As you know I have been working with my horse on lounging. We have been working on Walk`Ho Trot ho for a while now.
Before today I would get maybe one or two good "ho's" where Tiny would stay out on the circle. The rest of them I would have to ask a bucnh or we would spiral inward!
Today was so awesome. Every time I asked for him to Ho, he did so and I only asked 2 times and for every single one of them he stayed on the circle!
He was sooo good and I am very proud of him. He even had a day in between us lounging, because Wed. Is my long day at college.
He is also making improvments in the way he carries himself with the side reins.
This is good news because I swear I was ready to have the trainer work with him for a few weeks.
Even if I go to work with him tomorrow and he does not do it right I still will have confidense he is finally coming around.
Soon I will plan on riding him. I just cannot wait. It has been hard to not just jump up there and go!
Thanks everyone for all the advice and support!
