I think he is the bravest of them all. When he sees something scarry, he just frezes for a second then I ask him to walk on and he continues to walk on, as if he never saw it. He still sometimes likes to look at my feet, but he does it, out of insecurity, so I just tell him that he is fine and then it is good. Anyway he is better to train with voice than with Cues. I think he is your best lead horse, but you have work hard till he trusts you. He also just blocks when you come at him with to much pressure. Rodeo, if he understands the job, he just does it without getting distracted.
