This week, we've continued with a couple of rides in the round pen, which have gone relatively well. The arena didn't quite dry up enough to get into it this week & Roach didn't feel quite ready to go straight out into the pasture.
He has still been pretty sensitive about the saddle being cinched up the first time, ideally, with more riding, that will become a non-issue.
Next week, the arena should be ridable & we'll move into working on One Rein Stops, & Cruising at all gaits.
Yesterday, Roach also got to move into another pen with Cactus, the mustang. Another gelding will also be joining them on Sunday.
Next week's update will be posted on Friday.
