This was last weekend, but I forgot to mention it. :)
Last weekend, Rog and I hadn't ridden since Wednesday.. I was a little worried about what the time off might do. We rode with a different instructor than usual, who I usually don't like.. It was a dressage lesson, so at least I didn't have to worry about his crazy taking off when we were jumping.
Well, at first we were doing pretty simple things. (Trot down the center line, change direction) He was really good!! So the instructor (who knows my pony pretty well) had us do some trotting poles. She was pretty wary ("Make sure he trots! Think slow! Think SLOW!") .. but he was perfect!!! ♥ So we started doing some figure eights, and then cantered on the rail. Best cantering work I have ever
gotton from him! EVER! So slow, smooth, perfect!!
So later we did cantering figure eights with a simple lead change.. this got him excited. So he was going fast but I still got him to trot and switch leads and everything. <33
