Freedom is letting me put on the halter decently. I start to teach him to go right and left when I point and to disengage his hip when I ask for it. He does this all willingly and like he has understood this stuff his entire life. He is also leading very well in this square pen. On to the round pen to lead in a bigger space soon! I am able to run my hand down both front legs but if I ask him to lift it he cow kicks at my head. Jensen says wear a helmet, and I make a note to self that it is ALWAYS possible to get hurt even on horses that are relatively quiet. Freedom is still a wild animal and I am teaching him very hard things. He is progressing very quickly and with good attitude. I rub his face and give him a kiss. He is such a good boy.
