    I'm sooooo happy. I finally got my boy, Sonny, to collect himself both while walking AND trotting.
    I have yet to try with cantering, due to I throw him off balance while cantering, and he trips (because of me...not a soundness issue). I will be trying maybe tomorrow with cantering while collected.

    He's a stubborn boy, took alot of muscles and persistance to keep him collected, but finally he gave up trying to fight haha. By the end of the workout he had a nice sweat, and he seemed actually less tired than he used to be. So his endurance is building up also.

    Tomorrow I'll try getting him collected the whole time

    I am sooo happy. I guess if my horse was originally trained in English I wouldn't be as happy...but since he was a straight trail horse that knew nothing on collecting, it's a big thing for us haha.
