Gotta get better at this!

Petey has been coming along wonderfully. Nailing his leads, working on slowing his jog, and soon the lope. He's still responding a bit better to neck reining then direct reining, but I'm ok with that now. Also getting good at pivots, which is partially due to his getting better at showmanship!

Chubbs is doing better in rowel spurs then ball I found. The rowel really make him respond and lift, where the ball he doesn't care if you keep it on him all the time. Still trying to find the right shanked snaffle to try him in, hopefully that will help with the "lag" in neck reining we've been having.

Next show will be Chubbs going again on September 12th!
