Took the baby (Oscar?) into the arena where 2 of the boys were getting their horses ready to ride. He ties but does not stand still. Apparently China is where he really wants to be- according to the hole he dug. When he gets really frustrated he kicks out behind. I think he saw the other horses get bareback pads put on and thought everyone was getting ready for a race.
After the 2 boys got on and were practicing walking and keeping their horses right next to the rail, I untied him and walked him around. Perfect gentleman. When I stopped he would walk in circles around me. Not panicky circles, just wandering circles. I just let him. He's figuring it all out. From the ground we practiced walking, trotting (needs work), stopping, and turning. Afterwards I tied him back up and he stood quite nicely. Picked up all 4 feet. (Phew- that's not something I wanted to have to work on).
