getting off, I decided to be persistent with him and didn't get off until he started listening again. So that was pretty exciting for me to know that he can be ridden out of the stubborn mode and that I actually did that.
