Sunday Rex came over and we proceeded as planned. I got on Rosso and the minute he began threatening to buck or bolt, off I'd get and round and round he'd go on the lunge line. Not nicely either - in a mad scrambling gallop while I chased him and no relenting until he was begging to stop.
The second time I got up on him, he immediately began his crap and on the way off, he bolted, I landed on my ankle - OW - but we had him go, go, go until he was begging to stop. He submitted on the third time.
Better than last Sunday when it took 5 times before he stopped with all his bullshit. Progress!
Last night I trailered him up to Rex's barn, lunged him and got on. He was nice so I was nice.
We walked, halted and I stepped down. I got back on. We walked and walked, halted and I stepped down. I got back on and we walked. We halted and we walked, halted and walked. Stood calmly in the middle of the arena on a loose rein and he was done.
He'll learn or his next owner will be Purina brand dog food corporation.
