Okay so ever since I've been riding Hero - he's always had this dinky trot. I ride him freely with light contact and push him and its still dinky lol.
To get him to tract up I really have to push him forward and I feel like its a speeding unbalanced trot - I'm sure this is not right??
Well we moved and I have access to a round pen so I was playing around with him in it and boy can he frigging move! I was going to get my cell phone to get video but I didnt want to leave him unattended. Gosh he just float - tip toes almost touched I asked him to move forward and he had a nice extended reach.
So what can I do to help him do this while I'm riding?
Should I have him free lunge a couple times a week to get his muscles moving (he is just coming back to work). And let him get this trot down before I start riding?
