This week, Cactus & I have done A LOT of One Rein Stops, a bit of Lateral Bending, Vertical Flexion, & Moving the Shoulder. A lot of his tenseness on the ground turns into a busy mouth & busy feet under saddle. Once he's outside, that likely turns into more reactivity. It's just something we will continue working on, especially if it's not something he's been exposed to before.
With the chance of storms that we had (& the chance of more mud), I opted to wait to give baths until next week.
Next week, we'll be spending a fair bit of time on One Rein Stops, Lateral Bending, Vertical Flexion, & Moving the Shoulder until he's confident with those exercises.
Next week's update will be posted on Friday night.
