I don't personally allow Duffy to roll in my sight, after working, I'll let her loose in the roundpen and walk away, ten minutes later she's ready to come in. BUT, if you can teach the difference between work/ at attention that is fine.. but looking at that video, the girl clearly has no idea whether or not she's letting the horse mess around, or snaking a leadrope at its head...?JMO
