Three, four and five

I am pretty brilliant, you know…

Same exercise today as yesterday.  After a warm up and a few minor bobbles, he did three times around the circle on the right lead, jumping the 8″ jump.  I gave him a break and walked him around the arena and told him how brilliant he is.  Then I put him back to the exercise and asked him for four right lead circles and jumps and he obliged.  Another walk break and ego puffery, and we went back to the exercise.  I asked for five and he did it brilliantly.  Pat and done for the day.  We get in the tack tomorrow.
