January 27, 2022 – EMM Day 10 (Video): I included the full clip of his first time on the bridge in this video because I wanted you all to see how cute he is when he’s got his thinking cap on. He REALLY wants to stay with me and wants to get pettings so when I walked over the bridge this created a small problem for him as he didn’t know how to walk over it yet. I kept moving around trying to get him to follow me and he figured it out in about 2 minutes. I would not have let his confusion go on for very long, at the tiniest signal he was getting frustrated I would have put his halter on and helped him through it a little more hands-on. But he didn’t get frustrated at all, he just kept trying to figure it out until he succeeded and got the pettings he loves so much.
EMM Day 10 (Pictures): The first ten days of training are a wrap! We celebrated by introducing the ramp and the saddle blanket He has come so far in only ten days and I can’t wait to see how much we accomplish in the next ten!
