Well I have to say I was pretty nervous I haven't worked with my horse Scout in a month or so and decided to start back up with a join-up and what was funny is the only thing that didn't go perfectly was the "Go Away A Lot" part haha, when I snapped my eyes on to his eyes he just kind of moseyed on leisurely haha until I threw the line behind him then he got going haha. He loped the round pin right (5) then left (5), I had my hand up and open throwing the line every once in awhile to keep pace and changed back to original direction all I did was slow my pace a lil and closed my hand and he immediately changed to a slow trot and smaller circle ear locked on me and licking and chewing, then as soon as I dropped my hand down to my midsection he dropped his head twice and then stopped and turned towards me almost right at 12 o'clock so I turned and he came right up to me it was almost so perfect I felt like I had done it with him a thousand times. Thank you Monty because I have to say I felt the connection and it was so strong it even made me tear up a lil. The follow up was really great to he even followed me in some pretty small circles and I loved turning and giving him a good rub and how calm he was. It was different for us (Scout and I) because I do believe before I got him he was handled roughly so working with him was a challenge because he would get all excitable and think I was getting after him when I was just standing there sometimes and it took awhile to get him to trust I wasn't getting after him and then when I went a month without seeing him he seemed to lose a little of that trust and the join up seemed to bring it straight back! So THANK YOU THANK YOU MONTY I only wish I would found your online university sooner because I truly believe I would've been a lot further with Scout than I am now but now I can be confident that our relationship is going to sky rocket from here!!
