This week, we continued to build upon Roach's first rides around his pen. He had a great response to having me aboard while moving his feet. He has even had some fantastic releases with some big yawns, which is exactly the relaxed response that I want to see from him. Those made great times to dismount & end on those great notes. He's had no problem with me sliding off to dismount.
He's been doing well with this process & is much more at ease with everything that we're doing.
I also caught on video how well he'll pull up next to the fence without the halter while letting me climb aboard.
Next week's update will be posted on Friday.
