Round two cavesson and lunging continued

Okay so I didn't manage to get a video today but after magic responded so well to his cavesson yesterday on decide to take the plunge and give it another go today. I went up to the stables and magic was already in. So I tied him up outside while I got to work on his stable, it wasnt as bad as normal today but it was still pretty trashed. I then got his grooming kit and got to doing a bit of grooming magic was being good and calm. He seemed to have a sensible head on him which is great. 

I then put his cavesson on and over the top put his bridle on him. I don't connect the  lunge line to the bridle as at the moment the idea of the bridle being on is just to get him used to the feel of it. I gave him a quick fuss before asking the lady who owns sonny if it would be okay to lunge magic in the bottom of the school while she rode. I expected magic to be quite excitable when Sonny went in to trot but he really wasnt. We only did walk work at the moment but he maintained a nice stretch and really relaxed in to lunging which I would say is the first time that he has done this. Even when sonny did bits of canter work and trot work magic still kept walking on calmly and quietly. I do wish that I had got a video of it. After this I gave magic some more fuss before quietly and calmly untacking him. He was such a good boy. 

I then popped to we my riding teacher and we have decided that its time to get magic a roller. So I have ordered his roller and that should come one day next week. 

But on that note I'm going to head to bed and to watch TV. 

Until next time
