It's so awesome to hear about how well you are doing those are great pictures! Congratulations, I hope he continues to improve!
My guys going through training for it, and part of the training is that before my lesson my trainer gets on him, rides him through those areas, then trades places with me and tells me what she did to make him behave in those spots and stay relaxed. Very helpful.
Yesterday was my fiirst time taking a lesson down their with her during his new training regime, and she asked me what his major issues were down their, and of course I said the far end of the dressage ring, she made me stay in a circle up their the whole time! It was great for both me and my horse.
