Salem will be 3 next month and right now our big focus is bending, aquireing balance and softening to the bit. Now, when we were working on ground training before the under saddle stuff,we spent a POO-TON of time on the lunge line and therefore Salem is well trained to verbal cues. He moves off,transitions and halts by verbal cues. But I was thinking maybe I need to start making him focus on my hands and legs more,taking the verbal cues out of the equation for now? Thoughts on this?
