I ended up taking a quick trip up to Rapid City with a student to watch the cowhorse & ranch classes during the Black Hills Stock Show Horse Show on Monday & Tuesday, but we've sure enjoyed the weather during the second half of the week & are looking forward to the 50° weather that's forecasted for next week!
This week, we spent our time reviewing our groundwork after nearly two weeks off. Overall, he did well. He had a few little "feeling fresh" moments, but that's too be expected. Today, he got a trim & got to stand tied at the trailer with the lone client mare that I have in this season. A little look of interest, but otherwise, not a peep. He actually turned away from her & was content to ignore her. She was more interested in him than he was in her.
Next week, we'll be back in the saddle, working on Flexing, Yielding the Hindquarters. One Rein Stops, Cruising (if ground conditions allow), & likely some steering around the place.
