We had another good ride tonight. I took Tonka out to the round pen and we practiced side-passing and giving to the bit.
As a side note - he LOVED my sister's sweet iron bit yesterday. Wouldn't let go of it. So if you have a sweet iron snaffle you'd like to sell, let me know! I may just go to a tack store and get one though. I don't think they cost all that much.
We opened and closed a gate, but it took a while. Then we backed a figure 8 around 2 barrels. He did SO incredibly well at that. We took our time, and he listened to every cue, and stopped his movement when I stopped asking. What a good boy! Then we were done for the night.
