Yeah, we're getting there. He has improved dramatically, and when I took him out yesterday on his own, even though he was naughty and he bolted a couple of times, he didn't nap at all. Which is a total first. It's been a very long battle, but he's deifntly getting there. (:
Another nasty nap, was in the days where he would plant and not move or respond to any cue, no matter how strong. And so I tried the "wait it out" method where you sit and wait for the horse to get bored and go forward.
I sat on my pony for over an hour. And he only moved forward when my friend lead her horse past. As soon as the horse was gone, he planted again. Those were not fun times.
