|but switched bridles because we can|
So we did the clinic Saturday+Sunday, he had Monday off, and I made it back in the saddle late Tuesday afternoon.
IT WAS AMAZING.
|from the weekend, but i love it|
We started with stretching at the walk now, which is like NBD.
Then we stretched at the trot. Also a non-issue.
Then I asked him to stretch and go softly into the canter to the left. BA BAM.
He was so proud of his right canter that we had to repeat it a couple of times so he could do it without leaping, but even then, I had the softest and most rideable canter I've felt on him.
We finished up with hands down the best trot I have ever ridden on him. It was slow and cadenced, with a long, powerful stride that came from an engaged back end and correct stretch into the contact.
If he wasn't so sweet and distinctly gorgeous, I'd say someone switched my horse for one that did dressage. (We'll pretend that I look like I know what I'm doing in a dressage saddle, haha.)
WHY IS THIS SO FUN?
