I went up and hacked last night.
Rode in what we hope to be our new show bit...
At the beginning of our ride we had a little fight but he decided I was awarded boss lady status. WOOT! He went well in this bit and I worked really hard at being soft and having a long and low headset. I did lots of transitions and worked on him staying where he belonged.. in the indoor ring his attention is everywhere but me it feels like so it wasn't till the last 15 min of my ride that he was fully to my liking engaged and listening ALL THE WAY AROUND THE RING.
Trainer ride today and she's going to ride in the above bit to see how she likes it. Lesson tomorrow plug mane pulling and clipping. Hack Friday plus a bath and packing the trailer. Hopefully SHOW Saturday and Sunday :)
