M. came and I invited her to bring up her horse so that we could ride together. We set up some trot poles together and took turns using them. I want Kai to be in shape for the Fawn Anderson clinic in the end of June so I made a point of trotting Kai a little more than I usually would. I began to wrap up our ride and trotted less and walked more. I got a 22' line and tied it through a cone so that Kai and I could practice dragging it. Poor Kai was very confused about why the cone suddenly started following us. He turned to face it and snorted. He soon calmed down so I dropped the rope and walked him around some more. I let him roll before putting him away.
