Echo's Training

This is Echo's 3rd session with Sarah, the trainer.  He is getting a general tune-up and a lot of work in specific areas.  
About 3 years ago, Echo hurt himself going over a cavelleti.  (That white thing with the X'es at either end.)  He got his feet tangled up and scuffed 3 out of 4 of his legs!  So ever since then he has been frightened to go over any ground pole.  It turned into a phobia!!
So this is big progress in just about 2-3 hours of training time.
(This full video is almost 10 min. long.)

This takes a lot of patience and a lot of understanding as to how a horse thinks.

Thanks for watching.
