Ahh The Mark of Progress

In this picture are a ton of twisting, turning hoof prints. But if you look a little harder you'll be able to see a few near perfect circles.

I was able to get Dice my 3year old (He'll be 4 this friday EEEK my baby's growing up!) Appy to lope some nice balanced circles on the correct lead with every inch of slack in the reins possible, i might as well have not been holding the reins. His body was bent perfectly and it was just an amazing feeling. It was awesome and I could tell that when he figured it out a little light bulb went on in his brain.

I also got his first flying lead change out of him and once he realized that's what I wanted, again I saw the light bulb. He is so smart and so willing to please.

I am so proud of him and not to sound conceded but I'm proud of myself as well (and that's BIG for me because I've never had any confidence in myself) because when I got him back in May he knew NOTHING. I've brought him to where he is today and I couldn't be happier with his progress. He's going to be amazing when all is said and done (though you never are truly done)

So proud of my boy!
