Bolting outside the round pen
Ok, first and foremost, Jack IS going to a trainer, just waiting on a spot to open up. I've been working on basic ground manners, giving to pressure, trying to get lounging together, while in the round pen. For the most part, everything IN the pen is going well. The last few weeks, every time we go out of the round pen, he bolts. 75% of the time, he bolts at small birds that are flying around. The rest of the time, I have no clue. He never goes real far, just a sudden jump to the side, sometimes kicks out, goes about 5 feet, then drops his head to graze. I can walk right up to him, grab his lead and everything is fine, until he does it again. After about 30 minutes of this, i'm getting mad, he can tell, he starts getting nervous and I put him up. Any help is welcome!
