I would have been perfectly happy to just toodle around the yard for 20 minutes. However, the mosquitos are so bad in the evening that doing anything outside meant I would be full of itchy bumps for the next week. So we had to head into the indoor arena.
I got on Cisco and walked around on a loose rein. I was pretty sure that was going to be it for the night.
Then I thought I'd at least try a trot. But on a loose rein. I didn't want to actually work.
This was still a good lesson for Cisco. He had to be responsible for maintaining a regular pace, and if he got a bit quick he was expected to slow down from my body aids. He was responsible for maintaining the track I put him on, and going deep into corners with minimal input from me.
