Running with Gemini
Had a great run with Gemini again today. He was a perfect horse, careful not to brace against the lead rope while he eats grass (he's figured out how to do that and stay up with me, kinda cool). We walked/ran and at one point came across other horses that caused him to get his adrenalin going. We are practicing sideways a bunch and he's doing pretty good - his butt lags some still, but hes getting straighter. We've got nice circles and transitions on the circle are pretty nice. His change of direction is nice, too! He learns fast and he is so willing. I can reward him with grass munching and he's easy to please.
