If I hang out with him, the turnout time is even more fun. Speedy is pretty vain and enjoys showing off. If he thinks I am not watching closely enough, he blows hard to get my attention, tosses his mane and then gallops straight at me, rearing or turning quickly to launch a kick my way. He is ultra careful and never gets close to me - he just enjoys having me play the game with him.
After I pulled Speedy's saddle, I started dragging the poles out one by one. The first short side is easy, but once I get to the long side, it's a lot more tedious as I have to pick up each pole and carry it 20-meters to the fence line and then walk back 20-meters to the next pole. Dressage suicides, people.
Of course, when he was done playing, he jogged up to me with his tail waving, and asked if I had had as much fun as he did. He's such a character!
