Today was a good day for my boy too; I took him out groomed him, then took him for a walk so he could graze behind the farm, and decided to hop on, and let him keep grazing. After a good while I asked him to lift his head and start moving foward, and he did so willingly and calmly. Danni walked the entire way up the front of the property and down the lane with head down in a relaxed manner, and didn't once try to rush back to the pasture. I was sooooooo proud of him, because this is something we have worked on since I've gotten him; I'm hoping we get more and more of the 'relaxed calm' rides from here on out!
