Has anyone turned their horse out in a round pen, or an arena with a lead rope attached? Someone told me to do this with Rodeo today just so he could learn where his lead rope, and feet were. And to prevent him from stepping on it, or overreacting when he did step on it.
I think I've seen a natural horsemen do this on RFD-TV before, but don't quote me on that.
Personally, I have mixed feelings on it. Let me know what you think, or your experiences with this.
