Thats true i often have taken my young horses to playdays, horse shows or rodeos it gives them a new experience and they get used to the craziness of lots of horses trucks and people.

Mne is just how I have been taught; and as for the leaving them in the pasture, that did not sound right. The rest of my post talks about the rest of what I do. I honestly do not believe sliding on and off the other side once will cause any problems. I only way 97 pounds. I wouldn't slap a 300lb full grown man on them. I'm lightweight and don't even get my feet in the stirrups.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Well I still think it's dangerous so be careful. You have plenty of time to do that when they are two.
