With my 1st horse I am working on cantering poles and jumping (and not avoiding). At first he didn't think he could canter a series of poles (only 1 by itself) and he wouldn't even try it, but now he can get over four in a row before he gives up and either trips or starts trotting. I'm very proud. :) And he just started jumping and we are working on not avoiding it...not fun!! Oh, and we are working on getting the right lead on the right canter. For some reason he isn't wanting to take the correct lead, but I wasn't totally aware of it until today (been busy working on other things) so it should improve now that it is more on my mind.
On my green pony we are working on cantering (getting the canter). His trot is pretty solid as is the canter on the lunge line but under saddle he doesn't want to canter, so we'll be working more on the voice command to go with it. He has been under saddle for about a month and a half so he is doing sooooo well. Only had one incident so far, and it was very very mild. He is one sweet man.
