Day 23- Lucero was actually a little sore today! First time during this intensive training, but he gave 110% yesterday so I’m not too surprised. He gave a decent buck during our first walk to trot transition. He didn’t want to trot, and when I insisted is when he bucked. I spun him around and then had him walk long and low for awhile until he utterly relaxed. No more bucks the rest of the ride. Kept things short and never picked him up. I wanted it to be a completely relaxing and stretchy day got him. Ended with a line of trot poles, will try to be using these daily through the end of the training.
