This week we started by revising what we had learnt last week on how to lead a horse using the short lead rope and the long ropes. Thunder knows how to do this already so we practiced again with her, then we had to learn how to teach Willis to do it, because, like us, Willis is still learning how to do this.
First we had to lead Willis to walk around the stable. Then we lead him towards us and got him to stop. Then lead Willis to turn around to face a different direction. This meant that one of us had to take the long rope behind him and pull so he followed the direction of the rope, and the other person had to follow the lead person and keep leading Willis until he reached the place where the the lead person had stopped.
These 2 photos show steps in the sequence and the video shows how we did the complete action.
