I had Philip in the backpack today, so I decided not to do the cross-country walk. We worked in the arena instead. I saddled Cali and put her through her paces. She did well most of the time, but every once in a while she'd try to break-away or change gaits. After a quick correction from me, she'd move on again. After about 25 minutes, I took her lead rope off and just let her run. I'm sure she needed to let off some excess energy. After watching this, I see she just wants to go finish her breakfast. She's looking for the way through the gate or through the barn.
