I almost feel kinda stupid asking another question xD! Anyway.....
Gelding I am training, needs more saddle time to fix saddle problems. But, I wanted to try a little round penning with him to get him to think about things a little more instead of just react and react badly to them.
The thing is. First day he got here I approached him the wrong way. Tried to shut him up in a make shift round pen I made and try to get his feet moving a little. So maybe I could get him calm enough I could get the halter on him. He was doing pretty well, I wasn't making much movement just sending him around quietly, when his brain shut off and with in 5 seconds he busted down the fence and ran up the road. MY FAULT ENTIRELY! Should not have approached him that way at all.
But now, he knows how to lounge on the lead line and listens really well. I'm actually receiving panels this Saturday, 16 foot long and five foot high panels. This pen will be sturdy enough he can not get through. But, on the day we had our accident he took off and we went to go catch him. Anytime we'd even get 15 foot near him he'd act like he'd want to go through the fencing we had him kinda catercorner up against.
I'm not sure exactly what to do. I need to ride him in the round pen because its safer for not only me but him as well. Because he doesn't have much room to take off at a bolt and go running down the road.
