Went out and rode the beast early this morning before it got too hot, however, it did decide to rain. Which was pretty annoying.
Did some more dressage work, today was better. I really worked on getting him to go forward whilst he was still softening into my hands. Which, was reaaallly chanllenging. I want to work on getting him responsive to my leg. So, I got him to lengthen and shorten his stride again. It really seems to help engaging his mind.
I played around with actually relaxing my hands some more and giving him the chance to 'come' to me, instead of fighting him for it. It actually worked, and seemed to help with the pushing him forward factor to.
Overall, he went nicer, but I still have so much stuff to work on before the shoe season.
