YAY!!!! *applause* You look great, especially considering its only been a couple of days. One thing I did notice is try not to lean back so far when you ask for a stop, try to stay square in the saddle. Also, you might try working on your timing at the trot. Or if he just travels rough, it is okay to post a trot in western. If he seems a little sluggish reacting to the neck rein, it is okay to give him a little nudge with a leg or direct rein just to reinforce it. Just keep working on it. :) GREAT JOB. I pm'd you after I watched your other vid not knowing this one was here. I must say that he is catching on really quick. Be proud of yourself.
Thanks, again again!! XD
Yea its a little hard in trot sometimes because I try to keep him down at a jog so I have 100% control over him before he starts speeding up, otherwise I feel like he's just going his own speed instead of going my
speed, and of course I sometimes put a little too much pressure on the bit to slow him down and he starts walking, especially in the small riding house since there's not much space there..
"When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes." -Shakespeare
