    Well since, I just talk to myself on this site, I mosewell stick to journal,

    I've been working on leading miover, I lead him to the arena which is a 10 to 20 minute walk, and walk him go past and not a single reaction:)

    I need to just focus on where I want to go, and not focus on miover as we walk

    The last lesson was focused on his new behaviour...backing up while mounting, which id assume was that saddle, which I NO longer have, didnt fit either of us

    Snapshot 1 (6-18-2013 6-11 PM).jpg

    And ^^^ this was a lesson learned from ill fitting saddle for both of us,

    I couldnt get my feet in stirips, and the saddle was pushing me forward in the the knee humps, was very uncomfortable, and I felt very vulnerable

    So that saddle is back in the store where I got it, and sellling it on commission for $200, which gives me 170, since they get 15%

    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 don't have a saddle as the one I once had was deffinatley a no fitter,
    I've been using the round yard, which is new to him

    Leading is becomming easier, since I've 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!

    He went from this

    To this...todays pic

    He is now on omeprazole (ulcer treatment)

    Has been for about 2 weeks

    He is back in work after having 6 months off due to back problems

    And then disided to act like a idiot in paddock and popped his hips out

    I was surprised how well behaved he was after having 6 months possably more with no work at all..he came back a better horse.

    Took him out on his first outting along the highway..typically a truck was the first vechile we seen miover spawked but held it together
