im so proud of him!!
I've been working in side reins with gabriel lately to get him using hisself correctly, going forward, relaxed, not hanging on the bit. I've been warming him up with lunging him with them and then riding him. Well what we've really been working on lately is getting him to not lean on me when he puts his head down and rounds his back which is why I've been using the side reins. Well I had been riding him for a little while today asking him to round and get off my hands and he went for about 5 trot steps in a wonderful headset, giong forward and rounding perfectly without relying on me at all!! Yayy breakthrough! After that we just worked on ground poles but im so proud of him!!!!
