Traveler standing square - I have played with the idea of showing him in a halter class for fun - so he knew what to do to get a treat.
The Gate Challenge - opening
Ridin'on Thru -
Shutting it back up -
Self-Loading - Poor Traveler didn't have any idea what I wanted him to do at first. We have such a routine down for everything that this threw him off for a minute.
(Ground) - Pivot on the hindquarters without touching them. We do this activity on the ground to help Traveler start thinking about working and to yield to me. He doesn't really like to do this at all - he wants to push out ahead of me and not stay behind my lead hand and pivot on his hind end. It's hard work!
That's it! Our work here is done. (At least for the night - it's 11:30pm, my time, and I am signing off on our May Challenge.)
