Today it was SO nice outside! The sun was shining and it's not too cold out.
So we started with Online and we played with the circling game, weave, sideways and cavaletties. He did great with the circling game. He was relaxed/head down and flexed at the walk, trot and canter. It was really cool to go up on our transitions and keep the quality there. Then we did some long range, far away, sideways. My phases were so light and he did exactly what I did in my body.
Weave was next, and it has gotten incredibly light!!! I didn't do anything but move my ribs. I think we can check that off! =-D
We did some cavaletties next just to get him stretching more. I got some videos, so I'll see if I can upload them quick. =-)
FREESTYLE was next!!!! I hopped on with the finesse reins, and grabbed a helmet and we were off! We practiced the weave and I'm telling you.... Before you do it on their back, do it on the ground! Because it was SO SO SO light!!! I moved my ribs and my leg and he moved right over. I probably wouldn't have even needed reins! Then we spent the rest of our 30 minute session doing impulsion programs and a tiny bit of collection. It was great!!
I love my boy ~ =-)
