Tonight I just wanted to focus on asking him to canter away. It is way to early to canter in but cantering away is important in letting him know that forward is the answer. It’s neat to see the difference from day 1 of learning to jump to the 2nd day. He was quite good. I really don’t worry about leads at this point. I just want him to canter away. This horse is very naturally balanced so it will all come together.
I rode Love as well but truthfully it just wasn’t our best ride. I want to try my other saddle on him tomorrow because I think the narrow is now too narrow and might have been pinching him. I didn’t jump him because he seemed pissy and that is not normal for him.
I love his canter!
The trot is coming. Right now he feels like he puts his head on the ground when on the buckle but leans when I pick up the reins. I need to sort that out.
I think that Love is growing right now as well. He has filled out so much.
