He's just so much fun to ride! Last night, I'm afraid I rode him a bit harder than I normally would have because he was doing so well. It wasn't until a walk break that I noticed the steam rolling off of him. Sorry buddy! He's just so game to do everything. Today we worked on keeping his shoulder up through the corners in the canter and working with the free walk and stretchy trot. By the end he was doing so much better and he pulled off a beautiful 20m canter circle and a fantastic stretchy trot.
Here's our list of things to work on:
- Cantering - picking up the correct lead automatically, not dropping his shoulder through the corners, work on adjustability and roundness
- Shoulder-in and haunches-in
- Teach him to self load in the trailer
- Continue to work on desensitization
- Start over ground poles and small cavalettis
- Go to a show
- Take him to different arenas to ride, go play on the big indoor trail course, etc.
- Lesson with TS maybe?
