Some oddness with Tangoose
Mr. Tango has been doing pretty well, overall. He's rather quiet in almost all dealings with him, and the only reminder (most of the time) of the fact that he used to be a charger in the canter is that if your half-halt is too weak before bringing him back to the trot he drops into this jaw-rattling speedy trot.
I've been introducing him to the tarp (which he now wears quite... well, happily isn't the word, but he wears it now.)
I've been working on teaching him to stand still for grooming and tacking.
He's doing a ton of shoulders-in, spirals at the trot and canter, lengthening and shortening. He's getting stronger and more obedient pretty much every day.
All these positive things to say - he tried to buck me off on Sunday. There was no rhyme or reason to it.
We're blaming Bert.
