It feels really different; like when we was strung out it would feel really flat and his head would be high and I couldn't feel a good distinct 3 beats. The other day I was cantering him and when we first started I asked him to slow down and collect a bit and from then on he held it by himself, I didn't have to change him in any way- he was slower, his head was lower, and he felt 'round', and I could feel the 3 beats really well through my seat. It was fun because I had never felt a canter that good before!
He's had some WP and HUS training, but it's been a while, so I think it just had to come back to him. When he's moving that well he just feels so focused and good! :)
