Rowdy has had a week of good progress!
We've continued to Round Pen, Desensitize to the Lead Rope & Stick & String, Yield the Hindquarters & Forequarters, Backing, Lunging Stage 1, & Flexing. This week, we added Sending & went through the Leading by the Front Feet & Laying Down process. Rowdy is by far the easiest horse to teach to Lead by the Feet so far. It took him no time to realize how he needed to respond.
Overall, I've noticed that Rowdy has gotten much more confident & sure of what's going on around him.
Today, Rowdy received his first MagnaWave treatment while a client is letting me borrow her machine. He sure enjoyed it!
Next week's update will be posted on Friday.
