Well, we've been getting my 4 1/2 yr. old ready for his first dressage competition. He's a big guy, almost 18 hds., 1800 lbs. and we're trying to teach him to bend on circles and go straight across diagonals, keep a steady pace at the trot, things like that. Very basic and he's coming along. He's very willing and has plenty of go which is great. Next step is canter transitions!! I'm still working on getting my right foot/ankle moving again after a serious crush injury, takes a long time to come back from an injury, huh? Anyways, it's fun to finally begin his serious education!
