Well before the trail ride (you can read all about the trail ride in the Trail Riding section) I rode him in the arena for a while. I went bareback with no halter...just a rope around his neck. He listened perfectly!!!! He even turned on the haunches when I asked without me using the carrot stick to guide him!!! I'm sooo proud of him!
He turned when I asked, and stopped when I asked. We are still working on quickly really fast, but it will come!!!
Sorry had to share such a good day with everyone
