I brought him in and took his blanket off and let him blow off some steam in the indoor. And steam he did. Lots of bucking and carrying on. My horses at home are doing this too, so I’m not too worried. The footing outside is so nasty that they don’t want to move, let alone run about enough to burn off some energy. Once they get in the indoor on good footing, they let loose!
Then I caught him easily and brought him in for grooming and tacking, which went fine. Lunging was actually fairly good today. We had a few moments of inversion or quickness, but much improved in general, I would say.
