Great training session yesterday!

I just started my boy back in training a week ago. Hope to have him ready for the saddle in the next month or so.
He was a bit of a butthead all last week, so we had a 'come to jesus meeting' as I like to call it on Saturday. After quite a few freakouts and rears, he finally learned who was boss and submitted. His main problem is backing, which started the blowup. After our little 'talk' he settled down and was a perfect gentleman.
I figured it would take a few more lessons for him to really get the hint, but I have one smart boy, and when I took him out yesterday, he was a complete angel (backing with no pressure- just body language, pressure yeilding with the slightest touch, ground tieing perfectly, and breezed through the desensitization for the whip with no issues (he used to be terrified of it)). Needless to say, I am very proud of my boy. I think he just needed to know who was the leader. Once he realized his place in the 'herd', he was fantastic!
He still has a little work left in the round pen (turning in, slowing his trot, and learning how to hold a canter), but he's come a long way in just a week.
Just wanted to share how my boys doing because I'm very impressed with him!
