Booted up Louie and turned him out, grabbed Henry and we jogged back to the barn- working on our in hand work? Haha!
Groomed and tacked up while talk to my trainer, she was on her way out.
Lunged as homeboy had a glimmer in his eye and the rain had stopped. Chases him and made him run to get out his crazy.
Got on and started to walk around the arena and he BLEW UP at the open end... trainer was still there so she talked me threw his antics. He was a nut... running sideways, flying backwards, spinning around... it was awesome, NOT! Temper tantrum/spooooook/seeing things that aren't there at its finest... he's never done this before but thankfully with my trainers guidance I was able to work through it.
I ended up working in that corner a lot making little circles, big circles, roll backs coming at the corner in all different ways.
Lots of cantering in the above and using the whole arena.
My plan went out the window but I feel like we had a good workout :)
Cooled him out, hosed his saddle area, groomed, grained, loved on and took him home.
