^^ great advice. Something that has helped me with my schoolmaster who is completely dead to the leg is to have a few periodic "tune ups" with an experienced rider. She uses spurs on him (she knows how, I don't recommend using them if you aren't experienced) to wake him up just a bit, in fact now all she has to do is have them on, not even use them. Slowly but surely he is becoming much more responsive to the leg. OUr first ride after my trainer has been on him is always amazing. And always remember to REWARD when he does the right thing, it makes a world of difference to them. Best of luck, you'll get there. And you're right, dance is amazing for the legs!
