Click on the photo above to watch TJ in the round pen beginning to respond to verbal cues.
This is his 4th short round pen session. I am very pleased that I waited until now to introduce the round pen. He is learning the cues quickly, remaining very attentive and staying relatively calm, which, in my opinion, is the only place in training for the round pen.
I hope to have the heart rate monitor on TJ within the next few days and that should yield some interesting data (from a very interesting horse!).
