His head finally outgrew his old sparkle halter! Can finally use the neon pink one, that matches my others, on him.
Worked with him a little to see where we were and he remembers everything and even did better than before. Smart ponies that mull over things are the best.
Just two times trying out everything, leading w/turns, backing, moving shoulder then hip over. After that, same thing on lunge, walk with stop in each direction twice, then moving onto trotting.
His turns, after stopping at the walk, were good, but cue the confusion after trotting, lol. He wanted to stop or go after his friends during lunging, so I had him continue around again until he stopped that silliness, 1-2 extra laps. His stops are great though.
During lunging, when we wind up off to the side, I walk where I need to go at his flank, kinda like a middle ground to ground driving I guess, lol. He knows how to do that, easy peasy. I won't add actual ground driving until he stops trying to follow his buddies away.
Okay, pics won't post right. =/
