    Loosie,
    That does seem logical
    The one thing though that I think it's stubbornness is that he did it fine for maybe the first 5 minutes, then he stopped (he wanted to go into the barn), so I kept working him until he got it right and then he did it.

    Also another reason why I think it was just stubbornness was that his "girlfriend" Hannah was in the barn.

    But I will work with him outside of the roundpen...I used the roundpen myself because I do the groundwork in there. I'm trying to teach him to ground tie...and I want it to be in an enclosed arena before I try it in a larger one and then outside
    I'll work on the arena today and then a short period just on the drive-way.
    To see if it was maybe just that he didn't know he was supposed to do it then

    Well we worked on neckreining some more...this time in the arena and in a pasture AND on the drive-way. He did fine...I think maybe it was an off day or something.

    We even did it for trotting too!!
    He's got it down pat for walking, and has the idea for trotting (though he doesn't respond all the time) and haven't worked on cantering yet with it.
    So he was really good today and I'm happy with how quick he's learning

    And, palogal...I thought I responded but didn't
    I wasn't trying to start an arguement...just wanted to let you know that it does work

    Hey there. Agree, Parelliism is not worth arguing about.

    Stubbornness.
    What I'd do is get him working where you want to work him no matter how tired he is when you finally get him to where you want to work him make him do exactly what you planned to do and then eventually he'll learn if he doesn't want to be double-tired then he'll work easily where you want him to...

    Well I've been trying to split up the times...so I'd do 30 minutes in the arena and 30 minutes in a pasture and 30 minutes on the driveway...I don't want to overtire him because it's been severely hot when I go up to ride and I don't even ride that long. I'd say an hour max and he's really sweaty.

    I think it was just an off day because he is doing fine now...either that or he learned he can't get away with it. And Hannah was in the stables when I tried it again and he still listened. I actually got him infront of hte barn and then was able to turn him away!
