So, this is my - I'm a proud mummy thread! I don't usually post there, so enjoy. Since I moved Chinga, I now have a round-yard! Exciting, I know!
Anyway - yesterday, my coach and I put him in there for the first time. Quite the experience that was. He wanted to be the dominant one and didn't understand at the same time. Really, it was a challenge. At first - he was rude. Getting in our space in a threatening way and sometimes even kicking out. Therefore, my coach made him move his feet. He needed to know that we were in charge. Not him.
Ten minutes later: mission achieved. He was licking his lips, dropping his head, watching us. He was happier to work. Still he was messing up sometimes - putting his ears back and trying to take charge. But, overall he did pretty well.
Day 2: I took him back, without my coach. To work him. Before I got on. At first, he was a little bit disrespectful. But no charging, just one silly kick. So, I made him move his feet. Straight away - he dropped his head and started licking his lips. Very pleased. Finished quickly and took him for a nice bareback ride.
He isn't perfect at it!! But so much improvements already - very happy!!
