Lunge Lessons

Our oldest son, The Historian, has mentioned that he would like to learn some team roping and perhaps compete in  a rodeo someday.  So his dad has been working with Stanley, our currently unrideable quarter-horse gelding, to make him into a steady steed for such events.  We’ve had Stan for a year and a half now… guess it’s finally time to show him who’s boss.  It’s called obedience 101… tell him to lunge in one direction, stop, and then change directions until he does it without blinking an eye.  

I wandered down to the barn this morning to catch the action.
