So, that has been a big thing that I have been thinking about lately, which has transferred over into our playing. I'm about 1/4 of the way through Klaus' book and it's very, very good. He talks about collection a little bit and says that if you learn how to ask your horse to do things that he normally does out in the pasture (i.e. collection, extended trot, lead changes and other fun things) then the horse will be willing to do it. Well, we've been playing with that and Eddie's doing good with it! He's been sleepy the last couple of days, but I tried it with Scout yesterday and he was collecting himself and just loving how dominant I let him be! Which is really good for him, since he is an introvert.
Anyway, we're playing with that and also doing some cavaletties to get back into shape. :-)
