The wind gave us a break today and remained at a tolerable breeze so I was able to ride Marley again. I started in the round pen as there was a lot of traffic in the large arena. Marley was great and picked up right where he left off. I worked with his feet a little bit and his bow behavior before I moved on to riding him.
After a wonderful, positive ride, I got off and we worked a little more on the ground. We spent the whole afternoon with him, enjoyed the sun, and got some good play time in. At the end of the day we decided to start working with Marley accepting someone else coming in and haltering him, so who better than someone who has never haltered a horse?? (hahaha). Actually, it was great. I showed Mike a few times how he would approach Marley, put the halter on, etc., and we ran through it a few times. I think they were both a little nervous at first, but the session was great for Marley and Mike, and Mike even walked Marley all the way back to his stall!
