Please rain, clouds! We need you!!

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Oh man, Maverick's going to be SO perfect. Like SOOO perfect!!! I LOVE him like crazy and I've only been leasing him for 6 days!

Today's ride on him was good, it was really hot so he was lazy haha What we were working on? At this point I'm not really working on anything specific. I'm now just trying to put lots of miles on him for him to get fit and to get to know him and him to know me.

I'm now trying to get 1) an extended trot out of him. I know he has it, I've felt it but he doesn't think he does apparently.
2) For him to NOT swing his whole body sideways into the rail when I ask for a canter. I ask and his head goes up and to the outside rail, his hip goes in, which I know is good, but it's not going in properly. His body follows his hip so he's completely facing the rail and then gets all stiff and pops into it. He never did this when I rode him before...I'm not sure what his leasee was doing but oh well, he'll get it!

I'm finally getting a good gallop out of him which is GREAT!

Once I get all the basics down with him I'll start him over jumps again. I did a LOT when I rode him before and I did a bunch the first day I leased him but I don't want that as my main focus right now. There's other things I need to get down packed first. Then we can throw jumps in there.

SO excited to work with him more, he's SO amazing for me!!
