good just keep doing that. Also something my horse did when I taught him flying changes is he would cross canter. Meaning his front legs are on the correct new lead but his hind legs are still on the opposite lead. It will feel real jerky and almost like a 4 beat gait instead of 3 it wont be one fluid motion it will be 2 choppy motions put together. Just something to make sure he is not doing that. If he is drop to a trot and ask again.
