ahh the rain is now arrived, winter is deffinatley showing itself
i brought him a doona rug (cotton underneath. stable rug) and put his water proof one over the top
i want to learn to ride bareback as i dont have a saddle as the one i once had was deffinatley a no fitter,
ive been using the round yard, which is new to him
leading is becomming easier, since ive been leading him 10 to 20 mins walk to the round yard, the company horses are free range and are the very very first time he seen them he was okay seeing them to the arena, 2 hrs later went out the gate asoon as that gate open'ed he bolted to them,
all was fine, he was rejected from the herd and got a good bite to his sides, after 2 hrs of work, him sweating, he was still full of energy
after that he has been totally great to lead, he was iffy when walking down in the spot he took off, but didnt take much to get his attention again so that was good.
he has been walking with his shoulder inlined with mine, not to far in front, and not to far behined
when i lead him i halt him, and back him up, to regain focus, and it is proven affective for me and him, he does it straight away! which is great!
