Romeo Training 09/05/08 Ride 2

Les and Romeo reviewed the reining. A spur poke or two, and the little man remembered his job - turn with the rein, before the spur connects.

Then they went for a lope across a cotton field that had finished for the year. Romeo took off, at a gallop, alternating between the gallop & his "buggy trot". Les kept him going until Romeo decided a lope was easier than a gallop, and settled in for a bit of loping. They romped one direction, and made a circle back on home. Les alternated spurts of trot & lope, along with figure eights and circles at the trot to reinforce the neck rein.

Total work, about an hour.
