I have to remind myself of this...Tuesday he was a pill and last night he was a pill. It was hot so I planned to just work on trotting... NOT. Henry wouldn't even trot straight, in a light frame or without spooking at the shows/dust. And mind you I wasn't asking for a crazy frame- I was asking that his head not stick straight up in the air.. I had soft contact and wanted him to just plug around.
So our nice easy ride turned into transitions- w, t, c, t, c, halt, w, c, t, halt, t, w, c ... you get the point. FINALLY after lots of wearing him down and I mean LOTS he gave in. Once I got a couple good transitions both ways (ie no head in the air) in each gate I quit.
HARD WORK I tell ya!
Prob lunge today as hubby and I are going out to a fancy dinner for our anniversary. Hack tomorrow.
