Rusty will walk well but with a small limp right now. When it is time to work I lunge him and he trots for a while. 5 minutes? Seems like he is sore but once he gets into the rhythm of the trot it is enjoyable for him. He does not want to lead with the sore leg so he would rather not go that way around. I have to ask him to trot at this point. Cantering happens when something going on around us disturbs him and he does it as well as he ever did. I do not ask for a canter, I want him to stay calm and get well. He's a "get up and go" kind of horse.
