We had a couple of hiccups with canter leads but that was most likely me, I tend to be a bit weak through my left side and that's the lead we have trouble getting.
He was so fabulous at listening to my forward aids and (BIG BREAKTHROUGH) I didn't feel like he was too forward even once. I have big issues with horses going more forward than I want them thanks to a very nasty fall a few months ago, and I think the key is to set a goal before the ride of a forward and rhythmic trot, with emphasis on FORWARD. I always have better rides when that's my goal.
Got a lesson tomorrow and if today's anything to go by it will be fantastic!
