Pay attention

The most important thing I feel I can do with my three old colt is to work with him in the round pen, teaching him to pay attention to me while I secure his respect in me. Once we have built up trust, I know he will stop behaving badly. Once I have established his confidence in me, he will stop moving away from me, stop rearing up, stop ignoring my voice commands and stop turning his rump to me. Zum will be less apt to kick at me when he trusts me.
