OP, looks good! I too am working on getting my guy to stand still after whoa. Actually stand still period! He's a wiggle worm. :)
Taffy, I like the description of the way you hold the reins. Sounds much easier than what I'm being taught
I would like to hear or see how you are being taught. Are you being taught "one handed"? Your instructor Barb is probably more correct than I am. I have never learned one handed, and am just trying to start learning now. I hear if you start one handed in the beginning it is much easier in the long run.
