With Rodney’s new attitude [Update] we have restarted our groundwork exercises. The most recent addition is to have him move sideways along a pole on the ground. If memory serves, western trail classes have horses sidestep around a square of poles. We are starting easy with a pole, or a times, the tip of a pole.
Oddly, he works better when I steer by nose rather than by halter.
Anyone done this on the ground, mounted, or in a show? Tips?
