We worked on FTR, indirect and direct turns, and stopping off of my seat. He needs more practice on FTR and direct turns. At the end of the session we worked on backing. His backing was so good with the hackamore, but it has not followed over to the snaffle. He was acting introverted so I went slowly and did the nine step backup. I must of did it twenty times before I think he put the motions into thought. He licked and chewed everytime though! I was always sure he was going to do it the next time, but he didn’t. I will work on it today to keep it fresh in his mind. Don’t think I’ll have time to ride Can Do. Stopping needs a little work also!
