Next stop, on the other side of Woodgreen, was to see Tamsyn's new horse, 4 year old Arabian stallion, Arash. He is a glorious young horse with just a few little quirks to work with. He's not so keen on being caught and would rather point his bottom at you while putting his head over the (squashed by another horse) gate. We worked with inviting body language, shoulders down, head collar in outside hand, and turning away to acknowledge his first offer to be caught, and it all worked beautifully for both of us.
We did a little work on leading...but it was tempting to walk him all the way out of the gate and up the road to my house!
...and finished with some work on ear shyness which is making it awkward to put his headcollar, fly mask or bridle on.
