Be sure to give him days off or easy days so he doesn't turn into a sour horse! (Did that to Sky cause all I could think about was riding him and working on his canter.. bad move lol!)

Yeah, I usually ride every other day or so. Won't get to ride till Thursday though (baw) so he'll get a nice two day break.

OP a good exercise is one you're kind of already doing. You get them trotting nicely, then lope, then trot.. get them trotting nicely, then lop, back to trot.

The transitions will help your horse know when he's nicely put together he can canter and when he comes back down, he needs to calm down. Worked really well for Sky :)
