Boisterous and a hack

He started out pretty quiet on the lunge line, but he had been dozing in the sun. Once he got his feet moving, he was all about it, putting in some pretty impressive bucks. But he got better and better and after just a few minutes he was very good in all gaits. Under tack he was very good in the arena so we went out for a hack where he was quite good. Sorry I didn’t get actual video of the hot times that were happening in the paddock across the street between two horses in the paddock. Oh. my.

Left leg yield

Went out and rode him in the afternoon.  When I got there, he and his pasture mate were playing a game of tag in the paddock and when they saw me they stopped and trotted over.  Funny guys.  I tacked him up and got on and reviewed all the things we have been doing recently, which went well in all gaits.  Then I went to work on walk leg yield, noting that each time he is asked to yield off the right leg, he balks.  We had a long quiet discussion about that and made some very nice progress.
