Woohoo! I was determined to at least try it with Eddie again. We've tried before and it went terribly, so hopefully this try would work. And it did!!! He gives me about 2 seconds as my window of opportunity and each time I missed it because I couldn't get my leg over fast enough. But I got it to where he lifts his head now instead of putting it down farther. lol! So he did SUPER! I just have to work on getting my leg up and over his back. YAY! So I got on (from the log) and rode for a little bit and played with some point to point. Then I got off and we played circling game, sending him over things while I am FAR away and rollbacks. It was a lot of fun!! Oh yeah, Diesel had gotten out before hand, read his blog: http://trustinmenaturally.blogspot.com/ It's so funny!!!
Then we played with the trailer and he did awesome!!!! He put his front 2 feet in and was looking around calmly. I had opened the window, so he was like, "Oh! A window! Can I look out of it?" But I didn't let him go all the way in because I want it imprinted on his brain that we back out of a trailer. No turning around like in his stall. So we're going to work with that and it's getting better every day!!!
