Moving Both Ends of a Colt

Last month, I showed you how to mount your colt for the first time and then flex his neck (find it here). In this lesson, you’ll learn how to move both his front and hind ends. A helper on the ground, wielding a stick with plastic bags attached, will encourage the colt to move his hind end and then follow through with his front end. As your colt circles this way around the round pen, he’ll be learning to follow his nose and move his feet with you aboard.
