Re: RC: training advice (longish)

Great response Renee, this works too! I used to bring my
boy home and tie him for 20 min. Would sometimes pass the
house and go down to the neighbors and practise riding
through their muddy ditch for 20 min. (I really need to
start doing this again though, been getting lazy and been
coming home.)
