I brought him in and groomed him and he stood very well in the cross ties. I picked up the dressage whip on the way out to the arena and when I did, he was worried. So I rubbed it all over him and reassured him and after a bit he settled down nicely. We worked in the arena on him going forward and coming over his back and he did very well.
Then we went out on a walk hack down the road. I was asking him to keep his neck down and encouraging him to stretch over his topline. He was nervous at first, but with reassurance he improved dramatically. He could do well with a lot of hacking out. He’s a sensitive guy and really wants to please. Loves me some Tag.
