Tanka in the Wind
I'm pretty proud of the fact that Tanka and I made it out to the round pen, even going down the driveway and back in the wind which was blowing pretty good. We did stops and backs and steps and a few turns and yield hind ends. I decided not to let the wind defeat me and I asked Tanka to step up to the mounting block.
I sat by the round pen with him and read a book for awhile. I wanted him to see that the wind isn't a problem and I wasn't worried. Tanka got some carrots and he decided to snack on the hay that was in there.
We finished up with a walk back to his home pen where I again asked him to pay attention to me by stopping, backing, etc. He looked so content when we got back.
