An excerpt from Round Pen: First Steps

The round pen is not about running your horse into the ground. Use common sense and always err on the side of caution. Never, ever "tag team your horse," allowing another trainer to work the horse while you take a break. If you get a break, the horse gets a break. Period. End of story.

You'll want to offer the horse plenty of breaks, for "airing up," water, and to get out of the sun. True, we'll sometimes motivate the horse to find a specific answer by "getting his feet to move," but our job is to help the horse find the correct answer (and a break) sooner rather than later. The average horse is not going to be particularly keen to burn any more calories than he absolutely has to; we'll use that to our advantage. Those of you with the Duracell Bunny horse (hello, arab owners) will need to continually search for ways to break each concept down into simpler components. You never want to "force the horse" through the work here. What should be in your head throughout the work is that there's no such thing as a wrong answer. There's an answer that you, the human would prefer, and there's another that spells out more work for the horse. Simple example: I want the horse to stand still. He can stand still and relax or he can burn calories. Your horse makes advances in the round pen when, if, and because you get him to move without causing injury or pain.
