this horse gets upset if you even look at him, much less approach him with halter and lead, so our 1st attempt was with minimal eye contact, carrying, but not throwing the line. i sent him away by raising an open hand, when i checked to see if his eyes were on, believe me, i would be dead if looks could kill! did 5 laps right, change of direction at 12 o'clock, 5 laps left, change of direction, then got ears and smaller circle. i closed my hand and lowered it, he lowered his head, but when i looked at him he went zoom, zoom, zoom. i had to completely go passive, NO EYE CONTACT, and even then his feet would not stop moving! so i let him circle me and we made a mutual join-up at 6 o'clock near the gate. then i got the lick and chew:) i faced him and rubbed him between the eyes and told him he was a good boy. he only gave me a couple steps of follow-up, but that's ok!! we'll do better next time!
