Tucson after a long day.
Had a pretty good day with Tucson on the trail yesterday. He continues to make good progress. He was a little shaky when we left the barn. As you go down the drive way there are several things, all of which he has seen before, but he was a little nervous and acted like he did not want to go out the gate. I quickly put him in a couple little circles and he settled right down. We went thru the gate without issue and down the road.
We did a little round pen work yesterday before the ride just to see if he remembered how he was suppose to act and if he would catch me. I had to spend a little time with him, reminding of what to do, but he got it. It only took about 10 minutes or so. That’s good.
Tucson is moving forward with very little cue from me anymore. That was an issue his owner had with him when he first got here. So, that’s good. He is getting better about standing to be saddled and unsaddled. He is getting better about standing still to be mounted and dismounted. He is taking the bit with a little less resistance each time and is learning to lower his head to have the bridle removed.
All in all he is doing well. Will do more of the same today.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
