He was being a touch lazy, but still showing off his nice trot. :D Now I just need to get the clicker out and teach him to put his head down again. The last three pictures show him getting ready to buck. He decided not to buck at the last second and just took off cantering, so I don't have any fun bucking pictures. Like I said, he's lazy hehe. I only trotted him in the round pen for less than two minutes. Then I let him have a bite of hay (which is being stored in the round pen temporarily) as a reward for his good behavior.
I love how the picture above turned out because he was chewing which caused the hay to move and blur. So cool!
Then we went for our walk. We've been walking between 1 to 1.5 miles several times a week. I think next week I'm going to start the Couch to 5k with him. I'm having trouble deciding how I want to do it though... should I run with him (with him trotting) out on the asphalt roads so we both get in shape or should I longe him on dirt? Any thoughts?
He loves our walks. :D I had to remind him today that he can't balk when headed home because he wants to stare at the neighbor horses lol. Am I the only person who has a horse who is all eager to go on the way out, but turns into a slug headed home? Growing up my horses were always in a hurry to get home. I guess Chrome just enjoys going new places and exploring. :) I can't complain about that! I love it!
