The last two lunging sessions have made me very happy. Snickers continues to have smoother downward transitions in all gaits, not perfect, but so much better than before.
At the canter she now holds it and rarely gets her legs tangled up, bunny hops or turn her butt towards the inside of the circle shaping her body like a coma. When she is at the trot and I ask for the canter, she does sometimes look right at me first and pin her outer ear while having her inner ear on me. Wasn't sure if that meant she was uncomfortable or just arguing. Cantering to the left before was nearly impossible. She does well now, but does sometimes lead with her rt hind and has to switch legs when she finally seems to realize how odd it is to lead with the outside hind leg.
So overall, I am happy. Let me know if any of the above notes mean anything in particular. Can't wait to show the next video soon!
